  • How do Christians come to the certainty that the Bible is the Word of God, and gain an understanding of His mind and will from it How do they acquire the ability to pray, and lead others in prayer how are they comforted and supported in all the difficulties they meet And how can the church be led, taught and guided aright, when Christ is not here on earth According toHow do Christians come to the certainty that the Bible is the Word of God, and gain an understanding of His mind and will from it How do they acquire the ability to pray, and lead others in prayer how are they comforted and supported in all the difficulties they meet And how can the church be led, taught and guided aright, when Christ is not here on earth According to the great Puritan leader John Owen, the answer to all these questions is the same by the gracious and powerful work of the Holy Spirit He it is who convinces, assures, teaches, comforts and equips the church and all its members for all the work they are called to do In an age when many think Christianity is nothing than human effort, based on fallible human conclusions, Owen calls the church back to divine certainty and divine resources The style in which the Puritans wrote can present difficulties for modern readers, but this updated abridgement by Dr R.J.K Law will allow Owen to speak to Christians today on a theme which remains as vitally important for the well being of the church in the twenty first century as it was when Owen first wrote.

Particularly the sections on Scripture as the Word of God (it is self-authenticating) and on the Holy Spirit and prayer were powerful.R.J.K. Law is a wonderful "translator" (editor) of Owen. I would highly recommend reading his works from the Puritan Paperback series as opposed to Owen's collected works. The difference is remarkable.Nothing beats Owen when it comes to pastoral theology.

    3. Super helpful, practical, pastoral stuff. Really a worthwhile read. This may be my number 6 book of all time.

    4. John Owen's Spirit and Church should really drop the Church part. It is a dialogue on the role of the Spirit, the Church is discussed but only as the duty of the Holy Spirit. The Sections are extremely short, so though Owen is known for his long and difficult to understand sections, this little volume is the exception.
