Owen's book, Doctrine of Justification by Faith, is a Puritan account of the doctrine of justification. Owen relies on biblical teaching and historical dialogue to expound the doctrine of justification. This volume opens with a comprehensive look at the historical status of the doctrine of justification stemming back to the early church. In the following sections of the book, Owen explores the nature, object, and causes of faith. This provides the foundations for his later discussion on the important role faith plays in justification. Finally, Owen draws upon several passages from the Bible which support his interpretation of justification. Owen's exposition on the topic of justification is unique in that his pastoral experience is evident in his treatment of the text; as a result, his style of presentation is appreciated by a wide variety of readers, not just scholars in the field. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer
