The Grace and Duty of Being Spiritually Minded
John Owen is one of a long line of prominent theologians in England during the 1600's, some argue he is one of the most prominent England has ever had, including up to modern times.
Published in 1681, The Grace and Duty of Being Spiritually Minded was written while Owen suffered an illness that confined him to his home. During this time, he spent many hours in meditation and reflection on the importance of spirituality in human life. He describes for us how important it is to discipline the mind, no matter how difficult, toward spirituality.
