Communion with God was written in a day, like our own, when the doctrine of the Trinity was under attack and the Christian faith was being reduced either to rationalism on the one hand or mysticism on the other. His exposition shows that nothing is more vital to spiritual well-being than a practical knowledge of what this doctrine means.
Communion with God – by John Owen and R J K Law
Review by Armand Kruger.
I am not using hyperbole to say this book is a rare gift. Until recently very few Christians good read this book. The work of RJK Law made it accessible in English and Woordverspreiding is making it available in Afrikaans.
Reading this book I became aware that this is really a book for intimate discussion with somebody close to me. The truths described in this book touched me deeply, in that place from which you talk softly to somebody you love and trust.
Owen takes difficult and complicated topics about God and offers it in such an understandable way that it becomes a feast in reading about it. He clarifies more than simplifies. He covers topics like: God the Father, Jesus Christ, Knowig Ourselves, Christ in Action and The Holy Spirit.
A reader will recognise the topics looking at the index, but … but reading the content will make you smile, will make you sad, will make you want to read faster for the next nugget, and you will want to talk about these truths.
