Stevensville’s Fort Owen: 2018 Update

Fort Owen is one of Montana’s most significant historic places—where interaction between American traders and Native Americans date before the Civil War—and it is one of my favorite places, for both its layered history and the beauty of its location. 187 more words

The Cross, the Temple and the Gospel - Sinclair Ferguson, Andy Robertson and John Owen

Last Sunday was apparently quite a special one in St Peters – if you listen to the two services you will hear why – Sinclair’s sermon on the Cross is stunning, as is Andrew’s on Ezekiel.  232 more words

Review: John Owen and English Puritanism

by Crawford Gribben. Oxford.

Crawford Gribben suggests, perhaps ironically, that John Owen’s life is shaped around a series of “defeats.” Although this text is part of Oxford’s series on historical theology, is weighted more towards biography than to theology, though Gribben is capable of skillfully surveying Owen’s theological developments. 256 more words

Review: John Owen on the Christian Life (Ferguson)

This book is exactly what you would expect from an Owen scholar writing on John Owen.  It is clear and rarely goes off rabbit-trails.  While it is old in some ways, and not every locus of systematic theology gets treated, a careful study of this work will repay pastoral ministry. 338 more words
