Editorial Reviews

Review

'Not everyone will want to read John Owen and that is to their detriment. Owen wrote in as timeless a manner as any of the great theologians before and after his time. Men like Augustine and Spurgeon. Owen deserves to be read by all believers and this work deserves to be read by any who are working 'out their salvation with fear and trembling.' I highly recommend this book to all Christians.' --Terry Delaney

About the Author

John Owen was born in 1616 in Stadhampton, Oxfordshire and died in Ealing, West London, in 1683. During his sixty-seven years he lived out a life full of spiritual experience, literary accomplishment, and national influence so beyond most of his peers that he continues to merit the accolade of 'the greatest British theologian of all time.'

[[ASIN:0851516092 Apostasy from the Gospel (Puritan Paperbacks: Treasures of John Owen for Today's Readers)]

Reading the abridged edition of this book (recommended) by R.J.K.
Law is quite helpful in sorting out the great Biblical truths that John Owen shares. Full of Scripture references and important definitions with distinctives allows this composition to be a crucial read in a church age when warnings and admonitions are tossed away as "legalism" or "just being too hard and lacking grace".

Owen's long first chapter, "The Nature And Causes Of Apostasy", reveals four great privileges that do not accompany salvation (Heb. 6:4-6): 1) spiritual illumination; 2) tasting the heavenly gift; 3) partakers of the Holy Spirit; 4) and tasting the good Word of God. This section reveals the important distinctions between the sincere/insincere (read William Gurnall, The Christian In Complete Armor - Book 2). The author (Owen) cogently states, "Many are partakers of Him in spiritual gifts who are never partakers of Him in His saving graces." The falling away refers to a persistent rebellion and disobedience to God and His Word, declares the author.

Owen further states that people have difficulties with the Gospel and even forsake it, because of a "rooted enmity in our minds to all spiritual things." (Rom. 8:7). Therefore, when evangelical truths are in Owen's words, "...pressed against the consciences of men...," this enmity rises in our hearts in rebellion and rejection against such truth.

The aim of Biblical truth is to get the eyes of men off of themselves and their own righteousness, "for present peace and future glory.

This books examines what the Church today and in it's history has ignored "Apostasy", mainly those false doctrines, those who call themselves "christians" but by their fruit and results arent. As with every Owen work, exposition is clear and his knowledge of God's Word is incredibly shown. Although he was writing against the biggest apostasy of his time (which still lingers in ours) Roman Catholic Church, it's principles are applicable to the whole dispensation of the Church.

Other good books I have find on this theme are The Truth War, John MacArthur which takes an historical as well as a modern view of the apostasies of our times. Also JC Ryle's 1800's classic "Warnings to the Churches". We often forget the many warnings our Lord gave against false teachers, doctrines, etc. they fill the whole of scripture. Our biggest discernment tool like JC Ryle once wrote is pure Bible study, diligence in searching Him in the Scriptures.

Few in churches today are actually preaching the truth about Salvation I am sorry to say. Instead treating you to a myriad of "health, wealth, and prosperity" teaching claiming that is from God, it is NOT. In fact the BIBLE says we may endure all kinds of hardships, being hated, killed, the list goes on.

Many in the pulpits of today's churches claim all one must do is "Accept Jesus in their heart" which is NOT in the Bible any where. That "Doctrine is not there period no matter how hard they try and NO Revelations did not mean Jesus is standing at the door of your heart hoping you will let Him in. That was to a CHURCH not to YOU.

This book will share with you a DEEP inside look at the truth, your own salvation, and so much more.

I warn you, if you want to go on with your dreams of God being loving and loving you JUST AS YOU ARE, you better go read something from the guru Joel Osteen because this book is TRUTH not fiction.

If you are serious about your faith in Jesus Christ and want the truth even if it means you find out everything you think you know is a LIE, as did I many years ago as a minister, than this IS the book for you. ONLY THE TEACHABLE WILL GET ANYTHING OUT OF THIS. Those set in their fantasy will be angered only.

God bless I pray you see the truth in this book as so many have.

I have the paperback 'Apostasy from the Gospel', Abridged and made easy to read by R.J.K. Law. A Puritan Paperback book - John Owen. When I purchased and downloaded this book, I expected the kindle version of the paperback or even the longer version. What I received, in the kindle version of the book, was a long narrative titled 'to the reader' and a listing of the chapters from the book itself but no narrative. The narrative 'To the Reader' is not listed or shown in Law's abridged version. I am really looking for the 'Puritan Paperback' "Apostasy from the Gospel" and this version was a waste of $2.99 to Amazon. To their credit, they did list that the book was only 26 pages, but threw me off when they went on to say "This Classic Puritan meditation on Hebrews 6:4-6 contains the following chapters and it list all of them including 'To the Reader'. Expecting to read the other chapters, all I received was their titles.
I would not recommend this kindle download if you are looking to read John Owen's "Apostasy from the Gospel" in any form.
