The incarnation of God’s son is a sheer wonder. Mary responded to the message from the angel about the forthcoming birth of her Savior, with a beautiful song of praise. Her words were profoundly deep and with such feeling – truly an experience which affected her inner being. She praised God for His character and for keeping His promises even when circumstances seem to contradict the coming of the long awaited Messiah.
In Magnify the Lord Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones meditates on Mary’s song of praise and applies it to our lives. He looks at how God deals with us and at our response to God. We find that the new birth is all of God and nothing of ourselves, yet He is ever gracious towards us. These meditations will provide excellent devotional reading in the days leading up to celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior.

About the Author:
Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was born in Wales. He was a dairyman’s assistant, a political enthusiast, debator, and chief clinical assistant to Sir Thomas Harder, the King of England’s Physician. But at the age of 27 he gave up a most promising medical career to become a preacher.
When a spiritual history of the 20th Century comes to be written, it will be bound to include mention not only of the far-reaching influence of Dr. Lloyd-Jones’ ministry at Westminster Chapel in London, England from 1938-68, but of the remarkable fact that his published volumes of expository sermons have had an unprecedented circulation for such material, selling in the millions of copies.

Praise for Magnify the Lord:
“If we will listen to her, and sing with her, we can grow to see the offspring of the woman in all his might and all his fragility, in his justice and in his mercy. This book will drive you to that Virgin’s Song-and beyond it, to the gospel, in ways you don’t expect by walking you through the tension between Bethlehem and Armageddon. In the end, I decided not to take a break from Revelation for Christmas. And it was the Magnificat that changed my mind, for many of the reasons the great Lloyd-Jones lays out with such clarity in this book. The Mother of our Lord set the tone when she sang of God’s mercy to his people, of his faithfulness to his covenant promises.”
