Item description for Romans: An Exposition of Chapters 3.20-4.25 Atonement and Justification (Romans Series) by Martyn Lloyd-Jones...
Overview Dr. Lloyd-Jones has long been well known for his detailed verse by verse exposition of passages of the Bible, and nowhere is this method seen to better advantage than in his treatment of the Epistle to the Romans. His series on this, possibly the grandest of all the Epistles, was first preached on Friday evenings at Westminster Chapel, London, from October 1955 to March 1968, and will go down in history as a spiritual landmark of the mid-twentieth century. Several volumes of these sermons are now planned by the publishers. This the first volume to appear covers Chapter 3, verse 20 to the end of Chapter 4. In it the preacher moves step by step through the massive reasoning of the Apostle Paul on atonement and justification, yet the detail of the exposition does not stand in the way of a clear view of the whole, and the reader is constantly shown how every section fits into the theme of God's complete plan of salvation. The Epistle to the Romans has a deep significance for the present day, and the sermon form with its direct address to the listener makes each exposition both clear and gripping.

Reviews - What do customers think about Romans: An Exposition of Chapters 3.20-4.25 Atonement and Justification (Romans Series)?
Lloyd Jones has it right Mar 15, 2006
Dr. Jones has a unique abiltiy to get to the meaning of difficult issues found in the doctrines of Atonement, Justification, Justification by Faith and Righteousness. When a someone understands Romans, they know what it means to be a Christian. We have used the book in a bible study and it has deepened everyone's knowledge and faith in Christ. This book would be great for those who are somewhat fuzzy about what it means to be a Christian.
Perhaps the greatest Christian classic of the 20th century! Oct 9, 2004
First published in 1970, this collection of 17 Bible studies on Romans 3:24 through 4:25 was first preached at London's Westiminster Chapel in 1957. Welsh teacher and evangelist Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones expounds the text (although he uses the King James Bible, he is in fact basing his remarks on the Greek original) not only verse-by-verse, but word-by-word, extracting all the deep theological meaning and also all the wonderfully edifying spiritual truth from these difficult, but most rewarding verses. In the first half of the book Lloyd-Jones takes the reader through Paul's teaching on atonement, redemption and justification, clearly explaining what the Apostle meant, examining and comparing parallel passages, quoting support from evangelical theologians (including from some of the 'Puritans' of the 17th century) and refuting the 'modernistic' views of certain 20th century theologians, of whom C. H. Dodd seems to come off worst. But Lloyd-Jones wouldn't have been Lloyd-Jones if he hadn't made sure that all this theological 'meat' had not been seasoned with plenty of practical application. And it is this practical aspect which dominates the second half of the book, where Lloyd-Jones expounds Romans 4, considering it first and foremost to consist of illustrations of what it means to live the life of faith as a person justified before God. This leads to some superb teaching on faith in connection with Abraham and how he believed God for a son despite being himself impotent and Sarah beyond the age of childbearing: here is genuine miracle-working faith in God's promises, the kind of faith that brings forth a whole supernatural people of God!
Perhaps what I have written sounds difficult. Let me say that reading Lloyd-Jones is not difficult, although one should take one's time over his words and mull them over before reading on. Personally, I have read this book any number of times and consider it to be perhaps the greatest Christian classic of the 20th century. It certainly helped me to understand the very basics of my faith, giving me the kind of 'firm foundation' which every Christian needs in time of trial. Very highly recommended indeed!
