Good Reading

...I do believe that over the years of reading Owen I have probably read almost every word that he ever published, and for that reason it has been a delight to go back to read particularly his teaching on the Holy Spirit. But for the same reason I, more and more, have been deeply daunted, largely because as I have read parts of Owen's work I have discovered that he knew a great deal more about the Holy Spirit than I believed he knew the last time I read him.
Sinclair Ferguson, "John Owen on the Holy Spirit #1"
This quote underlines rather well the value of re-reading good books. More can be learned the second time round. I just need to get round to reading Owen for the first time...
