Owen on Communion with God

I noticed last night that now has the book Communion with the Triune God available for pre-order. The book is by John Owen, and was edited by Kelly Kapic and me. (Kelly did his dissertation on Owen at King's College; a revised version of his doctoral work has been recently published by Baker Academic: Communion with God: The Divine and the Human in the Theology of John Owen.)

Our book isn't due out till this fall. I'll have more to say about it in the days ahead, but for now I'll mention that Kevin Vanhoozer kindly agreed to write the foreword for the book, for which we are most thankful.

And here's one blurb to whet your appetite:

"Owen is not for the faint of heart, nor for the impatient, nor for the lazy. But for those who want to deepen their understanding of God's greatness and how we walk with him, this book will repay, many times over, the effort its reading requires. "
