More About Herbert Lockyer
Herbert Lockyer was born on the outskirts of London, England in 1886. His parents were non-believers so Herbert had very little Christian training. His father was employed by the Woolwich Arsenal; there they manufactured weapons and arms for the British military.
While working at the same factory with his father, Herbert pursued acting, his was a resonant voice, standing at 6’3”, with a commanding presence, it seemed that young Mr. Lockyer was destined for a career on the stage. Yet, the direction of his life was altered, when he fell in love with Lily Flory.
Lily was a devoted Christian and invited Herbert to a small church near where he lived. That service there was a lecture and a slide presentation. The speaker showed a slide of a cartoon illustrating a man who had reached a fork in the road. Two signs revealed the destinations of the paths. One said "Heaven" and the other "Hell." In a flash of insight, which can only be described as the work of the Holy Spirit, Herbert comprehended that he was on the wrong road, the road to hell and at that moment, he surrendered his will and life to Jesus Christ.
After his conversion, Herbert Lockyer attended the Glasgow Bible Institute where he graduated, top of his class. He married Lily in 1912 and began his ministry with the Lanarkshire Evangelical Association. Throughout World War I, Herbert ministered to the troops at Perth, Scotland; after the war, he returned to Glasgow as an evangelist. In the years following, he pastored churches in Dundee and Hawick, Scotland.
Reverend Lockyer then accepted the call to be pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, and while he was there, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement. The Higher Life Movement had begun in 1875, emphasizing the significance of living in the fullness of the Spirit; this movement drew the attention of D. L. Moody and other prominent American evangelists. At a Higher Life conference, Lockyer met Dr. W. Mitchell and Dr. Stuart Holden, who were fellow Keswick leaders who were instrumental in bringing him to speak at the Moody Bible Institute 50th anniversary of their founding, in 1936. He was so well received that he began a ministry in the United States.
It was while Lockyer was at a conference in Montrose, Pennsylvania, that he met Pat and Bernie Zondervan, owners of Zondervan Publishing. The brothers were so overcome with Dr. Lockyer’s sermons that they asked for his permission to print and sell his messages for 25 cents each. The sermons were an instant success and later, the Zondervan brothers visited Herbert and asked him to write a book entitled All the Men in the Bible. Of course this was the beginning of the now famous All Bible Study Series comprised of 21 volumes, including such titles as: All the Miracles of the Bible, All the Promises of the Bible, and All the Women of the Bible.
Dr. Lockyer’s writing gifts allowed him to clearly explain the truths of Scripture and then helping the readers apply these precepts to their lives, have made these inspiring books international bestsellers. A man that seemed a natural for the theater, found himself called by God, to be a pastor, a Bible teacher and the author of numerous books, with which he touched the souls of millions of people. Herbert Lockyer also earned honorary doctoral degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London.
The last few years of Dr. Lockyer’s life, were spent in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his son the Rev. Herbert Lockyer, Jr., a Presbyterian minister. At the request of his father, Lockyer Jr edited many of his father's books in the "All" series. Lockyer Jr. would gather his father's writings providing any supplemental information that was needed from his own studies. Dr. Herbert Lockyer passed away on December 3, 1984; a true man of God, persistent, consistent and most definitely a Trailblazer of the Church.
Herbert Lockyer was born in 1886 and died in 1984.
Reviews - What do customers think about All The Doctrines Of The Bible?
Great Book Aug 12, 2005
This book is excellent in that it helps Christians understand the basis of their faith. It helps to describe the essential doctrines on which our faith stands. This book is also great for Sunday school. These doctrines should be taught early and often to our children so that they may not be swayed by liberal theology. The explanation of our premellinial existance and on dispensation are of utmost importance as most of the reformed Church holds these views because they are well documented in the Bible as Lockyer states. It is a shame that many of the old stand by evangelical denominations are being corrupted by liberals to the point where we can no longer call them Christian, excluding Baptists.
Good basic Bible doctrines book - nice place to start Jun 26, 2003
In 1964 Herbert Lockyer originally published "All the Doctrines of the Bible" and it has been in print ever since. While this is hardly all the doctrines that are found in the Bible by the various religious groups, it is the thirty most important doctrines that are held by pretty much all of the Christian doctrines.
The book starts with a brief introduction to how to study Christian doctrine. From there it starts into the doctrines of Divine Revelation, Divine Inspiration, God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, Angels, Satan and Demons, Man, the Covenants, Predestination, Sin, Salvation, Grace, Repentance, Regeneration, Substitution, Redemption, Reconciliation, Faith, Adoption, Assurance, Righteousness, Peace, Sanctification, Christian Ethics, Eternal Security, Prayer, the Church, and Last Things.
For each doctrine the chapter clearly defines it and follows with the development of the doctrine using specific Bible verse references. On some matters, such as baptism, it provides thoughts of other great thinkers of the past. This is an excellent book for the young Christian who wants to learn the basis for common Christian doctrine and a recommended read.

A Good Starter Book, But Be Careful Oct 25, 2000
Here is a book that is excellent for one wanting to start studying more in depth the MANY doctrines of the Bible. We often forget how many major doctrines there are. I personally have found approximately 50 doctrines in the Bible related to salvation alone. Mr. Lockyer does a great job and will get you started, expanding your mind beyond the "milk" theology in which so many Christians remain. But be careful. He bought into the very young doctrines of premillennialism and dispensationalism, so you will find his doctrinal explanations as related to eschatology to be "newspaper" theology rather than biblical theology.
