A short book. A look at the book of Habakkuk and how to apply its lessons to your life.

It started off a bit slow for me but then improved as it progressed. I especially liked the author's take on the subjects of prophecy and prayer. I thought his prescription on what a Christian is to do when he is overcome and gripped with fear was insightful.

A couple of quotes -

"True prayer always includes the same three elements: humiliation, adoration, petition." Pg 63

This is a collection of superb sermons by Martyn Lloyd-Jones on the book of Habakkuk. He preached these sermons less than a decade after World War II and communism was the great fear of the West. MLJ masterfully contextualizes Habakkuk's situation with the impending Babylonian invasion of Judah to his day. It is still easy today to glean from his insights, but even more his sermons on Habakkuk stand as a model for preaching, specifically on the Old Testament.

Probably the only bible study you can find focused on the book of Habakkuk. The only reason why this doesn't get a 5 is because it is dated. (It was written in 1950's and there are many references to communism all over the place.) That being said, it was plenty to say about today and some lessons that I thought were very good to ruminate on.

This is a devotional look at the book of Habakkuk. Though it was written during the rise of Communism and often refers to it, the principles are still pertinent for Christians today. Lots of quotable material for such a short book.

I enjoyed this book. Not spectacular, but practical and interesting. Jones wrote the book following WWII and it gives you a feel for how the war had affected England.

The doctor's commentary on Habakkuk. Some of it's outdated (fear of Communism), but we can insert our modern day fears--ISIS-- and trusting God in the midst of it. Solid work. Quick read.

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. Lloyd-Jones was strongly opposed to Liberal Christianity, which had become a part of many Christian denominations; he regarded it as aberrant. ...more
