The Book of Romans
Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones’s sermon series on the book of Romans were preached to the congregation at Westminster Chapel in the heart of central London on Friday evenings between October 1955 to March 1968. These sermons were preached from the beginning of October until the end of May each year, with breaks being taken for Christmas and Easter. Dr Lloyd-Jones began his ministry at Westminster Chapel in 1938, and his ministry there lasted for thirty years until his retirement in 1968. As such, his Romans sermon series came at the end of his preaching career. Spanning 366 sermons over twelve years, his series on the book of Romans is the longest expositional series Dr Lloyd-Jones ever did. Dr Lloyd-Jones regarded the book of Romans as the ‘first in importance’ among the New Testament epistles. Indeed, it is likely that Dr Lloyd-Jones saw his exposition of the book of Romans as his most important work, as evidenced by the fact that he chose his Romans sermons as the first of his many sermons to be published following his retirement. His official biographer Iain Murray writes; Many hundreds of unrevised manuscript copies of sermons thus existed by 1968, of which, for reasons already noted, comparatively few had appeared in print. He did not hesitate in choosing to put his Romans sermons first for publication in book form, to be followed by those on Ephesians. Dr Lloyd-Jones’s Romans sermons include in depth exposition of passages such as Romans 5:1-5, Romans 8:28, , Romans 8:31-39, Romans 12, Romans 12:9-21, Romans 12:1-2. His hope for this Romans sermon series was that they will ‘not only help Christian people to understand more clearly the great doctrines of our Faith, but that they will also fill them with a joy "unspeakable and full of glory" and bring them into a condition in which they will be "Lost in wonder, love, and praise"’.

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones is primarily known today as a preacher of expository sermons from the books of the Old Testament and New Testament. However, according to Dr. Lloyd-Jones’s wife Bethan, this was not the work that characterized him. That work was evangelism. She once remarked that "no-one will understand my husband who does not know that he was first of all a man of prayer and then an evangelist". Indeed, many of Dr Lloyd-Jones’s evangelistic sermons were sermons from the Old Testament. Most of these sermons were not recorded, however the Old Testament sermons below were preserved in this series of 133 sermons across 15 books of the Old Testament.

In 1954, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preached on a subject that few other preachers cover: sermons on spiritual depression. Dr. Lloyd-Jones veered from his customary practice of preaching through books of the Bible verse by verse in order to preach this sermon series. The origin of the series is referenced by Iain Murray in the second volume of his authorized biography of Dr Lloyd-Jones, "The Fight of Faith": "I got up one morning, washed and was still half-dressed when quite suddenly that verse came to me, ‘Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God...’ There and then some seven or eight skeletons of sermons came to my mind on the subject of Spiritual Depression. I rushed down to my study to put them on paper and so powerful was the impression that I knew I had to do this series before Ephesians. I am not surprised it was so used. It was a pure gift." (Iain H. Murray, The Fight of Faith, Edinburgh, Banner of Truth, 1990, p. 259) This essential collection of 24 sermons on depression was the result. Delivered in a post-war world of unrest and grief, this extremely helpful collection of sermons on depression, anxiety, and mental health by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones are both as timeless as its topic and the trust we can place in Jesus to renew our spirits.
