Lloyd-Jones's Reformed doctrine of Spirit baptism

The Welsh minister Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was one of the most influential preachers of the twentieth century. His preaching was grounded in his view on the baptism of the Holy Spirit, but his pneumatology is often seen as a departure from his Reformed heritage.

In The Power of Revival, Dongjin Park explores how Lloyd-Jones's preaching was kindled by his distinctly Reformed view of Spirit baptism. By tracing Lloyd-Jones's writings and sources, Park shows how Lloyd-Jones's theology of Spirit baptism was less an embrace of charismatic and Pentecostal theology than a reappropriation of Puritan emphasis on experiential faith. Lloyd-Jones's revivalistic urgency, fueled by the Spirit's power to ignite preaching and holy living, found its spark in Calvinistic revivalism. The Power of Revival sheds light on Lloyd-Jones and Reformed theology and encourages readers to follow his example of relying on the Spirit.
Dongjin Park (PhD, McMaster Divinity College) is assistant professor of preaching at Sudo International University and assistant pastor at Jesus Vision Church, Seoul, South Korea.
