Robert Letham on Trinitarianism faith

"His (John Owen) focus on the three Persons was and is missing from the West in general. It is vital to restore a full blooded Trinitarianism faith. On the other hand in this he exhibits an over-reliance on allegorical exegesis of the Song of Solomon in "On Communion" - not that an allegorical, Christocentric interpretation of the Song of Solomon is illegitimate - despite attempts in the last century to rule it out - it is simply that this seems to me to be an inadequate basis for such an important argument".

Robert Letham - "John Owen's Doctrine of the Trinity" in "Where Reason Fails" - Westminster Conference 2006 - (pp14-15).
