Communion with God: Fellowship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
“Owen, with skillful scriptural exegesis and warmest pastoral insight takes us to the very heart of Christianity in this treatise ... The beauty of John Owen's theology, and most of all, the beauty of the love of God in Christ to us needy souls shines through. I shall be enthusiastically recommending this new volume to my classes.”See All

“Owen was by common consent the weightiest Puritan theologian, and many would bracket him with Jonathan Edwards as one of the greatest Reformed theologians of all time.”See All

In 1657, John Owen produced one of his finest devotional treatrises: probably originating from the substance of a series of sermons.
He examines the Christian's communion with God as it relates to all three members of the trinity. He assures that every Christian does have communion with God, no-one is excluded and that this communion takes place distinctly with Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Our relationship with...
- God the Father is primarily through love and faith.
- God the Son is through fellowship & grace.
- God the Holy Spirit is primarily through comfort and sanctification.
This was a controversial work in ecclesiastical circles of the 17th century. Twenty years after its publication, the rational ecclesiastical elite were scoffing at it's contents. Owen strongly defended the ideas within this book, and history has shown him to be right! It is a classic of Christian devotional thought that still influences the church today.
