Great is the Mystery of Godliness

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

Profound words, very relevant today, from John Owen, Vol. 1 Some would have all things that we are to believe to be leveled absolutely unto our reason and comprehension — a principle which, at this day, shakes the very foundations of the Christian religion.

John Owen’s Epitaph

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

The greatest puritan, John Owen, is buried in Bunhill Fields Burial Ground in London. His epitaph is in Latin; here is an English translation.

Man’s Duty and God’s Purpose

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

Those who read texts such as John 3:16 in a universal light cannot understand how an atonement, intended by God for the salvation of […]

Submitted by Prof. Renihan On Monday, my book Edification and Beauty came forth from the press and should be available soon from online retailers.

Great is the Mystery of Godliness

Monday, September 29th, 2008

From Ambrose, (De Fide, ad Gratianum) as cited by John Owen in the Preface to Christologia I inquire of you when and how the Son was begotten? Impossible it is to me to know the mystery of this generation. My mind faileth, my voice is silent — and not only mine, but of the angels; […]
