MacArthur has authored or edited more than 150 books, most notably the MacArthur Study Bible, which has sold more than 1 million copies and received a Gold Medallion Book Award. Other best-selling books include his MacArthur New Testament Commentary Series (more than 1 million copies), It took 40 Years for John MacArthur to preach VERSE by VERSE through the New Testament. Read as many of his books as you can.
1) The skilled writing of Iain Murray, as he beautifully portrays the life and ministry of MacArthur
2) The inspiring person and work of John MacArthur, as Murray details the huge impact on the church that his ministry and commitment to serving his people through the Word of God have made
3) The breathtaking work of our God in building His church and transforming lives through the preaching of His Word.
This is an excellent sketch of a truly inspiring man.
John MacArthur is near my age, perhaps he has a few yr on me, but this book will make you feel very good if you are a believer...& know that we have had this man for so long doing what he does best...getting the bible he loves so much, and which is about the redeemer Jesus Christ whom he loves so much...getting that message out to all he can...and oh my, is he and his great staff in ministry doing it.
Go now to gty.org and see (all free) 1,000's of his sermons and watch him at the church near L.A. or use audio. I prefer seeing him so I am not distracted by my lamp or a chair in my room, etc. All fine or great preachers are alike in ways, esp John Mac... when he takes the bible book he is in and vs by vs he goes through it, not sliding over the hard parts...He will glean out the meaning of what the text is saying and whom it is saying it to.
Just go to Amazon or go to gty.org and order it but be ready for a fine read. Two things I love about this man & ministry is his humility, when you see all he is involved with, he tells you plainly it is God's work, he is a steward of what God gave him, etc. Another thing I do love so much is that he will (so clearly but firmly if need be) let it be known about the ones who deceive millions of Christians...He tells those interested in religious matters about the big name persons that bear title of "Christian" as belonging to them but some of us see the incredible denying of the God, the Savior of the bible...& John is the only well known preacher I have seen stand up and warn all of the false teachers, etc. that are out there...like the apostle Paul, if he has to he will warn and name if necessary. John is not afraid and does not seek popularity...he is concerned only that he lives best he is able to obey, glorify his God and Savior.
I hear now that Rick Warren is America's pastor, it used to be Billy Graham...pardon me but I think John MacArthur will always preach the full gospel, tell the truth, there will be no shadowy things with John. as with some others...no resorting to entertainment and serious error in his preaching...God bless and use Pastor John MacArthur.......wally.
On the negative side, this really is a brief sketch setting up for a more thorough biography in the future. There are many short anecdotes that don't tell the whole story, and there are many quotes that only seem to give a sparse outline of some of the topics. The book did not really give me a highly personal touch of the life of this great man. As a young man, I would have been greatly encouraged by more information on his growing college and seminary years. Most of the main points have to do with how the ministry of Grace to You has grown along with MacArthur's other publications--but this leaves a lot more information to be desired about the man.
Overall, I enjoyed the work, found many encouraging things in it, but would like to see a more personal and comprehensive biography in the future.
