I would argue that the greatest preacher-teacher of the English speaking world throughout history was almost certainly Martyn Lloyd-Jones. Today to celebrate 30 years of ministry, the trust set up to distribute originally his tapes, then CDs then finally MP3s have taken a bold radical step. Every one of his sermons is now available to download for free. This is incredible news as it means that missionaries the world over, pastors who can hear English, and you and I can benefit from this Spirit-annointed, theologically rich, Bible-based expositional preaching. So, I urge you to go over to the site, sign up as a free member, and get listening! O, and if you like what you hear, do consider making a donation.

More on the background of this momentous decision is available here:
“This is a decision that the UK Board has been wrestling with for a long time, because by moving away from the sale of MP3 discs (and tapes before that), which has kept the Recordings Trust in existence for 30 years in God’s grace, they will become completely dependent (as we are in the United States MLJ Trust ministry), on the voluntary donations of brothers and sisters who feel called to support the ministry while downloading sermons.
In the end, however, and after much prayer and discussion, our brothers in the UK felt that as the world of low-cost distribution through the internet was now far reaching enough that most people around the world (even in developing countries) can gain access to this ministry through a computer, and as many other ministries have had a positive experience shifting to a voluntary donation approach to on-line sermons, they felt (as we do) that this change might be in accordance with God’s will.
While there is some nervousness about such a big change, it our our most earnest hope, on both sides of the Atlantic, that this announcement will help us to fulfill the objective that has fueled this ministry since its inception 30 years ago: To preserve, and make as widely available as possible, the doctrinal exposition of God’s word by the late Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, a man who could never quite believe how God had used him for the benefit of the Gospel over his long ministry in the pulpit of Westminster Chapel.”
