A charitable trust which broadcasts the audio sermons of the late Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones recently celebrated almost 20 million hits online.

Tim Keller, who died earlier this year, said: “Dr Lloyd-Jones’ preaching was based on deep reading and scholarship, yet it was accessible to everyone. It was close, instructive Bible exposition, yet it stirred the affections and changed the heart.”

Greg Jones, President of the Martyn Lloyd-Jones Trust said: “Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones was used mightily by God during his ministry and his recorded sermons are treasures for the church today. Many believers are unaware of the continued existence of these sermons. Our goal is to keep sharing them as widely as possible so that more people from across the world can hear the life-changing message of the forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus Christ via Dr Lloyd-Jones’ sermons.”

Born in Cardiff, many believe he is one of the most influential preachers of the 20th century. He was touted to be the next King’s physician, but rather he felt called to be a ‘physician of the soul’ and worked as the pastor of Westminster Chapel from 1939-1968 after ministering at Port Talbot for over a decade.

Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor at Parkside Church in Cleveland, said: “Dr Lloyd-Jones was riveting to listen to, he didn’t carry people with the force of his personality, but with the force of his conviction. He was the embodiment of the belief that there was no greater privilege than to serve God, and that there was no ideal place to serve God, except the place he set you down. He was very clever, but his intellect did not intrude upon his preaching, his humility was the key to his sense of authority.”

The sermons are available free via the Trust’s website, app and YouTube channel.
