Our next men's study is Great Doctrines of the Bible, a comprehensive and accessible systematic theology of the Christian faith by Martyn Lloyd-Jones. We'll meet Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm beginning September 5, 2019. (Click here for Volume 1 Study Questions.)
In our current culture with its multiple world views, it is essential that we think with clarity about issues of sound biblical doctrine because so much in our world—from the media to our schools—openly defies biblical Truth.
If you’ve realized the urgency of establishing the doctrinal ground on which you stand, the chapters of this book will help you build that foundation. Lloyd-Jones clearly explains the character and ministries of each person of the trinity, as well as the Bible’s teaching on the church, the afterlife, and end times. If you want to learn more about the great doctrines of the Bible but don’t want to wade through lengthy academic works, here is a complete guide that will help you learn and integrate Christian doctrine with your daily life.
From the book jacket:
On Friday evenings in post-World War II London, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones held discussions in one of the halls of Westminster Chapel. These discussions tackled the practical issues of the Christian life, but the questions that arose often involved matters of doctrine. The meetings were so well-attended, and so many people were asking about biblical doctrines, that Lloyd-Jones moved the meetings into the Chapel itself and began to give a series of lectures on doctrine. Out of those lectures came the initial material for a three-volume series, Great Doctrines of the Bible. Now this material is combined into one volume—a systematic theology of the Christian faith.
Concerned that the truth be in words “understood by the people” and that it not remain only in the head, Lloyd-Jones uses clear language and makes application in each chapter. Through this book he extends to Christians a compelling invitation to study the Scriptures and to learn and integrate doctrine with daily life. For when we do, we encounter the riches of God’s grace and come to understand more deeply the significance of the cross.
This volume includes the following three books in one:
- God the Father, God the Son
- God the Holy Spirit
- The Church and the Last Things
About the Author:
