Justin Taylor has a great post this week on his Between Two Worlds Blog sharing thoughts from some of the key theologians of our day on the importance of reading John Owen. Here are a couple of our favorite quotes:
“To read John Owen is to enter a rare world. Whenever I return to one of his works I find myself asking ‘Why do I spend time reading lesser literature?’ . . . If we can persevere with his style (which becomes easier the longer we persevere), he will not fail to bring us to the feet of Jesus.”
—Sinclair B. Ferguson
“Owen is extraordinary. Owen is simply extraordinary. He is in a class, Packer says, with Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Edwards—that rarefied top 10 thinkers and pastors in the world. John Owen knows the soul, knows Christ, knows communion with Christ like very few others.”
