Sermons of John Owen By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $2.99
As a preacher, the value of John Owen--the renowned Puritan theologian--has not been appreciated to a sufficient degree. Well respected in his day for his preaching, Owen's renown has dwindled since... More > then. (Perhaps the importance of his other impressive works has diverted attention away from his Sermons.) Nevertheless, this is a shame since Owen's Sermons are wonderfully crafted and quite powerful. Further, the style of his sermons provides a nice complement to his many theological treatises. They clearly display the ability Owen had to capture the attention of an audience in order to teach them the great truths of the gospel. This particular volume brings together not only sermons Owen delivered during his life, but a series of posthumously published sermons as well. John Owen's Sermons should reestablish Owen as an impressive preacher; they will not disappoint! -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Of the Mortification of Sin in Believers By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $1.99
(1 Ratings)
John Owen was essentially a pastoral theologian, and in his best work, his pastoral concern and acute doctrinal instinct are inseparable. Of the Mortification of Sin is such a work. In this work--the... More > substance of which is a series of addresses on Romans 8--Owen provides teaching in a vital but neglected aspect of Christianity. Owen takes up many of the questions that occur to every believer in the battle against sin. All of his direction is directly grounded in various Biblical passages. He provides keen exegesis and sound advice. This classic work has been reprinted countless times--a testimony to its lasting power! -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Meditations and Discourses on the Glory of Christ By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Meditations and Discourses on the Glory of Christ is a collection of discourses in which John Owen proclaims the glory of the Lord as it is revealed in Scripture. Owen states that because we are... More > human, Christ's glory is, in a sense, incomprehensible to us--we can never fully grasp it. Fortunately, the Bible provides us with ample information to help us appreciate the glory of Christ and to guide us in our worship. Owen uses these discourses to expound upon the different types of glory that Christ exhibits: the glory of His love, the glory of His mystery, His glory as mediator, His glory in the church, and the glory of His eternal being. It is through Christ that our lowly nature is sanctified and our relationship with God is ultimately secured. Owen teaches Christians that nothing they do has any meaning outside of that which Christ anoints with His glory. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Gospel Grounds and Evidences of the Faith of God's Elect By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $2.99
What role does faith play in our relationship with God? How does genuine faith influence a Christian's life? John Owen dedicates this collection of treatises to the study of faith--its nature and... More > effects. The central focus of Owen's treatises is the "Trial of Faith," by which Owen understands genuine faith to imply four things. First, genuine faith implies that God saves us from sin. Second, genuine faith implies that the Christian accepts God's command for holiness and obedience. Third, genuine faith is preserved through worship and devotion. And finally, genuine faith incites repentance and other spiritual habits in the Christian. Owen relies on the Word of the Lord to guide his exploration of faith, citing numerous Bible passages on the subject. Owen challenges Christians to examine their faith and offers them tangible tools to strengthen their faith in places it might be lacking. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Christologia By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The object of John Owen in this treatise is to illustrate the mystery of divine grace in the person of Christ. It bears the title Christologia, but it differs considerably from many works of the same... More > title. Owen is not occupied with a formal proof from Scripture of the Godhood of Christ. Instead, he assumes the truth of this doctrine, and applies all his efforts and resources to show its bearing on Christian duty and experience. The Christology of Owen has always been highly valued, and will be useful to members of the church of all ages together with its continuation, Meditations of the Glory of Christ. Christologia is considered one of the most important post-Reformation works beside Calvin's Institutes. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Sacramental Discourses By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $2.99
John Owen believed that many Christians during his time failed to benefit from the sacrament of communion because they misunderstood the nature of the special union with Christ. Often, Christians... More > have a tendency to become preoccupied with novelties while practicing the sacrament. It was Owen's aim to help reorient Christians towards the Bible as the standard of truth. Through communion, we as Christians are called to first represent Christ to ourselves and then to profess his greatness to others. Owen offers advice for Christians on how to prepare for communion highlighting the importance of confession and self-examination. He also considers the practical concerns of both the individual and the church institution with regards to the act of communion itself. The series of discourses is intended to be used by Christians of all denominations in meditation as they approach the Lord's Table. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Treatise of the Dominion of Sin and Grace By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $0.99
This treatise by John Owen is founded on Romans 6:14. Owen, an English Congregationalist, assumes three facts are true before the writing of his piece. First, that sin dwells in believers; second,... More > that it seeks to renew its dominion over them; and third, that it endeavors to accomplish its goal by deceit and force. He then explores the nature of sin's power over humanity, explains how to tell when sin is in one's life, and then assures believers that sin does not have the ultimate power in their lives. Owen's work is a perfect blend of recognition of sin and the influence it has on all humans, and comforting assurance that it does not have the last word. It reiterates the basic knowledge Christians find in the Bible about sin, but Owen's sharp mind is able to glean implied meanings and give more body to the information found in Scripture. Readers who want an honest yet hopeful account of sin need look no further than Owen's Treatise. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Brief Declaration and Vindication of The Doctrine of the Trinity By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $2.99
In this focused and enlightening treatise, John Owen defends the truth and coherency of the doctrine of the Trinity. Owen responds most explicitly to the heresy of "Socinianism."... More > Socinianism holds that Christ did not pre-exist before being a man. Working with both Scripture and tradition, Owen vigorously argues for a traditional account of the Trinity. Owen doesn't just defend this doctrine, however; he also calls for faith in it as well. To indicate the importance of the Trinity, Owen ends his treatise with an explanation of the satisfaction of Christ. For without the Trinity, Owen argues, there can be no doctrine of satisfaction of sins through Christ. Unlike some of Owen's other work, Brief Declaration and Vindication of the Doctrine of the Trinity is highly focused, lacking long treatments of secondary points. This tightly argued work will remind readers of the importance and power of the doctrine of the Trinity. -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Wrtier< Less
Doctrine of Justification by Faith By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $1.99
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... More > 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< Less
Pneumatologia By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Pneumatologia --or, 'Owen on the Holy Spirit,' as the work has generally been called--is perhaps one of the best known, and most highly esteemed of John Owen's treatises. Pneumatologia is divided... More > into five parts. The first part contains a general and preliminary account of the Holy Spirit. The second part addresses the operations of the Holy Spirit in the Old and New Testaments. The third part discusses the doctrine of regeneration. The fourth part addresses the doctrine of sanctification, and the role of the Holy Spirit in it. The final part contains arguments extolling the reader to holiness. This is a beloved treatise, as John Newton once wrote to a correspondent: "We are favoured with many excellent books in our tongue, but I with you agree in assigning one of the first places as a teacher to Dr. Owen. I have just finished his discourse on the Holy Spirit which is an epitome, if not the masterpiece of his writings." -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
