For the Benefit of the Church

“None of his [John Owen’s] theology was intended for its own sake, as some kind of glass-bead game to be played by an elite few in isolation from the world around.  On the contrary: it was theology done within the church for the benefit of the church.” (128)

A sentence taken from part of the conclusion of Carl Trueman’s book titled John Owen: Reformed Catholic, Renaissance Man.
