Crossway Introduces the Collected Works of John Owen, Updated for Modern Readers
Regarded as one of the greatest theologians in history, 17th-century pastor John Owen wrote extensively on holiness, Scripture, the Trinity, missions, and ecclesiology. His classic works--which have inspired Christian thinkers including Charles Spurgeon, J. I. Packer, and John Piper--remain influential, but until now haven't been offered in an easy-to-read collection.
The Complete Works of John Owen is a 40-volume series that brings together all of Owen's original theological writing, reformatted for modern readers. Volume 7, The Holy Spirit: The Helper, includes the treatises "Reason of Faith"; "The Causes, Ways, and Means of Understanding the Mind of God as Revealed in His Word"; and "A Discourse of the Work of the Holy Spirit in Prayer." Exploring the topics of illumination, biblical interpretation, and extemporaneous prayer, it features 50 pages of helpful introductions by editor Andrew Ballitch, along with outlines, footnotes, and other supporting resources.
This series, published over the next 6 years, presents Owen's prolific work in an easy-to-read layout to reach and inspire a new generation of Bible readers and scholars to deeper faith.
