Classic work on the glory of Christ
Original text with new layout
15th century writer with 21st century relevance
To see the glory of Christ is one of the greatest privileges that a Christian can enjoy. Anyone who does not see his glory in this world, will not see his glory in heaven, and no one should look for anything in heaven that he has not experienced in this life. Read this book, and may God by his Word and Spirit give you such a sense of his uncreated glory, blazing forth in Christ, that you will be satisfied and filled with joy. This is the orginal text with a new layout and is fully subtitled which makes it more accessible to a new generation of readers.
John Owen (1616–1683), amongst the best known of the Puritans, was an English Puritan who served as vice-chancellor of Oxford University and pastor of congregations in Coggeshall and London. His writings continue to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.
"I'm here today, absolutely certain that the subject we ought to think about together is the glory of Christ. And John Owen's book on the Glory of Christ is the classic writing on that subject. ...I commend that book to you very warmly and anything that I've learned of the Glory of Christ you will find elaborated considerably there." - Eric Alexander, Conference speaker and formerly minister St George's Tron, Glasgow for 20 years
"'Take time to read this book. Savour each page. Appreciate the depths of what Owen says. Allow yourself to be analysed, searched, exposed, deconstructed, edified, enlightened, engraced, and refocused on the glory of Jesus Christ.'" - Sinclair B. Ferguson, Associate Preacher, St Peter's Free Church, Dundee, Scotland
"This beautifully produced reprint, with translations of Owen's Latin by Angus Morrison and a summary introduction by Sinclair Ferguson is an honour to its publishers. With key passages highlighted, unfamiliar terms explained, and plenty of 'light' between headed paragraphs, it is a joy to read. Its contents are beyond recommendation. The divine glory of our Saviour leaves us 'lost in wonder, love and praise.'" - Peace and Truth
