In 1951, with the Second World War not long over and the menace of the Cold War generating anxiety in the West, Martyn Lloyd-Jones preached eight sermons on John 14:1-12 at Westminister Chapel in London. These sermons, presented here in one volume, were intended to comfort, strengthen, and build up Christians in their "most holy faith" and to bring unbelievers to a knowled

As always Lloyd-Jones remains logical, assuring, comforting and Gospel Driving. In this small series on John 14, MLJ brings us back to understanding who Jesus is and what Jesus teaches. Just after WWII and the fears of the Cold War looming over his congregations hearts, the Doctor apples the Gospel to comfort the faith of his listeners without compromising the Gospel. Anything of MLJ is worth reading.

This is classic Lloyd-Jones. It is filled with clear explanation of the text (John 14) and practical application for the reader. I read this book specifically for my edification and was not disappointed. His insights into the troubled hearts of people helped tremendously.

One quip that I have with many of Lloyd-Jones' books is that they are his sermons rather than his writing. It makes the application excellent, but readability is lost or convoluted at times.

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled is a collection of sermons preached by Martyn Lloyd-Jones in 1951 in London. The sermon collection focuses on, as you might have already guessed, on John 14. The sermons go verse by verse through the first half of the fourteenth chapter. They include, "Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled," "Believe in God," "Believe Also In Me," "In My Father's House," "I Go To Prepare A Place For You," "I Will Come Again, and Receive You," "I Am The Way, The Truth, and the Life," and " ...more

Sometimes we get it all wrong when we read Scripture. We translate sentences through a syrupy grid of sentimentality (“Oh, that’s so comforting . . .”), when what we are looking at is a command. Do this.

Thus begins sermon number one of Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled, a compilation of eight sermons preached by Martin Lloyd Jones in 1951 when Cold War angst and post WWII gloom hung in the air of Great Britain as thick as London fog. His musings on John 14 are no less relevant in today’s milieu of

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.4 And you know the way to where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord,we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and ...more

This series of sermons, from John 14:1-12, was originally preached in 1951 at the close of World War 2, the second such global conflict within a generation’s time. To a world reeling from such catastrophic loss and violence, the need for peace and a quiet heart was paramount. Lloyd-Jones, in these messages, explains why true peace isn’t something that can be found through this world’s methods and demonstrates how Christ alone can grant a quiet heart.

I found this to be a thoroughly encouraging and thoughtful exposition to John 14. Lloyd - Jones nails the idea of the Gospel giving the true source of a quiet heart amidst trials and suffering. great read!

This was classic Lloyd Jones, hitting on assurance of salvation, comfort in God as father, and mostly about seeing life here on earth in light of eternity with God. Such an encouraging read. It was one of the shorter Lloyd Jones books but one of my favorites.

like his 'spiritual depression,' Lloyd Jones seems to apply the Bible well to dark days....

Reading again with a few friends. It was helpful the first time, but it is even sweeter to discuss.
