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.

God's Promises Never Fail! Jan 11, 2007
I have several of Dr. Lockyer's books...all very well researched and comprehensive. "All the Promises of God" outdoes them all! Although the Bible itself holds a promise in every verse, this book helps me to look for specific promises, the Who/What/When/Where/Why for application, in an easy-to-read format. Love it!
Comprehensive, but organization could be better Jan 31, 2006
To be fair, this is an excellent compendium of all the promises of the bible. However, it suffers from a somewhat encyclopedic approach, that is, it is chock-full of information but not eminently readable. As a reference book, it suffers from the lack of a useful index. That leaves the only other alternative, which is to endeavour to read it cover to cover. The latter is not such a ridiculous thought; after all, the promises of God are so exciting that they should be fully devoured. Unfortunately, again, Lockyear's presentation of the material makes this a difficult task. It is a pity, because I am sure there are many, many gems to be found. The accompanying commentary is also sometimes very insightful. Alas, after this, I am still searching for a book that classifies all the promises in the Bible - all 8,810 of them - in a simple manner!
