Any of God's humans might take advantage of a interpreting 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 remedy of theology from others i've got tried to learn is the truth that the writer provides his fabric as a pastor to a congregation instead of as a textbook to a seminary classification. 5 stars for the 1st volumes.
I am totally optimistic quantity 3 is every piece pretty much as good because the first , until you're a dispensationalist. no longer that he does not make a few telling issues. i used to be struck difficult by means of the truth that the doctrine of the rapture of the church had now not existed earlier than 1830 and got here into being now not because the results of cautious religious study and exegesis yet because the results of a 'revelation' at a prophecy convention. i used to be considering there rather could be whatever to his tuition of eschatology until eventually he begun a presentation of the e-book of Revelation. it is not that i believe Dr. Lloyd-Jones is lifeless mistaken; i used to be so stressed via the spiritualizing of totally every thing that I simply gave up all wish of realizing any prophecy less than his system.
Having stated that, i'm happy i purchased the books; i'll preserve them and consult with them usually and suggest them to others each probability i am getting.
