This is vol 2 of Iain Murray’s biography of the late, great preacher (see review of vol 1 here.) This is a big volume – 850 pages, which means it is in-depth. There is a lot of quotations from ML-J’s sermons, letters and correspondence. Murray is thorough in his treatment of ML-J which means the reader needs to have some patience! But thats OK, because ultimately, what Murray does well, is paint a wonderful picture, not of a perfect man, or even a great man, but of a man who gave his life in service to God; who loved God and his word passionately; and who stood up for God’s truth publically.
For me, this was really an inspired read for me.
