Book Review of
The Glory of Christ
This unabridged version of “The Glory of Christ”, written by John Owen and published in 1684, is considered by many as one of the most important monumental works in Christian history.
I read John Owens The Glory of Christ because I have seen many things about John Owen and have heard a lot of people talk about his writings. I didn’t know where to start when it came to his books, so I started with The Glory of Christ. Owen is a little hard to read. It probably had to do with the edition of the book that I read and with him being an older writer. I did learn a lot. He had some great thoughts that he backed up well once you got to the point.
I doubt that this was the best one for me to start with. I can see why people recommend him and take quotes from him as he has a lot of good ones. But if you read John Owen be prepared for some deep reading that takes time.
I will say thought that now that I have read one of his books, I want to read more just to see what else he has to say.
