    About “John Owen”

    1. John Owen

      John Owen was an English theologian and was without doubt not only the greatest theologian of the English Puritan movement but also one of the greatest European Reformed theologians of his day, and quite possibly possessed the finest theological mind that England ever produced Owen, John , in Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals, p 494

    1. This is my first introduction to the God-given brilliance of John Owen. One chapter had me on my knees repenting of sin of not fighting the sin in my life.John Owen masterfully expounds the wonderful verse:Romans 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.In other words, "be killing sin or it will be killing you".Owen shows that because of the Spirit, you are armed to the teeth in everything to take down si [...]



    2. There are few books in life that compel one to commit to re-reading them every year. This book is one of those works. John Owen is a notoriously hard read but your labor will return to ten-fold. Owne is rightly considered the "Great Doctor of the Soul." He pierces your conscience, reveals all your tricks and appeasement of your inward corruptions and sin, and then applies the glorious Gospel and promises of God to your wounds so that you may be healed and restored to spiritual health and vigor. [...]



    3. Direct, yet grounded. His word choices are both incisive and illustrative. He can challenge, and encourage. He can scare where we should be fearful, and speak peace in its place. A pastor's heart definitely comes through the pages and the centuries.


    4. John Owen brilliantly exposits that killing sin is both evidence of grace and empowered by grace! While our generation might be quick to label such a wonderful exposition of scripture 'legalism', Owen doesn't feel that way, making the point that one is not saved by killing sin nor is it possible without a genuine faith in Christ. John Owen makes it clear that the "mortification of sin" is simply the Christians duty, while also making it clear that we are saved through faith and faith empowered b [...]


    5. John Owen's work on mortification covers the seldom today treated topic of putting sin to death in a thorough and convincing manner, but it does require a lot of thought and hence is a bit slow to read.




    6. "Be killing sin or it will be killing you." Among the best works one will find on how to kill the sin in his own life. This puritan classic has me looking forward to reading many more works from the era. It is every believer's responsibility to repent of indwelling sin. This short book is packed with rich theology and most importantly reminds the believer that it is only by the Spirit that sin is mortified (Rom 8:13). This is one I plan on rereading several times throughout the rest of my life. [...]


    7. To be honest I began this book with the expectation that I would be discouraged by the holiness (and vernacular) of this old Puritan. Thankfully the opposite is true. I’ve never heard anyone articulate sin the way Owen does. His systematic approach to sin and its mortification has encouraged me in many ways. Not just to the end of ridding myself of lusts but to glorify Christ as He ought to be glorified. After all that Owen says in this book the most precious direction he gives is to look upon [...]



    8. Very good book. I felt convicted in the casual way I sometimes look at sin. Written by one of the great Puritan theologians


    9. Loved this book. I am currently recommending this book to everyone I know. The Lord really used it to help me visualize the seriousness of sin and Spirit-led sanctification as a whole. I highly recommend reading this with a friend and going through it a chapter or two at a time. Doing so really helped me to mull over the material and retain it for every day practice. Quick note: some parts of the book will seem very harsh, but keep in mind that Owen is preaching against "nominal" Christianity, a [...]


    10. John Owen is a 17th century Puritan known chiefly for his works on dealing with sin, something you'd be hard pressed to find in a “Christian” bookstore today, let alone calling sin sin. This particular work is a classic along with his companion works of Indwelling Sin and Temptation: The Nature and Power of It. J.I. Packer says about Owen:The greatest Christian writers are those who most powerfully project to spiritual readers the knowledge of God, of ourselves, and of the grace of our Lord [...]


    11. Owen was a Puritan master. Most people only have a stereotypical view of the Puritans, propagated mostly by Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. But, the Puritans were masters of spirituality. Their desire, in it's purest form, was to purify the Church of England of abuses. More importantly, they wanted to purify themselves. They took God's call to be like Christ seriously. Thus, Owen preached a series on Romans 8:13, and they've been published in various forms. Although the style is antiquated, and [...]


    12. This is a timeless book. As long as there are Christians serious about fighting and killing sin, this book will be relevant. This book is (loosely) an exposition of Romans 8:13,"For if you live by the flesh, you will die. But if by the Spirit, you put to death [mortify] the deeds of the body, you will live." You can fight sin at many levels, but you will only effectively kill sin if you strike at the root. Owen has much counsel to offer in this endeavor. He points out many issues that are at the [...]


    13. There are a very small number of books outside of Scripture itself that I consider fundamental to Christianity. When a young Christian asks me, "What should I read?" it's not hard for me to pick a few really great books. The Mortification of Sin is now on that short list.This book breaks down Mortification (killing sin) in a way modern society desperately needs. While Repentance is a normal part of the Christian conversation, actually killing sin is something we're woefully ill prepared for. And [...]


    14. Not only does Owen give a biblical account of sin, but he also anticipates some moments in neuroscience and psychiatry in how sin can hide where the mind can't find it, and how to deal with it. While some warn that Owen will "use the knife," and it's true that he does, it's also merciful and he doesn't hurt too bad.Our duty: The choicest believers, who are assuredly freed from the condemning power of sin, ought yet to make it their business all their days to mortify the indwelling power of sin ( [...]


    15. This is a very interesting read on the topic of killing sin. It is a book that is not merely meant to be read but to be done. In total there are 9 preparatory directions and 2 major directions given by John Owen for the killing of sin in ones life. In a day that perhaps overuses the term "gospel-centered" it is revealing to find just how much Owen uses the term "gospel" (a ton, so perhaps we are not so far off based). It is a relatively easy read and this version is a little abridged, however th [...]


    16. I enjoyed this book however it was a bit tedious reading. I was very encouraged by it however and would highly recommend it to any Christian. Of course there were many profound statements regarding mortification of sin. While of course mainly focusing on faith and sincerity in repentance he also gave many guidelines and warnings of the dangers of how subtle our hearts work in allowing sin to fester. He gives many precautions and encouragements to walk the line of faith.


    17. I cheated on this one! I started the Kindle version, the original edition. I just couldn't seem to concentrate enough to read it so found an abridged and updated version. onthewing/Owenml It is much easier to read, but I am sure a lot was lost in the transition. Someday I hope to give the other another try. It is well worth the effort!


    18. This book has a great amount of truth in it. Owen's strongest statements are based firmly in Scripture, but the archaic writing does not lend itself to extended readings. I heard about this book while listening to John Piper's June 2002 sermon series entitled "How to Kill Sin" (available for free download at desiringgod *wink wink*) and I would suggest listening to those first.


    19. I am certain, taking things by faith, that this book deserves more stars. But the truth is, I'm just too 21st century to have comprehended it particularly well. Which is a shame, since I'm sure that I am in dire need of such comprehension.Grateful for Stephen Escalara's reading, which was steady and even and didn't get in the way.


    20. Sadly (or not) this was a DNF. The 17th century writing and syntax was way too difficult to plough through, and the Calvinist/Puritan Theology I found even more difficult to connect with. I may come back to it, but probably not.


    21. Thank you, John Owen, for teaching me to furnish my soul in the faithful promises of God, that is, in Christ, my soul will find relief from my sin.




    22. The Mortification of Sin, published in book form in 1656, originated as a series of sermons Owen preached in Oxford. Owen is not the easiest to read, but if you’re comfortable reading the King James Version, you should be able to manage Owen just fine. If the language proves to be a challenge, a slightly modernized (but unabridged) version of this book has been published under the title Overcoming Sin & Temptation, which also includes two companion works, Of Temptation (1658) and Of Indwel [...]
