Big Wig John Owen

John Owen is described as a heavy writer with complex thoughts, but his contribution to Christian theology and devotion is unrivaled. Translation--man up, do the work, and be blessed! Our reading will be from volume one of his sixteen volumes which is The Glory of Christ. Read chapter two, take his concluding devotional exhortations to heart, and come ready for some good discussion Tuesday. In good puritan brevity, chapter two is called "The glory of the person of Christ, as the only representative of God unto the church." Here is a helpful time-line worth checking out.
