Historical Hero?

Justin Taylor of Between Two Worlds and his friend Josh Sowin of Fire and Knowledge have created a new informational website about John Owen.

Owen is Taylor's historical hero. A lot of my current contemporary heros have historical ones. John Piper's is Jonathan Edwards. CJ Mahaney's is Charles Spurgeon. JI Packer loves Owens, too. I think Mark Dever's is Richard Sibbes.

I'm not sure I'll ever have one. I've never really enjoyed reading primary source material, though I'm getting better at it.

I don't know. Maybe I should be hunting for a hero.
