The Glory of Christ, John Owen

Monthly Book Suggestion October 2014Banner of Truth Trust hit another home run when it updated the language and reprinted John Owen’s masterful work The Glory of Christ. Written near the end of his life, Owen penned this work from his own personal meditations on his Savior. Looking upon Christ from various theological angles, the author beckons the reader to see Jesus as being precious to the soul. Throughout each chapter he draws us closer to Christ so that we might gaze upon His glory by faith in the confident hope that, one day, we will gaze upon Him by sight. Having used this book as a devotional, I found it to be like cold water to a thirsty soul. I encourage anyone to read this short work (168 pages) so that by viewing the glory of Christ, He might “revive our souls and cause our spiritual lives to flourish and thrive.”
