Product Description

The chapters of this book were originally delivered as papers at a symposium on the life and teaching of John Owen at the John Owen Centre for Theological Study, London, England. John Owen's life from 1616 until 1683 spans one of the most momentous epochs in the history of Britain. How should we assess this man of so many talents, in turn a country pastor, an army chaplain, head of an Oxford college and vice-chancellor before becoming a leader among the persecuted Nonconformists? Beginning with an overview of his life and the times he lived in, the contributors to the symposium consider various aspects of John Owen's theology and the impact that his work had on his own day and ours. As Carl R. Trueman states in his paper, "I do wish to commend Owen to students, ministers, and thoughtful Christians in general, as a good example of how theology can be done in a serious and profound manner."

    The essays in this slim volume are superb. Each one had its merits. I really appreciated Carl Trueman's piece on Owen's theology (very good summary of key points) and Haykin's review of Owen's response to Quakerism. Fascinating stuff. But I particularly got much from Ferguson's two essays that form the centre of the book. Ferguson brings the Puritan's thoughts alive and explains them so that the reader appreciates why Owen is important to our day. There is no heresy, only the same old same old. The heresies Owen tackled in his day are still with us. Study how Owen refuted them and learn from a master how to refute the bad ideas, false readings of the gospels, and distortions of the truth that plague us to this hour.
