When I started this audiobook, I thought it was going to be a biography of Lloyd-Jones’ life so I was surprised when his whole life story was completed by chapter one! But the story goes on in detail about Jones’ passion for expository preaching and the influence of that passion even to today. It was fascinating! You would think most preachers (and their hearers) would want expository preaching in their churches but that wasn’t the case. I admired his focus on wanting to preach exactly what the text is saying and not adding his own “spin” on it. He encouraged others to do this as well and I was saddened to learn that he was met with some resistance to this. But he did not waiver in his passion! I’m thankful for men like Martyn Lloyd-Jones and that there are others today who are following in his footsteps to rightly handle the Word of God.
At times the narrator, Simon Vance, seemed a little monotone but for the most part he did well. He kept me engaged throughout the entire reading and has a pleasant voice.
I would definitely recommend this!
