‘….one of the annual highlights in the life and ministry of Dr D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones was the Ministers’ Conference which was held for much of that period in Bala … We are indebted to Dr Eryl Davies for this pioneer overview and analysis of the Conference’s context, development and significance, which draws not only on his extensive research, but also on his first-hand experience of this crucial – if controversial – Conference.”
Professor E. Wyn James, School of Welsh, Cardiff University
Dr. Eryl Davies has made a major contribution to the history of Evangelical Christianity in Britain with his clearly written, interesting, and scholarly book on Dr. Lloyd-Jones and the yearly ministerial conference in Bala …. I was there in the mid-nineties …. Dr. Davies addresses major issues faced by evangelicals in our secularized West; that is why this book will have relevance and influence far beyond Wales, and even into China and Africa. I delight in his …. call for sound theology, biblical preaching and fervent prayer. I shall recommend it to my classes.

In this absorbing study, Dr Eryl Davies has provided us with a vivid insight into the role played by the great preacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones in developing evangelical thought and practice in post-War Wales …. This volume affords a fascinating glimpse into the stresses as well as the achievements of twentieth and twenty first century Welsh evangelicalism. It is an admirable contribution to our understanding of recent Christian history in our land.
