In the first volume of the collection, Lloyd-Jones begins his panoramic description of the wondrous and glorious work of God in Jesus Christ. Topics discussed include: the concepts of adoption, redemption, grace, peace and glory; what it means to be sealed with the Spirit, the final consummation, and many others.
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899–1981) was born in Cardiff. He attended St. Bartholomew’s Hospital as an assistant to the famous Lord Horder. Returning to Wales after leaving medicine in 1927, he became the minister of a Welsh Presbyterian Church in Aberavon, South Wales. He was there until 1938 when he moved to London to share the ministry of Westminster Chapel in Buckingham Gate with the late Dr. G. Campbell Morgan. This ministry lasted for 30 years until Dr. Lloyd-Jones retired in August 1968. He best-loved works include Singing to the Lord, Not Against Flesh and Blood, Heirs to Salvation, and True Happiness.
