Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (DVD Review)

Anyone in the Reformed community will recognize many of the special commentators in the film

“This film was recently debuted at the Gospel Coalition conference in Orlando where many of the guests featured on the DVD documentary were speaking, preaching, and lecturing. I have to say, there was a great amount of excitement about the release of Logic on Fire.”

 

I had an opportunity to review the brand new full-length documentary entitled Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones over the weekend, and I can say that I recommend it wholeheartedly (with one reservation which I will discuss in a moment).

After viewing the film, I was motivated to climb back into the pulpit this coming Lord’s Day and preach the power of the Gospel afresh with the aid and help of the same Holy Spirit that filled the Doctor. If this film does anything, it helps to safeguard the power of preaching for another generation, especially in a time when preaching is lightly regarded.  Would that all young men today would preach with the same conviction that Lloyd-Jones had when he climbed into the pulpit of Westminster Chapel in London and opened his Authorized Version Bible!

This film was recently debuted at the Gospel Coalition conference in Orlando where many of the guests featured on the DVD documentary were speaking, preaching, and lecturing. I have to say, there was a great amount of excitement and buzz about the release of Logic on Fire.  I however, wanted to place the documentary in our church library permanently, so I ordered the DVD set and watched it from home with my wife, and I am glad that I did.

The set comes with three discs, the primary one consisting of the 1:40 long film looking at the life (but primarily the preaching ministry) of Lloyd-Jones. The set also comes with dozens of short extras and featurettes, as well as five post-cards suitable for framing. More that that, the set comes with small 120-page book containing background information, photographs, Lloyd-Jones’s retirement letter to his church, and even some printed sermons of Lloyd-Jones!

For around $39, I will say that this was a very good bargain.
