Giveaway: Portrait of a Prophet
A lot has happened in the past three weeks, but the giveaways continue on. Congratulations to Carl in Oscoda, Michigan, and Jan in Wooster, Ohio, for winning the PCRT Anthology!
We now have two copies of Martyn Cowan's Portrait of a Prophet: Lessons from the Preaching of John Owen (1616-1683), published by our friends over at The Latimer Trust. Here is a description from their website:
This study offers a sketch of John Owen’s prophetic preaching in which his dogmatic providentialism and the fiery apocalypticism almost threaten to destroy his image as a Reformed Orthodox theologian and man of the Renaissance. With an initial glance, one might think that there is little practical to be learned from such a vignette. However, upon closer inspection three striking applications, or, in the language of early-modern homiletics, ‘uses’, emerge that are directly relevant for much contemporary preaching.
