The Glory of Christ tells how the Bible describes the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Is it your desire to be like Christ? 2 Cor 3:18 promises the changing into the likeness of Christ if we’ve got the knowledge of His glory. If other ways and means have failed to make you Christ-like, put this one to the test!
A man confronting his thoughts about Christ in his dying days. No room for lies, or platitudes. Written from a heart getting ready to meet his Maker. Arguably, you will not find a more honest book than this about Christ, and a person’s relationship to Him.
Somewhere in the reading of this book, I became aware of “Be still, this is God I am reading about.” From then on I was not just reading a book, it became a dedicated and inquisitive journey in discovering Christ through the eyes of Owen.
In this book it is like Owen is holding up a diamond to the light and gently show its different faces while commenting on the beauty of each. This is how he lovingly offers this Christ-sight to the reader.
Owen cover topics like: That they can see My Glory, The Glory of Christ as Mediator and The Glory of Christ as shown by the mystery of His two natures.
Also,a range of attributes of Christ, like His humanity, His humbleness, His obedience and His Love.
This is a book I intended to read in quiet, relaxing moments. Quickly it became moments of dedication, of needing to know more of this Savior whom I have known for many years.
… I open my over-used copy of the ‘Glory of Christ’ and read any page
Hierdie is ‘n boekie wat ek altyd binne reikafstand hou om telkens na te slaan
… ek was verstom oor hoe besonderlik heerlik die heerlikheid van Christus werklik is!
Ek leen my kopie van hierdie boek vir niemand nie!
Sy prag en lieflikheid sal jou lewe verander!

The Glory of Christ was John Owen’s last book. He died as it was being printed. It was written, he tells us, “for the exercise of my own mind when weakness, weariness and the near approach of my death” were calling him.
The continual view of the glory of Christ will have the blessed effect of changing you more and more into the likeness of Christ. “My sin is not so much this or that particular evil, but my continual separation and distance from God.”
