Overview


This enduring collection of twenty-one sermons by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, each originally delivered at Westminster Chapel in London, carefully and compassionately analyzes an undeniable feature of modern society from which Christians have not escaped — spiritual depression.

"Christian people," writes Lloyd-Jones, "too often seem to be perpetually in the doldrums and too often give this appearance of unhappiness and of lack of freedom and absence of joy. There is no question at all but that this is the main reason why large numbers of people have ceased to be interested in Christianity."

Believing the Christian joy was one of the most potent factors in the spread of Christianity in the early centuries, Lloyd-Jones not only lays bare the causes that have robbed many Christians of spiritual vitality but also points the way to the cure that is found through the mind and spirit of Christ.

What a wonderful book. It is a scriptural, practical, and encouraging discussion of why a Christian is not happy and steps to take. I used each chapter as a devotion - taking time that day to reflect on it. I was convicted while reading and also by my behavior and mood during the month I spent reading it. Lloyd-Jones never failed to tell it how it is and encourage me to run to Christ. The first chapter has a much-quoted (lately at least) bit about why we must talk to ourselves, instead of just letting our self talk to us. "You have to take yourself in hand." Must of the book is about controlling our thoughts, or rather, understanding the need to not let our thoughts and emotions control us. One part that became convicting this month was in chapter 10"It is very wrong for a Christian ever to be in such a condition. I do not care what the circumstances may be, the Christian should never be agitated, the Christian should never be beside himself, the Christian should never be at his wit¿s end, the Christian should never be in a condition in which he has lost control of himself"Faith is a refusal to panic. Faith is unbelief kept quiet, kept down.A wonderful book, one I will return to many times and one I heartily recommend to anyone looking to grow in their walk with Christ.
