Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones is among the finest preachers of the twentieth century. In The Sacred Anointing, Tony Sargent explores the man, the methods and the motives behind this master preacher. He also considers the central place which divine “unction” played in Lloyd-Jones’ life and the prophetic quality of his ministry.
There are good preachers and there are great preachers. The Sacred Anointing presents the place of preaching and the Spirit’s anointing in the life and thought of one of the finest preachers in modern times, Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
Called "a landmark study" by J. I. Packer, The Sacred Anointing is a revelation of the power of God and the effect this has on preacher and listener alike. As Lloyd-Jones once said: "To me there is nothing more terrible for a preacher than to be in the pulpit alone, without the conscious smile of God."
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones knew only too well that it was not just attentive preparation and correct application of Scripture that inspired or moved listeners, it was the work of the Holy Spirit—"the conscious smile of God."
Anyone who ever felt the power of God in a Lloyd-Jones sermon, in the flesh, on tape or in print, will find this book fascinating and enriching. Preachers will gain from these pages a searching health check, and perhaps a needed course correction. Sargent's book is a landmark study.
—J. I. Packer, Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Regent College, Vancouver
I unreservedly and wholeheartedly recommend this book. Tony Sargent has served us magnificently.

The book creates in preachers a hunger to position themselves to catch the wind of the Spirit in the preparation and delivery of sermons. Pertinent hermeneutical and homiletical wisdom drawn from this great preacher of a recent age is woven throughout the book. Preachers who desire “to preach not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction” (1 Thess. 1:5) should invest prayerful time in this book.
