Few preachers have impacted Reformed evangelicalism like Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899–1981). Though he died 34 years ago, his writings and sermons continue to shape Christians today. Why does the ministry of this 20th-century British minister continue to resonate with us, and what is his relevance for church leaders today?

In this new 11-minute video, Tim Keller (TGC vice president and pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan) and Mark Dever (TGC Council member and pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.) tackle this question. Watch as the two evangelical leaders—who never knew Lloyd-Jones personally—talk about the enormous imprint he’s made on their preaching. In this wide-ranging conversation they consider whether Lloyd-Jones was Christ-centered, how to mix exposition with evangelism, what Lloyd-Jones got wrong in Preaching and Preachers, and more.
