Summary

What role does faith play in our relationship with God? How does genuine faith influence a Christian's life? John Owen dedicates this collection of treatises to the study of faith--its nature and effects. The central focus of Owen's treatises is the "Trial of Faith," by which Owen understands genuine faith to imply four things. First, genuine faith implies that God saves us from sin. Second, genuine faith implies that the Christian accepts God's command for holiness and obedience. Third, genuine faith is preserved through worship and devotion. And finally, genuine faith incites repentance and other spiritual habits in the Christian. Owen relies on the Word of the Lord to guide his exploration of faith, citing numerous Bible passages on the subject. Owen challenges Christians to examine their faith and offers them tangible tools to strengthen their faith in places it might be lacking.
