This is my second review of his works (eventually I hope to work through the whole lot!). One of my regrets in reading … More Communion with God – John Owen

This weeks sermon is on Psalm 76 and was preached at the communion last Sunday. This is the quote I used at the end from Napoleon – his answer to the question, asked towards the end of his life, who is Jesus? Well then, I will tell you. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne and I myself have … More In Israel his Name is Great – Psalm 76
