Item Description...
John Owen (1616-1683) is one of the most prominent theologians England has ever had. The Grace and Duty of being Spiritually Minded was published in 1681, after illness had caused Owen to spend time meditating upon the importance of spirituality. 'Of all the evils which I have seen in the days of my pilgrimage', he wrote, 'there is none as grievous as the public contempt of the principal mysteries of the Gospel among them that are called Christians.' Here is an abridgement of Owen's volume, in easier English.

More About John Owen

John Owen John Owen (1616-1683) was an early Puritan advocate of Congregationalism and Reformed theology.

Born at Stadhampton, Oxfordshire, Owen was educated at Queen's College, Oxford, where he studied classics and theology and was ordained. Because of the "high-church" innovations introduced by Archbishop William Laud, he left the university to be a chaplain to the family of a noble lord. His first parish was at Fordham in Essex, to which he went while the nation was involved in civil war. Here he became convinced that the Congregational way was the scriptural form of church government. In his next charge, the parish of Coggeshall. in Essex, he acted both as the pastor of a gathered church and as the minister of the parish. This was possible because the parliament, at war with the king, had removed bishops. In practice, this meant that the parishes could go their own way in worship and organization.

Oliver Cromwell liked Owen and took him as his chaplain on his expeditions both to Ireland and Scotland (1649-1651). Owen's fame was at its height from 1651 to 1660 when he played a prominent part in the religious, political, and academic life of the nation. Appointed dean of Christ Church, Oxford, in 1651, he became also vice-chancellor of the university in 1652, a post he held for five years with great distinction and with a marked impartiality not often found in Puritan divines. This led him also to disagreement, even with Cromwell, over the latter's assumption of the protectorship. Owen retained his deanery until 1659. Shortly after the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660, he moved to London, where he was active in preaching and writing until his death. He declined invitations to the ministry in Boston (1663) and the presidency of Harvard (1670) and chided New England Congregationalists for intolerance. He turned aside also from high preferment when his influence was acknowledged by governmental attempts to persuade him to relinquish Nonconformity in favor of the established church.

His numerous works include The Display of Arminianism (1642); Eshcol, or Rules of Direction for the Walking of the Saints in Fellowship (1648), an exposition of Congregational principles; Saius Electorum, Sanguis Jesu (1648), another anti-Arminian polemic; Diatriba de Divina Justitia (1658), an attack on Socinianism; Of the Divine Original Authority of the Scriptures (1659); Theologoumena Pantodapa (1661), a history from creation to Reformation; Animadversions to Fiat Lux (1662), replying to a Roman Catholic treatise; Doctrine of Justification by Faith (1677); and Exercitationes on the Epistle to the Hebrews (1668-1684).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Brings Life and Peace  Jan 23, 2010
How many books have been written in the last century on 'what it is to be spritually minded'and how one can tell whether you have that mindset?Not any that I am aware of.How important is it to be 'spirtually minded'?To be earthly minded means that we cannot please God(Romans 8:8),and therefore we will die(Romans 8:13)."
According to John Owen to be spiritual minded is 'to think about and delight in spiritual things'.This is in contrast to unbelievers who only love 'the things of this world,Christians give a higher priority to loving the things of God.In the preface of the unabridged (the grace and duty of being spiritually minded)Mr.Owen makes this observation'Men live as if this world were everything when comparitively it is nothing'.Thomas Watson states the same truth in this way 'A mans greatest care should be for that place where he lives longest,therefore eternity should be his scope.'
Given the importance of 'having a spiritual mindset'why has so little been written on it in recent generations?I think it is an indication of the low level of godliness that truly exists.
In the chapter 'what makes spiritual things so desirable' the author notes that everything in this life is temporary but spiritual delight (derives from God)and is eternal.Believers also delight in God's wisdom in the way that He saves them from their sins(wheras unbelievers)cannot see that wisdom and beauty in the gospel.
This abridged work will make one of Owen's great spiritual treasures available to many that would never even attempt to get through the unabridged book.
'Thinking Spiritually' will be very helpful to anyone that is struggling with worldliness and seeking to be more heavenliminded.
