Book Description

Theology isn't just for scholars-it is for everyone. For that reason Martyn Lloyd-Jones gave a series of lectures at Westminster Chapel to help ordinary people understand and apply theology to their own lives. This book is the fruit of those lectures.

Previously published in three separate volumes, they are now combined into one work-a complete systematic Christian theology. Among others, the book covers Christian beliefs about Scripture, the attributes of God, the life and work of Jesus, the Fall, redemption, the person and work of the Holy Spirit, the nature of the church, and last things. The book is written in clear language and contains guidance for application. Anyone who wishes to learn more about the great doctrines of the Bible but doesn't want to wade through lengthy academic works should read this book.

God the Father, God the Son

This volume focuses on the very character of God and the life and work of his Son, including his eternal decrees, his attributes, original sin, redemption, the covenant of grace, and the Incarnation. God the Father, God the Son will help you to truly know God and his Word better. And in that pursuit, you can never go wrong. Because someday, somewhere, you will need to know–and share–the Truth with someone else.

God the Holy Spirit

This volume explores in detail the person and vital work of the Holy Spirit. He is a divine and mighty power who is active in conversion, redemption, regeneration, sanctification, and the assurance of salvation. Martyn Lloyd-Jones also considers within these pages Pentecost, baptism of the Spirit, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit–all to give you a better understanding of this least-known member of the Trinity.

The Church and the Last Things

This volume explores in detail two doctrines that bear great impact on your today and all your tomorrows: the nature of the church, and the doctrine of the last things. Here is perspective on the Bible's various references to the church, plus a study of unity, baptism , church government, and the sacraments–all according to Scripture. Martyn Lloyd-Jones also carefully considers the various views regarding Christ's second coming, what God's Word communicates about the last days, and the meaning of Jesus' return for ourselves as well as the world. It's important reading, not just for admirers of this great preacher, but for Christians everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes! June 1, 2005
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Doctor Delivers! October 8, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars The first two volumes were well worth the third. August 17, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars no nonsense reading January 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Doctor is always the best read for those who want no nonsense reading.
My Favorite (read 4 times so far)is the Dr's BIO by Iain Murray 2vol.
Sermon on the Mount is wonderful and then this one.
The Doctor gets right to the heart of the matter
for writing these volumes and does so in a plain sensible english read.

No high almighty/lost me there style - just the intro gives clarity and
common sense in how we should know the doctrines of scripture. And how
one should use these doctrines to SOLA DEO GLORIA and not ignore what is
getting to be so obvious in churches today.

All I can say is get it - read it and be glad. For there are few that could hold
a candle to the Doctor today. Worth every penny; book or Kindle.

Just when you think that Doctrine is boring and reads too much like a dictionary, Dr. Lloyed-Jones makes the teachings of the Bible out to be personable and lively. It was preached to his own church and then rewritten for publication.
A reader may not agree with everything in the book, that is just the fact of growing and learning broadly. However, where there maybe disagreement, the Dr. will present what is the best balanced and informative insights. You will know better why there is a disagreement. On doctrines where there are better agreement (which maybe most of the volumes) the Dr. has done a wonderful job in presenting the subjects and enables the reader to learn more than the reader once thought on the subject.
This is a gem among other great works from Dr. Lloyed-Jones.

For those who have a kindle, you are really saving big on this one. It is an amazing price for this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anchor of faith May 11, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I started reading MLJ in 1981. Since then I thought I had bought and read every book that had come out of MLJ's ministry but I was wrong. Somehow I missed this tome, and like all MLJ's books, is a treasure. Although it has been described as a book on systematic theology (there were actually 3 books), it reads like a Bible Study, which is exactly what it was. I thought only MLJ's pulpit sermons were published, but from what I read in the introductory chapter. this book grew out of Friday night bible studies that MLJ conducted in a hall in Westminster Chapel but then moved to the Chapel itself, from whence he preached his sermons on Romans. I've have read the first 2 chapters, and it is typical MLJ - except that he wasn't doing a verse by verse exposition. It is more topical and, as always, bible-based through and through. If you are looking for discussion of philosophers through the ages, you would do better elsewhere. I have had my share of reading those but I have ever and always learnt more from the Doctor over the years. This is a great book to read and to ponder. You feel that firm anchor whenever you read him, and this is no exception here. The book looks good on your shelf too though I don't think the Doctor would approve if that is all you are going to do with it.
