Item description for Out of the Depths: Restoring Fellowship with God by Martyn Lloyd-Jones & Lane T. Dennis...
Overview Ignore repentance, and you'll never become a Christian. Ignore repentance as a Christian, and you'll never know real salvation, holiness, freedom, or joy. In this classic study of Psalm 51, reprints of four sermons preached in October 1949, Lloyd-Jones explores David's spiritual agony over his sin with Bathsheba and reveals the biblical journey towards a truly repentant heart: from the Holy Spirit's conviction and the sinner's confession, to God's cleansing, deliverance, and renewal.
Can we receive salvation from God unless we know what it is to repent? Is it possible for a person to be a Christian without true repentance?
For the answers to such thought-provoking questions, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones turns readers to Psalm 51, which is perhaps the classic statement on repentance in all of Scripture. It not only models the process involved in receiving salvation and forgiveness for sins--from the Holy Spirit's conviction and the sinner's confession to God's cleansing and renewal--but draws a profile of the truly repentant heart.
"There are certain things that we must realize, we must grasp, we must believe before salvation can be ours], and the first of these is repentance.... Without repentance there is no knowledge of salvation, there is no experience of salvation. It is an essential step. It is the first step."
This moving study gives readers a fuller understanding of the importance of repentance both for the unsaved and for Christians. Enlightening and practical, Out of the Depths is necessary reading for the earnest seeker who wants to take that first step on the road to salvation, and for the troubled Christian desiring to find again the path to a restore relationship with God.

This is an exposition of Psalm 51 from the greatest Biblical expositor of the 20th century.If anyone needs certainty about whether the Lord has begun His work of grace in their soul, MLJ provides the true meaning of repentence, not the perfectionism or be "good and try harder" that is out there.
four sermons preached by Lloyd-Jones on Repentance Dec 7, 2001
The book is a collection of four sermons preached by Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones at Westminster Chapel in London in 1949. All four sermons are based on Psalm 51.
I highly recommend this book. Please understand that I love to read books on the doctrine of repentance. It is not a difficult read.
Here are a couple of quotes-
'Do you feel God would be dealing unfairly with you if you ever found yourself in hell? If you do you have not repented. I would emphasize that the test of repentance is this, that a man having looked at himself and his own heart and life, says to himself: "I deserve nothing but hell, and if God sends me there I haven't a single complaint to make. I deserve nothing better!" '
"Repentance means that you realize that you are a guilty, vile sinner in the presence of God, that you deserve the wrath and punishment of God, that you are hell-bound. It means that you begin to realize that this thing called sin is in you and that you long to get rid of it and that you turn your back on it in very shape and form. You renounce the world whatever the cost, the world in its mind and outlook as well as its practices, and you deny yourself and take up the cross and go after Christ. Your nearest and dearest and the whole world may call you a fool or say you have religious mania, you may have to suffer financially, but it makes no difference. That is repentance."
