In 1657, John Owen produced one of his finest devotional treatises (probably originating from the substance of a series of sermons). He examines the Christians communion with God as it relates to all three members of the Trinity. He assures us that every Christian does have communion with God, no one is excluded and that this communion takes place distinctly with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our relationship with God the Father is primarily through love & faith God the Son is through fellowship & grace God the Holy Spirit is primarily through comfort & sanctification. This was a controversial work in ecclesiastical circles of the 17th century. Twenty years after its publication the rational ecclesiastical elite were scoffing at its contents. Owen strongly defended the ideas within this book, and history has shown him to be right It is a classic of Christian devotional thought that still influences the church today.
John Owen (1616-1683) was an early Puritan advocate of Congregationalism and Reformed theology. Educated at Queen's College, Oxford, he served under the Puritan government of Oliver Cromwell as personal chaplain to Cromwell and later as vice-chancellor of Oxford. A contemporary of John Bunyan, Owen's extensive body of work includes twenty-eight books on theological and devotional themes. His later years were spent in pastoral ministry where he served as the leading spokesman for the Protestant Nonconformists. His best known writings have been compiled in the encyclopaedic The Complete Works of John Owen (16 volumes) and The Book of Hebrews (7 volumes).-Editorial Review.
