John Owen,R. J. K. Law
Thomas Chalmers wrote that Owen's book on Spiritual-Mindedness holds 'a distinguished rank among the voluminous writings of this celebrated author'. For him three features made it very special:
-The force with which it applies truth to the conscience.
-The way Owen plumbs the depths of Christian experience as a skillful physician of the soul.
-The uncovering of the secrets of the mind and heart so that the true spiritual state of the reader is discovered.
This book began life as a collection of meditations on Romans 8:6, which were written for the author's own benefit during a time of illness. Alarmed by the subtle power the world exercises over the mind, Owen shows us how to really live by raising our thoughts above all earthly objects and setting them on 'things above, where Christ is' (Col. 3:1)
