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.'
Despite his other achievements, Owen is best famed for his writings. These cover the range of doctrinal, ecclesiastical and practical subjects. They are characterized by profundity, thoroughness and, consequently, authority. Andrew Thomson said that Owen 'makes you feel when he has reached the end of his subject, that he has also exhausted it.' Although many of his works were called forth by the particular needs of his own day they all have a uniform quality of timelessness. The Banner of Truth Trust has reprinted his Works in twenty-three volumes.

This edition is really nice because the language is updated to modern English. This is the #1 book I give to friends. And I ask that they simply read chapters 1 and 2. This is good advice, because it seems quite doable to just read two small chapters. Seriously, if they would just read those two chapters, they would be saved from so much modern religious nonsense that goes on in churches. This book addresses many of the modern errors of Evangelicalism. It makes a solid case that Jesus is the antidote to the inventions of men who would create a Christless religion (and who would do so in the name of Christ -- yes, Owens predicts that too).
Just read the first two chapters of this book, and you will be so pleased.
I thought that I knew something of the glory of Christ, but upon reading this, it showed me Mr. John Owen's remarkable gift of God in pulling Scripture into his bosom and projecting it through his own God given understanding for the world to profit by.
This book will have you meditating on the Word of God and Christ's matchless and supreme glory, majesty and beauty all day long.
