The writings of John Owen are a challenge to any reader, to say the least. His intricacy and complexity are intimidating and his language is downright befuddling at times. However, the depth of thought and the immense value of Owen's works cannot be quantified. His three classic works on sin and temptation are profoundly helpful to any believer who seeks to become more like Jesus Christ. In this volume, the editors have made updates to the language, translated the Latin, Greek, and Hebrew and footnoted difficult or unknown phrases, all without sacrificing any of the wonderful content of Owen's work. It is a uniquely accessible edition of John Owen's previously daunting work.
Great Update on a Classic
I cannot recommend this book enough to the Christian reader. It is not an easy read, but it is well worth the challenge. The editors have done a great job of updating the language and have also included helpful glossary and outlines.
I have read many books on the Christian life and not got as much out of the whole of them than this one collection. Owen had incredible insight into the human soul and it's weaknesses. He also understood how God can make us well. Worth reading again, again, and again.
