About the Author

John Owen (1616–1683) was an English Nonconformist church leader, theologian, and academic administrator at the University of Oxford. On 29 April he preached before the Long Parliament. In this sermon, and in his Country Essay for the Practice of Church Government, which he appended to it, his tendency to break away from Presbyterianism to the Independent or Congregational system is seen. Like John Milton, he saw little to choose between "new presbyter" and "old priest." He became pastor at Coggeshall in Essex, with a large influx of Flemish tradesmen. In March 1651, Cromwell, as Chancellor of Oxford University, gave him the deanery of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, and made him Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University in September 1652; in both offices he succeeded the Presbyterian, Edward Reynolds. During his eight years of official Oxford life Owen showed himself a firm disciplinarian, thorough in his methods, though, as John Locke testifies, the Aristotelian traditions in education underwent no change. With Philip Nye he unmasked the popular astrologer, William Lilly, and in spite of his share in condemning two Quakeresses to be whipped for disturbing the peace, his rule was not intolerant. Anglican services were conducted here and there, and at Christ Church itself the Anglican chaplain remained in the college. While little encouragement was given to a spirit of free inquiry, Puritanism at Oxford was not simply an attempt to force education and culture into "the leaden moulds of Calvinistic theology." Owen, unlike many of his contemporaries, was more interested in the New Testament than in the Old. During his Oxford years he wrote Justitia Divina, an exposition of the dogma that God cannot forgive sin without an atonement; Communion with God, Doctrine of the Saints' Perseverance, his final attack on Arminianism; Vindiciae Evangelicae, a treatise written by order of the Council of State against Socinianism as expounded by John Biddle; On the Mortification of Sin in Believers, an introspective and analytic work; Schism, one of the most readable of all his writings; Of Temptation, an attempt to recall Puritanism to its cardinal spiritual attitude from the jarring anarchy of sectarianism and the pharisaism which had followed on popularity and threatened to destroy the early simplicity. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I am not reviewing the book but this exact Kindle version.

That said, if you want to dig into the depths of Christ's death on the cross, this is a great place to start.
Rob Black
It has the reputation of being the best treatise ever written on the subject.

I am not reviewing the book but this exact Kindle version.

This book starts with a long and COMPLETE 70 paragraph+ Introduction by JI Packer. No other Kindle version of this book has this COMPLETE Introduction. Other Kindle versions of this book are completely missing this Introduction or have shortened it to a paragraph or two. You can read this introduction in the Sample version to see if you would prefer this version because of the Introduction.

This book is missing a Table of Contents. It just launches into BOOK I right after the Introduction. For this read, I do not believe this is the best Kindle version of this book. So much is lost without the TOC, in my opinion.

The best Kindle version of this book is the blue and white covered one with 21 reviews for $1.98. It has a linked TOC and justified nicely formatted paragraphs and pages. This Kindle version does NOT have any Introduction by JI Packer.

John Owen is a great theologian. In this book, Owen presents arguments against penal substitution and then demonstrates, from Scripture, the importance of penal substitution and how it affects one's understanding of God, the work of Christ, etc.
The only downside to this particular book is that it does not include J. I. Packers phenomenal introduction. Some have said that it is one of Packer's best works. If you want a summation of Reformed Theology versus Arminianism, then I would encourage you to buy the copy that has the introduction as well.

This is a review of this exact Kindle version and not of this book itself.

This is not the best Kindle version available. It does have a detailed TOC and links to the exact Book and Chapter. However, the formatting is not the easiest on the eyes. All the paragraphs are LEFT justified and so the right edges of the sentences are choppy. All books are JUSTIFIED to have each line be the same exact length and this helps with readability.

The best Kindle version of this book is the blue and white covered one with 21 reviews for $1.98. It has a linked TOC and justified nicely formatted paragraphs and pages.

This book is a slow read for most of us. Owen demands your full attention all through the book. At points you will need to reread to make sure you've got it. That said, if you want to dig into the depths of Christ's death on the cross, this is a great place to start.

Of course, the content being from John Owen is outstanding, but why would a title from Amazon's store not have a Table of Contents? I can get this material for free off the internet without a TOC. I expect more from Amazon!

This is not a book for the weak theologian or for a high school student. It has the reputation of being the best treatise ever written on the subject. For the reader of our day, it is not like reading a modern novel, but it is worth while for any Christian who will dig through. It is not a book that you can read in one setting; you must be serious about wanting to know more about The Death of Death............... I would recommend it for any serious seminary student or anyother one who is interested in the subject of the book.

I am not reviewing the book but this exact Kindle version. It has a Table of Contents but not a linked Table of Contents. Also the format has too much extra blank space between paragraphs and the paragraphs are oddly justified to the LEFT and have really choppy edges on the right because the paragraphs are not "JUSTIFIED" across the pages. All books are justified for easy readability but this one is not.

The best Kindle version of this book is the blue and white covered one with 21 reviews for $1.98. It has a linked TOC and justified nicely formatted paragraphs and pages.
