Knowing the Times

Addresses Delivered on Various Occasions 1942-1977
By: Martyn LLoyd-Jones

Book Reivew

This book has sat on my shelf for a few years, and I have been looking forward to it. As I made my way through it, I was disappointed (in comparison to my anticipation of it). I ended up skimming through it without much reason to slow down and dive into the meat of the chapters.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones (MLJ) is an excellent expositor of the Scriptures, and I think that is where he shines best. The contents of this book is a collection of sermons, speeches, and radio addresses over a period of time. During the time they were originally given, people would have likely been very pleased because of his reputation and timely words. The core principles are good, but much of the other content (i.e. current situation, outlook in the world, manner of speaking, illustrations) are out of date. And, it is less compelling to read a compilation of of someone's speaking than a book specifically prepared for the subject of its title.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
