The Glory of Christ
His Office and Grace
The full and unabridged edition of Owen’s classic work.
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 splendor 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 may God by his Word and Spirit give you such a sense of his uncreated glory, blazing forth in Christ, that you will be satisfied and filled with joy.
This is the original text with a new layout and is fully subtitled making it a more accessible read.
“John Owen’s book on The Glory of Christ is the classic writing on that subject. I commend that book to you very warmly and anything that I’ve learned of the glory of Christ, you will find elaborated considerably there.”
— Eric Alexander, Conference speaker and formerly minister St George’s Tron, Glasgow for 20 years
“Take time to read this book. Savor each page. Appreciate the depths of what Owen says. Allow yourself to be analysed, searched, exposed, deconstructed, edified, enlightened, engraced, and refocused on the glory of Jesus Christ.”
— Sinclair B. Ferguson, Associate Preacher, St. Peter’s Free Church, Dundee
“This beautifully produced reprint, with translations of Owen’s Latin by Angus Morrison and a summary introduction by Sinclair Ferguson is an honour to its publishers. With key passages highlighted, unfamiliar terms explained, and plenty of ‘light’ between headed paragraphs, it is a joy to read. Its contents are beyond recommendation. The divine glory of our Saviour leaves us ‘lost in wonder, love and praise.”
