Beginning August 4, at our 4:00pm Sunday Afternoon Study, we will be reviewing the life and ministry of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones in a DVD series entitled Logic on Fire. All are welcome. Come and learn with us!
When Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899—1981) gave a series of lectures on the subject of preaching in 1969, he coined a phrase that became an emblematic description of his own ministry: “What is preaching?” he asked. “Logic on fire!” But what exactly does it mean, and how does it manifest?
Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones charts the story of this most remarkable man, widely considered to be one of the most influential preachers of the 20th century. Medically trained at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, Lloyd-Jones shocked many when he announced he would leave medicine to become the pastor of a small church in Aberavon, Wales. He was eventually called to Westminster Chapel in central London, where he gained considerable national influence and international renown for his dynamic expository preaching.
More than simply a recounting of the man’s life, Logic on Fire examines Lloyd-Jones’ home life, his spiritual influences, the emphasis he brought to his two pastorates, the way he sought a union of “logic” and “fire” in preaching, as well as his continued relevance and influence in conservative evangelicalism today. Featuring interviews with his family, official biographer, and many close friends, as well as international ministers who have been influenced by the Doctor’s preaching, Logic on Fire emphasizes not only the need for clarity in preaching, tenderness in pastoring, and carefulness in worship, but also a humble dependence upon God to make the work of the ministry effective.
