Here’s a little more helpful info on Trueman’s introduction to Owen. Trueman presses one specific work of Owen for your initial consideration. It is Communion with the Triune God. This is a light editing by Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor of Owen’s Of Communion with God.
In his video introduction, Trueman mentions the struggle many Christians have to understand the importance and impact of the doctrine of the Trinity on their everyday spiritual and devotional life. Owen’s work explores the right relationship of the Christian to the one true God considered in the individual persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
You can read Kevin Vanhoozer’s Foreword, Justin Taylor’s Note on This Edition, Preface, Chapter 1, and Glossary –PDF.
Reality Check… this is not Owen lite. Reading him is hard work. Why bother? You will be better equipped to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Carl Trueman gives a good brief overview of John Owen’s life and impact. He also presses one of Owen’s works for our consideration, which I now plan to read in the near future. (HT: JT)
