John Owen believed that many Christians
during his time failed to benefit from the sacrament of
communion because they misunderstood the nature of the
special union with Christ. Often, Christians have a

reorient Christians towards the Bible as the standard of

intended to be used by Christians of all denominations in
meditation as they approach the Lord's
