John Owen: The Man and his Theology

$16.99 $14.50

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?  His varied charges were to be, 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.”
