About the Author

Known as the "theologian's theologian," JOHN OWEN (1616-1683) was vice chancellor of Oxford University and served as advisor and chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. Among the most learned and active of the Puritans in seventeenth-century Europe, he was an erudite and accomplished theologian both in doctrine and practical theology. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Very clear print version. The strength of the argument is relentlessly driven home and I doubt you could be unclear of his message at the end!

Excellent for People Mature in their Christian Walk 19 Dec 2013
By Mona Windmueller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've found this book to be valuable in trying to understand why and how Christian people can do bad things. It speaks to all who call themselves Christians because we all have our issues with sin until we die, leave this earth, and are given a new body. The book can be somewhat difficult to understand at times because it was first published in 1656. However; there is much wisdom to digest and contemplate, and for that reason it has been a slow read for me during my devotional time. When I first heard about the book, from my son, I thought how can the author, who at the time of its writing in the 17th century was the Dean of Christ Church and Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University, relate to the struggles Christians are having in the 21st century? I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the Christian walk through the ages tends to be the same -- the times, issues, places, names and faces are what change. I've heard that many pastors read this book to make sure that their Christian walk is on track, to ensure spiritual growth, and not hinder the free flow of the Holy Spirit in their ministries. I need the same for the ministry that the Lord has given me in His Will.

Convicting! 17 April 2013
By David R. Ledgerwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have never read a book that so convicted me. Even though it was written hundreds of years ago, Owen understood the Christian experience, the ongoing battle with sin, and the various rationalizations we glibly supply. Highly recommended.

Wonderful book. Challenging. Gripping. Shows what's missing from our landscape today in Christianity. A must read for sure. Enjoy. GB.

Both theologically deep and practical 10 Jun 2014
By Jonathan Ricketts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
John Owen has always been one of the great puritan writers and this book provides even more evidence to that fact. "The Mortification of Sin" gives a concise hamartiology as well as how to deal with sin at the root. Throughout the entire discourse, his emphasis on the believer being dependent on the Spirit of God for victory and ease of conscience is straight in line with the Bible. In this day where it is wrongly seen as legalism to actively seek to mortify sin, John Owen's words are all the more necessary and helpful.
