Reviews mostly by Dr Peter Masters
A new abridgement of John Owen's classic work rooted in Romans 7.21 (first published in 1667). This brings the great man's manual on fighting sin within manageable bounds for all readers. Here are the chapter headings for this most valuable work:'
(1) The Enemy Within; (2) The Law of Sin; (3) Sin in the Heart; (4) Enmity against God; (5) Aversion to Everything Good; (6) Lusts at War with God; (7) Captive to an Enraged Foe; (8) The Deceitfulness of Sin; (9) Prayer and Meditation Undermine Sin; (10) The Mind on Guard against Sin; (11) Keeping the Heart; (12) The Yielding of the Will; (13) God's Bridle on Sin; (14) Sin Breaking Out; (15) Blocking the Springs of Grace; (16) 'That Inbred Traitor, Sin'; (17) What the Law Can and Cannot Do.
The battle against personal sin is so central to the life of the believer, and this is surely a prince among books. This abridgement will be of very great help.
