Any of God's humans might take advantage of a studying of the 1st volumes of this set. i discovered myself highlighting web page after web page and telling family and friends approximately each perception I encountered at each chance. What distinguishes this therapy of theology from others i've got tried to learn is the truth that the writer offers his fabric as a pastor to a congregation instead of as a textbook to a seminary category. 5 stars for the 1st volumes.
I am completely optimistic quantity 3 is each piece pretty much as good because the first , except you're a dispensationalist. now not that he does not make a few telling issues. i used to be struck not easy via the truth that the doctrine of the rapture of the church had no longer existed sooner than 1830 and got here into being now not because the results of cautious biblical studies and exegesis yet because the results of a 'revelation' at a prophecy convention. i used to be pondering there quite will be whatever to his tuition of eschatology till he started a presentation of the publication of Revelation. it isn't that i feel Dr. Lloyd-Jones is useless flawed; i used to be so pressured through the spiritualizing of completely every thing that I simply gave up all desire of realizing any prophecy below his system.
Having stated that, i'm completely satisfied i purchased the books; i'm going to continue them and consult with them usually and suggest them to others each likelihood i am getting.
