4 Hours of Sleep?

John Owen (1616 – August 24, 1683).

“His time [John Owen’s time] at Oxford was apparently marked by extreme acts of self-discipline, survival on only four hours of sleep a night to allow more time for study, and a growing reputation as a flautist, a long jumper, and a javelin thrower.”

-Carl Trueman in his book titled, John Owen: Reformed, Catholic, Renaissance Man.
