Meditations on the Glory of Christ was the last of many books that Owen wrote. He died as it was being printed in 1683. It was written, he tells us, for the exercise of his own mind when weakness, weariness and the near approaches of death were calling him away from this earth. As Owen says: A continual view of the glory of Christ will have the blessed effect of changing us more and more into the likeness of Christ. Perhaps other ways and means have failed to make us Christ-like. Let us put this way to the test.… (mer)

I love to start my year with a Puritan Paperback, and this year's choice didn't disappoint. Of course it didn't--it was John Owen!

Wow. Owen maybe doesn't have the emotional resonance of Samuel Rutherford or isn't as pithily quotable as Richard Sibbes (both of whom I adore), but he illuminates the role of Christian teaching in our daily walk more beautifully than anyone I've read. Particularly the importance of a right understanding of the person of Christ, and how meditating on those glories fuels our spiritual life.

This (abridged) work is especially good on Christ's two natures, the union of Christ with the church and with individual believers, Christ's ultimate restoration of all things, and the differences between faith and eventual heavenly sight (SO helpful). Sprinkled throughout are little exhortations and practical helps. It's challenging and comforting in equal measure.

I really, really recommend this readable little volume. Savor it. ( )

John Owen is definitely my favorite Theologian. The Glory of Christ made me to think deeply of his riches, lost in divine moments. I was in Fiji, reading from Beachcomber Island. The creation reflected richly of his Glory. Owen repeatedly asks every Christian to meditate on Christ's glory, think of divine things often. I recommend this to every Christian.
