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. Disunity in the church also created more
dissenters and nonconformists. The lessons Owen teaches here also need
to be heard in the modern church, and this book will offer several
strategies for remedying broken churches today.
