As usual with Owen, I found this book to be both interesting yet difficult to comprehend.
Gregory D. Metcalf
In truth, the Puritans had a passionate love for life, were outgoing and sociable, and had a deep appreciation for aesthetic beauty.
Paul Dulaney
And so this book is sooooooooo good on teaching us how to have victory and mortify those sins.

Can it really be that in the decade or so that Amazon has been online that no one has submitted a review of this book? The very thought saddens me. [Correction: There are two reviews of The Complete Works of John Owen which have been there since 2000/01.] When C. S. Lewis recommended that you intersperse the reading of modern books with old books, I'm sure he had in mind books like this. As an English Puritan of the 17th century, Owen looked at life differently than we do today, and if there is one English Puritan whose wisdom and scholarship towers above the rest, it is Owen.

Mencken defined Puritanism as "the haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy." This wrong-headed view, characteristic of an entire generation of scholars and social critics, has been largely discredited but still retains its strength in the collective consciousness of our culture. In truth, the Puritans had a passionate love for life, were outgoing and sociable, and had a deep appreciation for aesthetic beauty. But they did take their God and their duties to Him seriously, and that can be seen in this remarkable book.

Let us assume for the sake of argument that the following premises apply to you:
1. You love God.
2. You know that God hates sin.

Given the truth of these premises, how would you live your life?

Owen affirmed the truth of these premises, as do many of us who call ourselves Christians. But unlike most of us, he really took the matter of sin and temptation seriously. Learn from him. Surprisingly enough, this is an inspiring book, not a depressing one. It is inspiring because Owen talks about critical matters of the heart that no one in your church or in the contemporary Christian publishing scene is talking about.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By P. J. Valk on February 2, 2009
Format: Hardcover
- On the Mortification of Sin
- On Temptation
- On Indwelling Sin in Believers
- Exposition of Psalm 130

Owen's treatise of Psalm 130 focuses on God's forgiveness of sin, the heart of the Christrian faith. It is probably Owen's most practical and best readable work for the common reader.

Title: Temptation and Sin

Edition: 8th Printing
Pages: 648
Genre: Non-Fiction - Theology

Be killing sin or it will be killing you! Owen must have gotten this idea from the Apostle Paul, "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." (Romans 8:13, NKJV)

Owen's volume Temptation and Sin is probably one of the best, if not the best book, apart from the Bible on putting to death the deeds of the body. Of course the deeds of the body refer to sin. I make this statement because of the depth and clarity Owen gives to the doctrine of Sanctification. His use of Scripture, exhortation, edification, and encouragement is a major benefit to the believer who struggles with sin.

The purpose of the author if found in his opening sentence in the Preface. Owen writes, "I shall in a few words acquaint thee with the reasons that obtained my consent to the publishing of the ensuing discourse. The consideration of the present state and condition of the generality of professors, the visible evidences of the frame of their hearts and spirits, manifesting a great disability of dealing with the temptations among themselves, they are encompassed, holds the chief place amongst them."

Owen reinforces this opening statement with these words, "That what I have of direction to contribute to the carrying on of the work of mortification in believers may receive order and perspicuity...and reduce the whole to an improvement of the great evangelical truth and mystery contained in them.
