In this rare video interview of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the eminent doctor-turned-preacher answers questions about his success as a preacher, his views on Fundamentalism, and why his preaching appealed to young people. I was particularly struck by his answer to the question, “What do you believe would make a successful preacher?” Dr. Lloyd-Jones replied, “I really was never concerned about that. My concern was with what needed to be preached. And it was with this burning conviction as to the message needed that drove me on.” As a preacher, I need to lose my obsession with methods and “success,” and become consumed with the only message that truly matters: Christ and him crucified (1 Cor. 2:2).

Go to position 2:40 for the part about success as a preacher.
