If you’ve ever asked, “Why am I the way that I am? Why is life so hard? Is there any hope?” you’ll find answers in Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ study of Genesis.
In this series of sermons, beloved teacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones walks readers through the early chapters of Genesis. The Gospel in Genesis starts with the fall of man and ends with the call of Abram as it examines portions of chapters 3–12. Along the way, Lloyd-Jones talks of serpents and sin, the Word of God, and the Babel of man. But the destination of The Gospel in Genesis is clear: readers will be moved from fig leaves in the garden to faith in the Gospel.
Thus Lloyd-Jones preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the pages of Genesis. These nine sermons will embolden believers to share the only Gospel that offers answers to life’s biggest questions.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899–1981) is recognized as one of the last century’s most gifted preachers and writers. He was influential in the Reformed wing of the British evangelical movement in the twentieth century. Lloyd-Jones first studied medicine, but left that field and went to Wales in 1927 to follow his calling to preach. He became the minister of a Welsh Presbyterian Church in Abervon, South Wales where he ministered for a decade. In 1929, Lloyd-Jones went to London where he was appointed the associate pastor of Westminster Chapel working alongside G. Campbell Morgan. This ministry lasted for 30 years until Lloyd-Jones retired in 1968. He also served as Inter-Varsity Fellowship of Students which is known today as the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship.
