Around the Web

In 1973 D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones wrote to a 'young preacher':

'With regard to books that have meant a great deal to me, I think I would have to put at the very top of my list the works of Jonathan Edwards.'

Iain Murray, D. Martyn Lloyd Jones: The Fight of Faith 1939-1981 (Edinburgh, 1990), 420.

From Charles Wesley's hymn, Weary of Wandering from My God:
O Jesus, full of truth and grace
More full of grace than I of sin
Yet once again I seek Thy face:
Open Thine arms and take me in
And freely my backslidings heal
And love the faithless sinner still.

Cited by Sinclair Ferguson in an excellent three-part sermon series on the Prodigal Son.

Grace, mercy and peace be with you!
