About the Author
Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981), minister of Westminster Chapel in London for 30 years, was one of the foremost preachers of his day. His many books have brought profound spiritual encouragement to millions around the world.
Be devoted to God with your heart and your mind. Do you look to devotional books for guidance as you seek to focus your heart on the Lord each day? If you do, you know that too often devotional material fails to engage the mind in addition to the heart. Touching stories replace the very source of lasting encouragement and strength we need each day-the truth of the Word of God. But this is never true of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones's writing. Walking with God Day by Day offers brief daily devotionals that engage the mind and the heart. You will not just find spiritual nourishment in its pages; you will learn about God and the great themes of the Bible. Robert Backhouse has compiled excerpts from choice passages in the writings of Dr. Lloyd-Jones according to monthly themes. By reading this devotional, you will grow in your understanding of God and learn to apply the truth of His Word day by day.
Finding helps for our devotional time can be a challenge. Often, many of them merely offer a "Daily Crumb" rather then a satisfying meal of Scripture. This new collection of the late Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones writings, arranged into 365 daily readings, seeks to offer devotional material that engages the mind in addition to the heart. One feature I especially like in their arrangement is that each month has a theme, such as "New Life in the Spirit" (January) or "Knowing and Serving God" (August). I have enjoyed the continuity and thematic thinking that this enables the reader to do. One other feature that I enjoy is that each excerpt lists the book and page numbers from which it was taken, something that many collections like this fail to do. This enables a person who is interested in reading more on a given topic, to know where to find it!
All in all, editor Robert Backhouse has provided a great service in compiling these many words of wisdom, challenge, and devotion from Lloyd-Jones into a useful resource for believers today. Try it and see how it can help you 'glorify God and enjoy Him forever'.
