Some Christians emphasize doctrine, others experience. Martyn
Lloyd-Jones emphasized both. Marrying a Reformed understanding of biblical
theology to a passionate desire for a deeper experience of God, he urged
all Christians to seek baptism with the Holy Spirit. This he viewed as a
direct sealing of the assurance of God’s love to a believer’s consciousness
which results in a heightened awareness of God, brings joy to worship, and
adds a new dimension to the church’s witness.
This book examines the sources of Dr Lloyd-Jones’s teaching in the writings
of the Puritans and later theologians such as Jonathan Edwards, and
compares it with others views of the work of the Holy Spirit which are
currently held. It is an important contribution to the ongoing debate.
