About Martyn Lloyd-Jones

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899–1981) is recognized as one of the last century’s most gifted preachers and writers. Lloyd-Jones was influential in the Reformed wing of the British evangelical movement in the twentieth century.

Lloyd-Jones first studied medicine, but left that field and went to Wales in 1927 to follow his calling to preach. He became the minister of a Welsh Presbyterian Church in Abervon, South Wales where he ministered for a decade.

In 1929, Lloyd-Jones went to London where he was appointed the associate pastor of Westminster Chapel working alongside G. Campbell Morgan. This ministry lasted for 30 years until Lloyd-Jones retired in 1968. He is the author of several books and commentaries, including Exposition of Ephesians, the Studies in the Book of Acts series, and Seeking the Face of God.
