I definitely get that but it will be useful inside Logos for academic work. Plus, I have the rest of his works inside there. I want to complete the set. I intend to also get it in a tangible form. Owen and Hebrew are personal favorites. I hope to do academic work on them both in the futureI would not spend money on the Logos version when you may read it elsewhere online for free.
Very impressive! You read much faster than I do. Let me ask- How long are your reading intervals? I'm guessing you're reading for 2-3 hours at a time. Is that correct? Or do you break it up in smaller chunks?I have now finished volume 7 of Hebrews and, with it, the entire 24 volumes of John Owen's works. Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to read the Hebrews commentary. Doing so was a very worthwhile endeavour.
Here is something that I wrote on another social media venue to encourage people to read more of John Owen:
I have now completed reading John Owen's 7 volume commentary on Hebrews, which also means that I have read all 24 volumes of his works. Since late December, I have read 14 volumes in total (the 6 remaining volumes of the doctrinal and practical works that I had not previously read, the English translation of his "Biblical Theology", and the Hebrews commentary). There are a few items online and in other books that did not make it into Owen's works, which I will try to read shortly.
While the sheer volume of Owen's corpus may appear off-putting, it is worth making the effort to read all of his writings. Not many voluminous authors are worth reading in full, but Owen is an exception. If you own Owen's works but have not read much of them, I would encourage you to make a serious effort to work through them. Set a realistic target of one volume a year to begin with, and then gradually try to read more.
Having read all these works, I suppose that I should now consider going back and reading the volumes of Owen that I first read many years ago.
When I was coming towards the end of my PhD, I developed the habit of being able to read whole monographs (usually circa 250 pages) per day. I did so because there were certain books that I needed to read before submitting the thesis, but could not afford to limit myself to reading 1 or 2 chapters a day. Generally speaking, I take a short break from reading whenever there is a natural break in the book that I am reading. Sometimes I only read for 30 minutes at a time, other times I can read for 2 hours at a time. It just depends on various factors.Very impressive! You read much faster than I do.
