This is one of the bests books I have ever read. It is essentially a systematic theology usuing the same format as Calvin's Institute's, or Charles Hodge or Louis Berkhof, but it is so much more accessable to modern readers, especially lay-people. It is precise and Biblical, without wondering from the main line of thought. Very, very good.

For those of us who own Kindles and love sound doctrine, this book is a must have! A warning: the table of contents is operative only for volume 1, you'll have to bookmark the location for the TOC for volumes 2 & 3 though the links will be inoperative. Hopefully the publisher will fix this. I bought the hardback edition of this book recently, and it is BIG. The convenience of having it on the Kindle and at this great a price is a real blessing for those of us who love biblical teachings. Now, if only Wayne Grudems's book would come down in price!

Great Doctrines of the Bible is a three in one book, now published in paperback by Crossway, that come from lectures that Martyn Lloyd-Jones gave at Westminister Chapel from 1952 to 1955. This book provides a very readable systematic theology for believers to benefit greatly from. Nearly all of the Lloyd-Jones books that I have read were adapted from sermons or lectures that he gave, and yet they all read very well. Not many writes can present difficult material in such a clear and understandable way. This is what Lloyd-Jones excels at.

The first volume of this collection is God the Father, God the Son. This Volume discusses areas such as: the authority of Scripture, the existence and attributes of God, creation, the fall, sin, the covenant of Grace and Christ's work on the cross and His place as Prophet, Priest and King. Lloyd-Jones treatment of these topics is such a blessing to the church. Christians would do well to read and study behing the Doctor and soak up the wisdom that these pages hold.

The second volume is God the Holy Spirit. This volume covers the person and work of the Holy Spirit and the Order of Salvation. He has a Reformed teaching and view of the order of salvation and he clearly explains this in this volume. It is refreshing how Lloyd-Jones is able to address other views and test them in light of Scripture. When examining an Armenian view he does not simply "bash them" and move on, but rather he reasons with Scripture to prove the Reformed view is most Scriptural.

The last volume is The Church and the Last Things. This volume covers Ecclesiology and Eschatology. This is my favorite section of this book.

Any of God's people would profit from a reading of the first two volumes of this set. I found myself highlighting page after page and telling friends and family about every insight I encountered at every opportunity. What distinguishes this treatment of theology from others I have attempted to read is the fact that the author presents his material as a pastor to a congregation rather than as a textbook to a seminary class. Five stars for the first two volumes.

I am absolutely positive volume three is every bit as good as the first two, unless you are a dispensationalist. Not that he doesn't make some telling points. I was struck hard by the fact that the doctrine of the rapture of the church had not existed before 1830 and came into being not as the result of careful Bible study and exegesis but as the result of a 'revelation' at a prophecy conference. I was thinking there really might be something to his school of eschatology until he began a presentation of the book of Revelation. It's not that I think Dr. Lloyd-Jones is dead wrong; I was so confused by the spiritualizing of absolutely everything that I just gave up all hope of understanding any prophecy under his system.

Having said that, I am glad I bought the books; I will keep them and refer to them often and recommend them to others every chance I get.

Since being introduced to systematic theology in my days as an undergraduate student in Bible school, when I come across a good volume in this field, I receive it with excitement and enthusiasm; and reference it quite frequently. By "systematic theology" meaning of course the orderly presentation, by topic, of what the whole Bible teaches on a given theological matter. And, off hand, I can think of a handful of standard systematics that I would recommend should a person inquire. Among that group, though, there is one that sticks out as unique. Where many systematics are quite predictable in the manner in which the material is presented, I have found one that communicates with a different style and tone, and is intensely practical. In that, this systematic is really simply a collection of recorded sermons on various topics within classic systematic theology. Simply, it is systematic theology preached.

From 1952 to 1955, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones presented a series of sermons/lectures on Friday evenings in one of the halls of Westminster Chapel in London. Addressing, by request of the people, various matters of doctrine, the good Doctor, would expound upon the topic in his classic engaging, reverent, and wonderfully practical manner of preaching. These talks became so well attended that they had to move into the main Chapel itself.

Lloyd-Jones is recorded as saying, "Preaching is theology coming through a man who is on fire." In Crossway Books' republication of 3 classic Lloyd-Jones volumes in one, we find this sentiment demonstrated. Great Doctrines of the Bible is a recent reprint of God the Father, God the Son; God the Holy Spirit; and The Church and the Last Things, in one bound paperback volume. Though lengthy, the content within is intensely edifying.
