Dr. John Owen (1616-1683), theologian. His works are some of the greatest polemics against Arminianism, wonderful writings for the glory of God, and some of the best treatises ever penned for the good of the church – written by (arguably) the greatest thinking English Puritan Theologian that ever lived.

John Charles Ryle (10 May 1816 – 10 June 1900) was the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool. “From his conversion [in 1837] to his burial [in 1900], J.C. Ryle was entirely one-dimensional. He was a one-book man; he was steeped in Scripture; he bled the Bible. “This is WHY his works have lasted—and will last—they bear the stamp of eternity. Today, more than a hundred years after his passing, Ryle’s works stand at the crossroads between the historic faith and modern evangelicalism."
