Paperback
To see the glory of Christ is one of the greatest privileges that a Christian can enjoy. Anyone who does not see his glory in this world, will not see his glory in heaven, and no one should look for anything in heaven that he has not experienced in this life. Just as looking directly into the sun darkens our vision, so Christ's heavenly splendour is too brilliant for our mind's eye, but in seeing it by faith, we are prepared for heaven. In his immense essence, the infinite God is invisible to our finite human eyes, and will remain so for eternity. Only "in the face of Jesus Christ" can we see God and be filled with peace and rest.

Read this book, and by his Word and Spirit God may give you such a sense of his uncreated glory, blazing forth in Christ, that you will be satisfied and filled with joy. 288 pages, from CFP.

John Owen

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.

Puritan classic
5 stars By Michael H, Apr 28 2014
This is the first book I have read by John Owen and it will not be the last.  The theology in this book is expansive and deep.  I found myself, several times, having to re-read a section or even put the book down to think about what I had just read.  Owen demonstrates how glorious Christ is in His person and office as Lord and Saviour.  Owen discusses not only the theology of this but how it practically impacts our lives.  I was surprised at how clearly and helpfully Owen connected the two given the theological depth.  He clearly shows the importance of seeing the glory of Christ in some way in this life and the need for us to understand and appreciate it as best we can.  The language has been slightly modernised to help today's readers clearly understand Owen's writing.  I feel that I have only grasped a small amount of what Owen discusses in this book but even still it is more than I have gained from many other books.  This book requires a great deal of effort but the benefits are even greater.
