Timothy George on John Owen's "Communion with the Triune God"

“John Owen was perhaps the greatest of the Puritan theologians and this new edition of his classic study of Trinitarian spirituality will be a blessing to all who read it. God’s self-revelation as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is not a teaching to be checked off and shelved away for doctrinal safekeeping. It is rather the ultimate basis of prayer, ethics, worship, and Christian life itself. No one presents this truth more powerfully than the great Owen, and Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor’s new edition of Communion with God gives us fresh access to his mind and heart.”

—Timothy George, dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University; senior editor, Christianity Today.

The book comes out in October 2007.
