Ephesians 4:17 to the end of Paul’s letter represents the last great division in the epistle, wherein Paul comes to the practical application of the earlier teaching. Lloyd-Jones’s fifth volume is concerned with sin in a pagan world, the differences between sinful and righteous anger, how to communicate with fellow Christians, the emptiness of Christless living, and many other essential truths gleaned from Ephesians.
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.
