One of the most moving passages in the Bible is Jesus' High-Priestly prayer in John 17, in which He prays to His heavenly Father on behalf of His followers. Here unfold the majestic themes of our assurance of salvation, our union with Him, our sanctification, and His loving care for all who believe in Him.
When you are discouraged, uncertain, or anxious, you can turn to this passage for comfort and reassurance—and find that the Lord Jesus Christ has already claimed you as His own. Before you were born, before the world was made, those who belong to Him were destined for an eternal inheritance.
In this masterful, verse-by-verse exposition of our Savior's prayer—originally four books and now brought together in one volume—the great preacher and Bible teacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones gleans timeless truths of the faith for Christians today. With rare insight and power, Dr. Lloyd-Jones lays before us the richness, the depth, the wonder—and the assurance—of God's plan of salvation.

In John 17 Jesus prays for His disciples and all believers. In this book, one of the century's most gifted preachers looks at why and what Christ prayed to reveal the eternal truths of these beautiful verses. Martyn Lloyd-Jones also studies the passage's grand themes of salvation, Kingdom unity, God's provision for His followers, and the process of sanctification that enables us to live as new creatures in Christ in an ungodly world.
Previously printed as four individual books, this unequaled exposition of the Savior's prayer for His own ends with a glimpse of the glory to come when our sancitification will be complete. Lloyd-Jones's deep theological insights and grasp of Scripture are evident, yet his classic style brings a simplicity that everyone can understand.
