The Ministry of Martyn Lloyd-Jones

"The words to which I should like to call your attention are to be found in..."

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (20 December 1899 – 1 March 1981) frequently began his sermons with these words, as he would draw his audience's attention to a specfic passage of Scripture. Lloyd-Jones was not only one of the greatest preachers of the 20th Century, he was one of the greatest preachers in history. This is what he is best known for today and will be best known for as a historical figure. Less well known is the fact that earlier in his career, Lloyd-Jones was a brilliant physician and scientist. He graduated with distinction in medicine in 1921 at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, earning his MD two years later. He served as chief clinical assistant to Sir Thomas Horder (the King's physician) and carried out research on bacterial endocarditis. His research is still cited by scientists today.

From 12 April 2012, over 1,600 recorded sermons by Lloyd-Jones will available to download FREE of charge from the Martyn-Lloyd Jones Recordings Trust website. Only a once-off registration is required.
