More than 300 years and still talking!

51jrq5fxj7l__aa240_.jpgYesterday’s quotation from John Owen was from an excellent new edition of some of his classic works. ‘Overcoming Sin & Temptation‘ takes three of his most influential writings and makes them more accessible for today’s reader.

John Owen is still regularly championed as one of Christendom’s most influential writers even though he has been dead for three centuries. However, his style is not easy and is also a particular challenge because of the outdated language. The editor’s, Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor have now revised the originals and provided some useful introductions which outline Owen’s thought and contribution.

I am still working my way into this compendium but am already amazed at his depth of insight into the human condition.
