The Personal Side of Lloyd-Jones

Jeff Robinson | April 3, 2015

Surely, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, who died in 1981, embodies the words of Hebrews 11:4: being dead, yet he speaks. The Doctor’s sermons live on in dozens of volumes published by various companies, and if you want to hear him preach, it is as easy as the click of a mouse. The Martyn Lloyd-Jones Trust is home to more than 1,600 of his sermons in downloadable audio format.

At the MLJ Trust website, you will find all 366 sermons from his verse-by-verse exposition of Romans, 232 sermons from his series on Ephesians, the 24 sermons that made up the book Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Its Cure, among hundreds of others. Jonathan Catherwood, one of the Doctor’s six grandchildren, is a board member of the MLJ Trust and has been largely responsible for bringing the voice of his grandfather back to life. The Gospel Coalition interviewed Catherwood and asked him about Lloyd-Jones as a grandfather, a Christian man, and as a shepherd of the sheep at Westminster Chapel.

Editors’ note: A brand-new film on the life and ministry of Martyn Lloyd-Jones will debut at The Gospel Coalition 2015 National Conference: Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
