Justin Taylor Interviews Me About The Resurrection

Justin Taylor is a long-time electronic friend of mine.  He has always struck me as a good brother when I have met him face to face, and I very much enjoy his blog.  A couple of years ago I interviewed him by email.

Let him know if you think he makes a good interviewer as he is considering doing similar films with other authors in the future. I think he did really well … [Read more...]

Justin Taylor on Why We Need Christian Books

Only one book is absolutely essential to save us, to equip us to obey God's will, and to glorify Him in whatever we do. Only one book gives us undiluted truth--the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Only one book serves as our ultimate and final authority in all that it affirms. That book, of course, is the Bible, God's Holy Word. . .And yet the irony is that if we use only this book, we may in fact be in disobedience to it. We should count good teaching about the Bible--whether through … [Read more...]

2008 Top Posts Numbers 29 and 30

As you read this, I have just returned from a blog holiday. Thanks to Blogger's scheduling feature, I have been able to give this blogger a rest without any interruption of posts while I was away.

John Owen – Man of the Word and Spirit

In conclusive proof that there is nothing new under the sun, we see in this quote on John Owen a devoted conviction to both Word and Spirit. How we need churches today who will bring both emphases to the fore, as did Martyn Lloyd Jones in the quote I posted yesterday.May God raise up an army of believers who can say “Amen!” to the following quote where Owen is described by the editors of Communion With the Triune God as follows:"Central to Puritan thinking was an effort to make sure their … [Read more...]

John Owen on How Conscious Communion With Christ Keeps Us From Sin

In this extract from the forthcoming Owen book, John Owen reveals just how distant he is from many modern-day Christians. How often do we talk about a conscious relationship with the living Christ? How much do we truly enjoy his presence? How much are we aware of how precious he is? Is our failure to truly pursue a conscious experience of Jesus part of the reason why we often struggle to fight against sin? Who would eat the moldy crumbs of pleasure that the world would offer us when we have … [Read more...]

John Owen on Communion With God the Father

The following passage, taken from the forthcoming John Owen book, Communion with the Triune God, highlights a reason for our spiritual weakness and our lack of joy—we do not consciously commune with God the Father, and when we think of him, we think of him as full of wrath toward us:"First, then, this is a duty wherein it is most evident that Christians are but little exercised—namely, in holding immediate communion with the Father in love. Unacquaintedness with our mercies, our privileges, … [Read more...]
