COMMUNION WITH THE TRIUNE GOD JOHN OWEN PDF

No subject more exposes the poverty of our lives before God than communion with God. We feel, or we should feel, totally out of our depth. However highly other Christians might esteem you, you know only too well how weakly, how inconstantly, how poorly, how coldly your heart engages in communion with God. Even as regenerate men and women, we are spiritual enigmas! Fellowship with God, living, personal, mind-engaging, heart-affecting fellowship, is held out to us as the consummating fruit of the gospel.

Among the most learned and active of the Puritans in seventeenth-century Europe, he was an erudite and accomplished theologian both in doctrine and practical theology.

About Editors Kelly M. Kapic is associate professor of biblical and theological studies at Covenant College in Georgia. Kapic and his wife have two children. Justin Taylor is vice president of book publishing and an associate publisher at Crossway. Gods self-revelation as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is not a teaching to be checked off and shelved away for doctrinal safekeeping. It is rather the ultimate basis of prayer, ethics, worship, and Christian life itself.

No one presents this truth more powerfully than the great Owen, and Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylors new edition of Communion with God gives us fresh access to his mind and heart. Timothy George Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University; Senior Editor, Christianity Today Owens exceptional work is partly a biblical and dogmatic treatise, partly a searching reflection on the practice of fellowship with the triune God.

This new edition deserves to claim many new readers for a classic of Protestant practical divinity. In a nuanced and biblically rich way, Owen develops the believers responsive engagement with God the Holy Trinity through study, worship, and meditation.

This is a remarkable book that will surprise and challenge. Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor have nicely rewrapped it, making it accessible to a new generation.

John Owen was one of the greatest expositors of this, and a new edition of his classic work on the subject, updated for modern readers, is long overdue.

This is exactly the kind of teaching we need to revitalize the church in our generation. As Owens experience of the living God becomes ours we shall be set on fire with longing to know God more deeply and serve him more faithfully in a world which needs him as much now as it did in Owens day. Gerald L. It is one of the finest examples of Owens massive output. It is a landmark in Western Trinitarian thought, uniquely wedding profound theology to Christian piety.

It vividly thrusts before us the Holy Trinity as the one object of our worship. Kapic and Taylor have removed many of the difficulties of seventeenth-century writing in this edition, making accessible an old classic to a new audience. This book could revolutionize your thoughts of God, your worship of him, and how you live in todays world. There is renewed interest in the Trinity these days, and there is also a deep hungering for genuine spirituality.

Owen combines the two in a powerful manner, pointing the way to a vital relationship with the triune God. Wells Andrew Mutch Distinguished Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "Among English-speaking theologians and pastors, John Owen and Jonathan Edwards run neck and neck for the first place in profound, faithful, fruitful displays of the glory of God in the salvation of sinners.

Not only that, they are both running for first among the ranks of those who show practically how that glory is experienced here and now. Owen may have the edge here. And Communion with the Triune God is his most extraordinary effort. No one else has laid open the paths of personal fellowship with the three persons of the Trinity the way Owen does. What an honor it would be to God if more of his children knew how to enjoy him the way Owen does. John Owen is a profound teacher on all aspects of spiritual life, and it is a joy to welcome this reappearance of one of his finest achievements.

John Owen: Communion with God

Modern evangelical, and even modern Reformed writing with a few honourable exceptions , give little thought to a doctrine that is the first and foundational truth of the Christian religion. In the Bible, fellowship with God, living, personal, mind-engaging, heart-affecting fellowship, is held out to us as the consummating fruit of the gospel. I stand at the door and knock. Christ will sup with believers: he refreshes himself with his won graces to them, by his Spirit bestowed on them.
