Product Information

It is a question Jesus asked, ''What do you think about the Christ'' (Matthew 22:42). The Pharisees did not know Him at all.

But what of the ones who profess to know Him. What do they think of the Christ? If they are truly saints, surely they will want to know all about Him. ''To those who believe to the saving of the soul, He is, He always has been, precious . . . everything that is good, useful, amiable, desirable, here or unto eternity'' writes John Owen in this book.

''By Him they are brought into the nearest knowledge, alliance, and friendship with God, the firmest union unto Him, and the most holy communion with Him.'' All that our finite natures are capable of may be had, and can be so conducted to the eternal enjoyment of Him. Should we not then make it the principal design of our lives to know Him'' – '' the mystery of His wisdom, grace, and love of God. Will we  not seek after conformity to Him in all the characters of Divine goodness and holiness which are revealed to us in the Scriptures?''

In this classic book are the many ways to learn of Christ, why He is our only foundation, how He can be both Man and the ''express image of the essence of God'' (Heb. 1:3). Here are laid out for the reader His honor, glory, life and power. Learn the keys to love and obey Him. Marvel at the wisdom of God in constituting the Christ, so that He might be the sole One who could live, suffer, and die in order to redeem men, even while they were without strength, ungodly, sinners  enemies, to reconcile them to God.

He is glorious in His love, in His mediation, in His exaltation, in His communication of Himself to His elect. If you have not seen Him and known Him like this, let John Owen lead you through the Scriptures.
What do you think about the Christ? Should we not all yearn after Him as did the Apostle Paul?
 
''rather, I also count all things to be loss because of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord,  . . . that I might gain Christ, and be found in Him, . . . to know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His suffering . . . if somehow I might attain to a resurrection from the dead'' (Phil. 3:8-11)

John Owen (1616-1683) was noted as one of the most powerful theologians in the Puritan age. He was Vice-Chancellor of Oxford in the time of Cromwell. His works total 23 volumes, all invincible to any contrary argument. 504 pages, blue linen hard cover
