Read this book, and you just might begin living the life you were called to live when you first became a Christian!
The first chapters of this book freed me to believe again that Christianity is not just the ability to quote verse. Lloyd-Jones acknowledged all my skepticism because of the behavior I had seen Christians exhibit all my life. I found myself nodding and saying "yes, this is SO true." And it opened my heart for the truth of what Jesus had to say.
This book made me realize that I can call myself a Christian but what is truly in my heart and demonstrated in my behavior calls me something other.
I keep my student bible close by as he references many different parts and I would often find myself leaving his book to read his references. I try to read a chapter a day. I highlight, I make notes and when I'm done, I'm going to start again. Along with this book and my bible, I pray. Lloyd-Jones made me realize that I cannot exhibit Christ-like behavior of my own free will - it is only through Christ that this can happen - it is not natural behavior. My prayer is that others will see the change in me and ask me about it so I can be a light unto this world.
Additionally, I really haven't had much use for the Old Testament but I am eager to read and understand the entire bible now that this book has shown me that Jesus referenced the OT Scriptures that he expounded on them and that He actually fulfilled the prophesy of the Scriptures. I can no longer believe that the OT is irrelevant.
You will have questions answered and know what it means to accept Christ in your heart.Read more ›
I have read a chapter a day in one sitting and can't wait to start over and do it again. Because each chapter is a sermon, the full flavor of the author's words and lessons would be much diminished by stopping in the middle and picking up again the next day. I plan to record this myself on CDs to play in the car (or, if you know anyone else who has done this, let me know!). I gave up starring the chapters as "this one is REALLY GOOD!" because the profundity and "aha!" moments are pervasive throughout.
This is not one to put on your list of "books I must have if stranded on a desert island" because the injunctions are only meaningful if lived out in community. (In fact, the author decries monasticism frequently.)
I would have to say as a lay person that the most profound illumination received from my first reading of the book is "the principle of the integrated whole" of the Sermon on the Mount. Bits and pieces of it have been thrown at me all my life ("Ask and it shall be given you"), but no one ever related the bits in context. I'm afraid I will violate the intent of the Sermon (to show me HOW to love my neighbor) the next time someone tries that! (Note to self: "first remove the beam from your own eye.")
What should the Christian's life look like? How do I "flesh out" the Sermon in my walking-around-every-day life? Read and weep.
