Overview

To see the glory of Christ is one of the greatest privileges that a Christian can enjoy. Anyone who does not see his glory in this world, will not see his glory in heaven and no one should look for anything in heaven that he has not experienced in this life. Just as looking directly into the sun darkens our vision, so Christ's heavenly splendour is too brilliant for our mind's eye but in seeing it by faith, we are prepared for heaven. In his immense essence, the infinite God is invisible to our finite human eyes and will remain so for eternity. Only "in the face of Jesus Christ" can we see God and be filled with peace and rest. Read this book and may God by his Word and Spirit give you such a sense of his uncreated glory, blazing forth in Christ, that you will be satisfied and filled with joy. This is the orginal text with a new layout and is fully subtitled which makes it more accessible to a new generation of readers!

Editorial Reviews

Christian Focus Website - Eric Alexander
I'm here today, absolutely certain that the subject we ought to think about together is the glory of Christ. And the reason that I was absorbed with it at the time is that I was reading a book and I want to commend that book to you; I think it is one of these sell-your-shirt books that you really need to buy and read. It is of course called The Glory of Christ, and this is a new edition of it. It was written in the seventeenth century by John Owen, probably the greatest of the Puritans.
Christian Focus Website - Sinclair B. Ferguson
'Take time to read this book. Savour each page. Appreciate the depths of what Owen says. Allow yourself to be analysed, searched, exposed, deconstructed, edified, enlightened, engraced, and refocused on the glory of Jesus Christ.'
