Author: Owen, John (1616-1683)
As a preacher, the value of John Owen--the renowned Puritan
theologian--has not been appreciated to a sufficient degree. Well
respected in his day for his preaching, Owen's renown has dwindled since
then. (Perhaps the importance of his other
impressive works has diverted
attention away from his Sermons.) Nevertheless, this is a shame
Owen's Sermons are wonderfully crafted and quite powerful.
style of his sermons provides a nice complement to his many theological
treatises. They clearly display the ability Owen had to capture the
attention of an audience in order to teach them the great
truths of the gospel. This particular volume brings together not only
sermons Owen delivered during his life, but a series of posthumously
published sermons as well. John Owen's Sermons should reestablish
as an impressive preacher; they will not disappoint!
