4.57 of 5 stars 4.57  ·  rating details  ·  51 ratings  ·  6 reviews
The concept of sin and personal responsibility has all but disappeared from our world. John Owen deals with the nature of sinful humanity as no writer since has done as keenly or thoroughly, arguing that sin is always a self-deceiving, blinding folly.

I need to read this one again several times, really slowly. It's intensely concentrated nutrients, and just doesn't release well when gulped down at the usual rate.

John Owen was an English theologian and "was without doubt not only the greatest theologian of the English Puritan movement but also one of the greatest European Reformed theologians of his day, and quite possibly possessed the finest theological mind that England ever produced" ("Owen, John", in Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals, p. 494)
