365 daily readings from one of the greatest theologians of the Puritan movement
John Owen (1616–1683) was one of the best known and most prolific English church leaders of the 17th Century. His writings have been a challenge and encouragement to believers throughout the centuries since and have influenced many leaders in the church today. In this attractively bound faux leather book, Lee Gatiss has selected a reading from John Owen’s writings for each day of the year. Theologically sharp, these readings will help you to see the majesty of God anew.
Includes some extracts from Owen that are not currently in print anywhere else, and freshly translations of his Latin works. Each reading is just a page long but is packed with theological insight. Spending a little time with this giant of the faith every day will help you to delight in the joy of the gospel again.
Amongst the best known of the Puritans, John Owen (1616-1683) was a profound and thought provoking pastor-theologian. His writings continue to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.
Dr. Lee Gatiss is the Director of Church Society, Editor of the NIV Proclamation Bible, and a Lecturer in Church History at Union School of Theology. He lives in Cambridge, UK.
"I pray these bite–sized morsels of devotions on the Word with John Owen as commentator, will help believers not only understand Owen, but through him, to know the Lord." - Daniel R. Hyde, Oceanside United Reformed Church, Oceanside, California
"What a splendid idea! The abundant riches of John Owen’s writings … in a form that is accessible and easy to absorb." - Simonetta Carr, Author
"It’s easy for readers to feel intimidated by the works of England’s greatest puritan theologian. But this new book shows how much of Owen’s writing has a devotional purpose and, in daily readings of two or three paragraphs, allows readers to build theological stamina over time." - Crawford Gribben, Professor of history, Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland
"Lee Gatiss has done us a great service in producing an accessible collection of bite–size chunks of the rich diet offered by Owen. By tracking Owen’s life this book provides a great introduction to Owen and his thought. But best of all it enables us to marvel afresh at our glorious Saviour." - Tim Chester, Author and senior faculty member, Crosslands Training
