Logic On Fire the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, will be available April 14, 2015.
When Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones gave a series of lectures on the subject of preaching in 1969, he coined a term that became an emblematic description of his own ministry. “What is preaching?”, he asked. “Logic on fire!” But what does it mean and how does it manifest itself in preaching? Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones charts the story of this remarkable man, widely considered one of the most influential preachers of the 20th century.
Medically trained at St. Bartholomew’s hospital in 1920’s London, Lloyd-Jones shocked many when he announced he would leave medicine to become the pastor of a small church in Aberavon, Wales. Years later he was called to central London to Westminster Chapel, where he gained considerable national influence and international notoriety for his dynamic expositional preaching. More than simply a recounting of the man’s life, Logic on Fire examines Lloyd-Jones’s 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 evangelicalism today. 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.
