At a time when the nations of Europe were engaged in fierce conflict, one of the twentieth century's most influential pastors taught his congregation about the threat of persecution and suffering and how it should be viewed. When the Second World War ended in 1945, D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones sought to refocus the people on the basics of the faith with a series of messages entitled, "What is a Christian?" based on Romans 8.
Since the rise of terrorism in the twenty-first century, these previously unpublished sermons have become startlingly relevant to what is happening in our own times. Pastors will especially appreciate this book as it speaks directly to our current world political situation and represents models of what preaching should be - exposition with timely application. All readers will find hope, encouragement, and a balanced view of how Christians should live during an "age of terror."
