Lovers of theology, and particularly of the Puritans, will welcome this English translation of John Owen's Latin writings. In William Goold's 24-volume edition of Owen's works, this is the one volume that had been unavailable to English readers for years. Banner of Truth has reprinted the first 16 volumes plus the 7-volume commentary on Hebrews, but this volume has been available only in Latin until this edition was produced.
The major portion of this volume is a history of theology from Adam to Christ. Appended to this important work is Owen's Defense of Scripture against Modern Fanatacism. The Defense is an affirmation that the Bible is the perfect, authoritative, and complete Word of God. Owen also defends proper interpretation against what was known in his day as 'inner light', and what is so common in our day "" subjective, experience-driven interpretation.
