One of the most moving passages in the Bible is Jesus' High-Priestly prayer for His own in John 17, in which our Lord turns over His mission to His disciples. Here also unfold the majestic themes of our assurance of salvation, our union with Him, and His loving care for all who believe in Him.

When you are discouraged, uncertain, or anxious, you can turn to this passage for comfort and reassurance--and find that the Lord Jesus Christ has already claimed you as His own. Before you were born, before the world was made, those who belong to Him were destined for an eternal inheritance.

In this masterful, verse-by-verse exposition of our Savior's prayer--originally four books and now brought together in one volume--the great preacher and Bible teacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones gleans timeless truths of the faith for Christians today. With rare insight and power, Dr. Lloyd-Jones lays before us the richness, the depth, the wonder--and the assurance--of God's plan of salvation and sanctification.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was born in Wales. He was a dairyman's assistant, a political enthusiast, debater, and chief clinical assistant to Sir Thomas Harder, the King's Physician. But at the age of 27 he gave up a most promising medical career to become a preacher. He had a far-reaching influence through his ministry at Westminster Chapel in London, England from 1938-68. His published works have had an unprecedented circulation, selling in millions of copies.
