15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By John R. McClure on December 21, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is one of many great works by Lloyd-Jones. Though 672 pages might seem excessive to devote to one chapter of one book in the Bible, each page is filled with spiritual truths presented for laymen, but with scholarship. I believe that the subject of assurance is one of the most overlooked and misunderstood Christian doctrines. This book gives glory to the Lord our God, Jesus Christ who is the author and perfecter of our salvation, and comfort to those whom he has saved.

22 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Jacques Schoeman on September 26, 2007
Format: Hardcover
'And as we watch Him in prayer, we see Him there as the appointed mediator, the One who has been sent by God to do certain work and to complete it here on earth for us. Therefore, to look at our Lord praying is perhaps one of the most wonderful doors of entry into the great mystery of His blessed person.' p 32

This unusually great in size and especially in scope book is a good exposition of the prayer that forms part of the Farewell Discourse in the Gospel of John. It contains much needed insight and could profitably be used for teaching others how to pray as our Lord Christ Himself prayed, demonstrating supplication, confession, and doxology beautifully as components of timeless principles of prayer.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones was the Westminster Chapel preacher for more than 30 years and is recognized as one of the greatest preachers of the 20th century. JI Packer felt that at the time of preaching these sermons in the early 1950s, the Dr was 'on a plateau of supreme excellence'. These sermons are in their original sermonic form. It was against 'ecumenism' that Martyn Lloyd-Jones would soon stand against primarily.

In His high-priestly prayer (John 17) Christ prayed for His followers to remain in this broken sin-laden world, for God to keep them in it - not for them to be removed from it. MLJ explains why:

'OUR SECURITY IN GOD', Ch. 4, John 17:1-5 p 55

'This is the first thing we have to take hold of: salvation is entirely the idea of God. It emanates from and has its origin in God the Father. Now this is a staggering thought! So often, you and I feel we have to placate God because of sin, our sin in us, and sin in the world.

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones has long been one of my favorite preachers to read behind. This work, The Assurance of Our Salvation, is a prime example of why his ministry is still loved by so many people and continues decades after his death. Lloyd-Jones had the ability to preach masterfully and was a wonderful expositor whose digging into the text cannot be matched. Yet with all of the depth that he brought to his sermons they are surprisingly readable.

This work was originally published as four separate books: Saved in Eternity, Safe in the World, Sanctified Through the Truth and Growing in the Spirit. It is now one volume filling over 650 pages covering John Chapter 17. These are sermons that were preached at the Westminster Chapel in 1952-53. This should certainly go down as the most complete treatment of this chapter of the Bible. In reading his work, Preaching and Preachers a few months ago I picked up on his phrase "logic on fire" to describe good preaching and this is exactly what this book gives its reader. It is amazing to read the wisdom, depth and knowledge of Lloyd-Jones as it blends with his passion. It is clear on every page that his desire is to glorify God and to turn people's hearts to Him.

There are 48 sermons/chapters in this book as the Doctor steps through John chapter 17 word by word. Anyone who treasures this Chapter in the Gospel of John would do themselves a favor in buying this book. It will give its reader depth that is unmatched as well as passion that comes from God. What a wonderful treat for Crossway to publish this in one volume and make it available. Buy this book. You will be blessed by it.
I received a review copy of this book from Crossway in exchange for an honest review.
