This book is based on a series of lectures delivered by British preacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones in 1941, as the world was engaged in another bloody war.

Using the second half of Romans 1 as his launching pad, Lloyd-Jones astutely takes flight into the biblical explanation for the condition of man—as well as Scripture’s remedy presented in the work of Jesus Christ.

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones was a Welsh Protestant minister, preacher and medical doctor who was influential in the Reformed wing of the British evangelical movement in the 20th century. For almost 30 years, he was the minister of Westminster Chapel in London.
