    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 beheadings and suicide bombers, nor is his thesis: “The greatest need of men and women in this world is the need of what is called a quiet heart, a heart at leisure from itself.” He explores the various means that people use to achieve that goal and comes to a firm conclusion: “The claim of the gospel is not only that it can give us a quiet heart, but also that nothing else can do it.”

    Chapter 2 (i.e. sermon number two) sets forth Jesus’ own words as to just how that quiet heart comes about, and it, too, is a command: Believe in God; believe also in me. Sermons three through eight go on to reaffirm the foundations of Christian faith, asserting that the substance of what one believes about God does indeed matter, and that the calm and quiet heart that Jesus urges upon his disciples is not merely another anesthetic to numb the inevitable pain of life on a fallen planet.

    Although it is tempting to recommend this book as an evangelistic tool for unbelieving family and friends, it may well have a more immediate purpose within the household of faith. Jones gets to the core of biblical illiteracy and theological holes that plague the church:


    “If we want to know exactly what believing in Him means, we must take the entire New Testament, the Acts and the epistles and the light they cast upon Him as well as the detailed records we have concerning Him in the four Gospels.”

    We come to Christ through a cross, and the essence of this gospel will remain a mystery to those who neglect the Source of all Truth about God — the Bible.

    With the words of Hudson Taylor, Jones urges his readers to “hold on to the faithfulness of God,” (Mark 11:22). A right view of God will result in a right view of life, including realistic expectations for peace and happiness. Doubting Thomas becomes the hero of the day, his stumbling, groping statements of doubt setting the stage for Jesus’ clarifying words that resonate through the ages: “I am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me.”

    Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled is a road map for the seeker, and a homing device for the believer who has lost his way.
