About the Author
Dr. John Owen (1616-1683), theologian, was born of Puritan parents at Stadham in Oxfordshire in 1616. At twelve years of age he was admitted at Queen's College, Oxford, where he took his B.A. degree in 1632 and M.A. in 1635. During these years he worked with such diligence that he allowed himself but four hours sleep a night, and damaged his health by this excessive labour. In 1637 he was driven from Oxford by his refusal to comply with the requirements of Laud's new statutes. Having taken orders shortly before, he became chaplain and tutor in the family of Sir Robert Dormer of Ascot in Oxfordshire. At the outbreak of the civil troubles he adopted Parliamentary principles, and thus lost both his place and the prospects of succeeding to his uncle's fortune. For a while he lived in Charterhouse Yard, in great unsettlement of mind on religious questions, which was removed at length by a sermon which he accidently heard at St Michael's in Wood Street.

The author bluntly, yet with the heart of a loving pastor, confronts the lies that we have told ourselves and embraced, to allow sin to take up residence in our hearts.
It is not an "5 easy steps to beat sin" quick fix book full of fluff (like many modern authors pump out) offering an easy out just by mumbling a few words of a prefabed prayer....
It is an "in your face" treasure that will challenge and force one to truly:
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV
One cannot breeze through this book, it needs to be read "deeply" and methodically to grasp the full effect of this work.
