One of the greatest privileges I have is to serve as a trustee for the Martyn Lloyd-Jones Trust. Recently, the MLJ Trust has issued The Legacy Collection. Here's more information:
Some of the most significant sermons in 20th Century Evangelical Christendom were preached by Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones during the nearly 30 year period when he was Minister of Westminster Chapel, London. Thankfully, in the Lords providence, the majority of those sermons were recorded on reel-to-reel tape and then carefully archived.
Now, with the benefit of modern technology, the Martyn Lloyd-Jones Recordings Trust has been able to digitally restore and improve the original recordings of some 1,600 sermons and make them available in CD and MP3 format. The twelve albums which comprise the Legacy Collection are those major series of sermons for which Dr Lloyd-Jones rightly became famous and the reason why so many people flocked to Westminster Chapel.
In contrast to the present day in which many preachers seem only able to offer the spiritual equivalent of a quick-fi x ready meal which inevitably leaves their listeners hungry and malnourished, the sermons of the Legacy Collection contain substantial food for the soul which is not only satisfying, but when applied to the heart, mind and will by the Holy Spirit, produces growth, vigour and authentic discipleship.
This unique collection should feature in the library of all Christians who are serious about gaining a better understanding of Gods Word and its application to all of lifes situations. This is indeed a precious inheritance that has been preserved for the blessing of Believers in the 21st Century.
