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.

Owen lays a solidly biblical foundation for what the nature of testing, temptation, our hearts and our enemy is before then going on to give practical steps we can take to avoid, resist, repulse and recover from temptation. You can't go wrong with the Puritans with their deep exegetical mining of the Scriptures coupled with their pinpointed heartfelt and pastoral application of the truth.
"He [who] tastes every day how gracious the Lord is...does not pine for the sweetness of forbidden things, which rally have [no sweetness]."
