-True beauty is to be like God. And to be born anew to that glorious condition is the birth and inheritance.
-Who would endure anything for Christ, if it were not for a better estate afterwards?
-A man cannot enjoy the comfort of heaven upon the earth without self-denial and mortification.

Evangelical Love, Church Peace, and Unity was written at a time when John Owen found it necessary to speak of a sinful decay of love among professors of the gospel in this nation. It deals with the importance of these virtues at all levels of church life. Owen believed the Church needed more love because without it, more and more arguments and schisms would occur and unity would be dissolved. Schisms were almost impossible to overcome, Owen said because neither side was willing to sacrifice its pride. (Courtesy CCEL)
