In order to introduce a new generation of preachers to "the Doctor" this book published in 1972 has been reissued. All the material from a series of lectures the Doctor gave in 1969 at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia - and is still very relevant to the times in which we are living in the 21st century. The Doctor was one who knew his cultural climate and ministered in a setting in London, that (especially in comparison with big cities in America) was ahead of its time in terms of a naturalistic worldview and skepticism toward religion and the gospel. However, he never backed down from the primacy and centrality of preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ from the Scriptures.

It's doubtful that very many preachers will agree with everything Lloyd-Jones has to say in this book, but it's also very probable that you will gain profound insight, wisdom, and be encouraged in your preaching. You will most certainly be convinced of the importance of preaching, the relevance of preaching, and become a better gospel empowered preacher as a result of reading this book.

What's different about the 40th edition? Well, the 1972 version has been left in tact, but there are several very welcome features:

Several new essays by modern preachers who share what they have learned and applied from the Doctor - Ligon Duncan writes an essay entitled, "Some things to Look For and Wrestle With;" Tim Keller writes an essay called "A Tract for the Times;" John Piper writes on "Martyn Lloyd-Jones: The Preacher;" Kevin DeYoung writes an essay on "Preaching for Brand New and Tired Old Preachers;" Mark Dever writes on "What I've Learned about Preaching From Martyn Lloyd-Jones;" and lastly Bryan Chapell pens "Martyn Lloyd-Jones: An Uncommon Zeal.

When God called me to serve the church as a pastor, he called me to preach. Though I was extremely shy and loathed the spotlight, I couldn't escape the growing desire to stand and declare God's Word. This desire grew in a simple way: through reading the Bible. The more time I spent with God in his Word, the more I longed to stand and declare. But, just as the artisans who built and decorated the temple needed both skill and the Spirit I knew I needed some training.

Preaching & Preachers' was originally a series of lectures given by Dr. Lloyd-Jones at Westminster Theological Seminary in 1972. In it he sought to provide a vision for preaching that would encourage and equip a generation of preachers. This 40th anniversary edition has added short articles by contemporary preachers influenced by Lloyd-Jones to help introduce the next generation to his infectious desire to declare God's Word.

He leads us to ground our preaching in a confident assurance that the Bible 'is' God's Word and preaching it accomplishes God's work. It is the centerpiece of the worship of the church and ought to reflect that position. Preaching must be educational, spiritual and experimental (experiential). We must learn, be moved by the Spirit and be moved in our hearts. Thus, preaching is a sacred act which must be approached with humility and worship.

In my journey to grow as a preacher of God's word I have spent time in many books on the subject. But, 'Preaching & Preachers' has proved to be one of the best. Any pastor - young or old - needs to spend some time with the Doctor and catch his vision for the preaching of God's Word. I not only learned something about preaching I was set on fire once again for this work to which God has called me. If you're looking for a book to help you grow in your preaching, this one is it!

"The most urgent need in the Christian Church today is true preaching; and as it is the greatest and most urgent need in the Church, it is obviously the greatest need of the world also" (p. 17)

It is with these timeless words that Martin Lloyd-Jones begins Preaching & Preachers which is one of the most classic books on preaching. Lloyd-Jones faithfully ministered to the congregation at Westminster Chapel in London for over thirty years and the thousands of sermons he preached there echo throughout the Christian world even today. Originally given as a series of lectures to the students of Westminster Theological Seminary, Preaching & Preachers is a clarion call for ministers of the gospel to take their task of preaching seriously.

If the most urgent need in the Christian church is true preaching then "the primary task of the Church and of the Christian minister is the preaching of the Word of God" (p. 27). But the urgency Lloyd-Jones speaks to is not just the timeless need for preaching the truth of Scripture. Lloyd-Jones believed that preaching in the church was waining:

"While men believed in the Scriptures as the authoritative Word of God and spoke on the basis of that authority you had great preaching. But as belief in the great doctrines of the Bible began to go out, and sermons were replaced by ethical addresses and homolies, and moral uplift and socio-political talk, it is not surprising that preaching declined" (p. 21).

For Lloyd-Jones, there was an untie-able knot joining belief in Scripture as the authoritative Word of God and truly great authoritative preaching. If one does not accept the authority of Scripture then how can one preach the words it contains with any kind of authority?
