John Owen (1616–1683) was one of the best known and most prolific English church leaders of the 17th Century. His writings have been a challenge and encouragement to believers throughout the centuries since and have influenced many leaders in the church today. In this attractively bound faux leather book, Lee Gatiss has selected a reading from John Owen’s writings for each day of the year. Theologically sharp, these readings will help you to see the majesty of God anew.
Dr. Lee Gatiss is the Director of Church Society, Editor of the NIV Proclamation Bible, and a Lecturer in Church History at Union School of Theology. He lives in Cambridge, UK.
Amongst the best known of the Puritans, John Owen (1616-1683) was a profound and thought provoking pastor-theologian. His writings continue to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.
Lee Gatiss has done us a great service in producing an accessible collection of bite–size chunks of the rich diet offered by Owen. By tracking Owen’s life this book provides a great introduction to Owen and his thought. But best of all it enables us to marvel afresh at our glorious Saviour.

It’s easy for readers to feel intimidated by the works of England’s greatest puritan theologian. But this new book shows how much of Owen’s writing has a devotional purpose and, in daily readings of two or three paragraphs, allows readers to build theological stamina over time.

What a splendid idea! The abundant riches of John Owen’s writings … in a form that is accessible and easy to absorb.
I pray these bite–sized morsels of devotions on the Word with John Owen as commentator, will help believers not only understand Owen, but through him, to know the Lord.
