Back in October 2009 I purchased the works of John Owen, but ever since that autumn morning that they arrived I have been too daunted by the prospect of reading them. Each volume is huge in its self, and I’m not sure whether Mr. Owen was a fan of the full stop. His sentances are longer than my paragraphs, and his paragraphs longer than my essays.
However, the time has come. I have begun the epic journey through John Owen’s works. Number one, The Glory of Christ. What a good start, thank you Mr. Owen.
I have actually been looking forward to getting my teeth into John Owen’s works and I have finally given in and eagerly grabbed volume one. This is not a marathon, rather a collection of marathons. This is the Eddie Izzard, Marathon Man of the reading world.
