An “Essential” Update

The Essential Owen has a new look. It just seemed a little too cold, so I tried to warm it up a bit. Let me know what you think. Feedback is always welcomed and appreciated!

And now there is a Share A Quote page that will serve as a place to share any quotes (by John Owen, of course) that you have come across. So, if you have any Owen quotes, dust ’em, share ’em, and I promise, I’ll take good care of ’em. OK, that was pretty corny.

Also, I have just started gleaning quotes from Owen’s book, Of Communion With God found in volume 2 of his Works. The full title is as follows. (Puritan titles were often never concise)

OF
COMMUNION
WITH
GOD THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST,
EACH PERSON DISTINCTLY,
IN LOVE, GRACE, AND CONSOLATION;
OR
THE SAINTS’ FELLOWSHIP WITH THE FATHER, SON, AND
HOLY GHOST UNFOLDED.

This is taken from the preface to the “Christian Reader,”

The design of the whole treatise thou wilt find, Christian reader, in the first chapters of the first part; and I shall not detain thee here with the perusal of any thing which in its proper place will offer itself unto thee: know only, that the whole of it hath been recommended to the grace of God in many supplications, for its usefulness unto them that are interested in the good things mentioned therein.
J. 0.

Of Communion With God is a must read. If you would like to download or read a PDF version of this book click here. Volume 2 can be purchased here.
