Book Description

Martyn Lloyd Jones survived a household fire when only ten years old. His family faced financial disaster as a result and a period of separation when his father left to find work in Canada. Eventually they were reunited in London where Martyn went to school, became one of the youngest entrants to the medical school at St Bartholomew's at the age of 16 and discovered a life long passion for politics.
The story covers Martyn's conversion, his calling to be a preacher and then his ministry in Wales and London. This story covers anecdotes from his Welsh childhood as well as thought provoking instances from Martyn's life as a pastor at Westminster Chapel. An excellent book to promote discussion in a youth group or even to start a youngster thinking about their faith; the bible and different issues for themselves.
"TRY ANOTHER TRAILBLAZER: Life is an adventure, Robert Murray McCheyne by Irene Howat. A missionary and a pastor with a difference - he travelled far but realised you don't have to do this to change your world for the better."

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous introduction for teenagers August 30, 2000
Format:Paperback
This is a FABULOUS introduction for teenagers to one of the best loved Christian leaders of the 20th Century. It makes "the Doctor" into a fully rounded human being. The author is his eldest grandchild, and for fans of Dr Lloyd-Jones it is great to see that he was as wonderful a grandfather as he was a world famous preacher and writer. Buy this book yourself and then buy a copy for your youth pastor - and, why not - all the teenagers in your family as well. Everyone of all ages can profit by reading this brilliant book.

With the opening line, `Fire! Fire!' this biography of Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones begins introducing a youth audience to the famous preacher. Written by Lloyd-Jones' oldest grandson, Christopher Catherwood, in a simple, homespun-story fashion, it contains lots of wonderful, personal anecdotes and some eye-witness accounts not found in the more substantial biographies of the Doctor done by others. It follows young Martyn from his family and school days in Wales, through his education and work experiences in London, marking the major turning points of his conversion, his marriage and his call to preach the gospel.

The language is clearly aimed at younger readers, and the length of the chapters is just right. Although the overall writing style (or perhaps the editing) is sometimes rough or repetitive, the story-line and pace definitely engage the reader making it hard to put down. You cannot help but sense the warm, personal touch of a grandson writing about his beloved "Dacu" throughout the book.

The book clearly shares the hand of the Lord in the life of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and makes the need for all boys and girls to likewise come to know Jesus Christ as savior and Lord. There are several passages which not only describe Martyn's spiritual life, but which directly address the reader about their spiritual needs.

My review is based on the newly released e-reader edition which I read on my Kindle. [NB: this was provided free in exchange for posting a book review online]. I had first read this little book when I gave a printed copy to my own children years ago. Perhaps the formatting made me a bit more critical in this second read through? I love books and reading them in print, but have come to enjoy using my Kindle for reading history, biographies and the like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for adults and kids! January 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read the 1200 page definitive biography of Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones by Iain Murray but really enjoyed this children’s version as well and would recommend it to adults who would like a short introduction to this man. It is written by his grandson, Christopher Catherwood, who is an author and teacher who divides his time between Cambridge and Richmond, Virginia. His grandson had a close relationship with him growing up and the love and respect he has for his grandfather was obvious. It was a rare privilege to read a biography by one who was so close to the person and who has the same convictions and the same heart. Most of it I knew from the longer biography, but some of it was personal reflections and stories gained firsthand by his grandson. It seemed to be written with preteens and young teens in mind. The language at times was different than what we use in America and sometimes you had to infer the meaning of a word or phrase, but it was not hard to understand, and I found the English or Welsh colloquialisms added to the authenticity and quaintness of the story.

I love the fact that he deals with things that many children’s books don’t, especially the conversion stories he gives of different people in Dr. Lloyd Jones’s congregation. Some of these were men who had spent decades in sin and reading about the change that Christ brought in their lives was exciting.

The best thing about the book, though, is that it points children to the Bible as the only source of truth. This was something Dr. Lloyd Jones sought to impress on others, to look to the Bible and not to him for answers. His grandson obviously caught that lesson and seeks to pass it on to others.
