Book Description

April 1 2012
"The Mortification of Sin" was written by John Owen, one of the best known of the Puritans. In "The Mortification of Sin," John Owen insisted on the importance of the Christian dealing effectively with their sinful tendencies and attitudes. He believed that God, through his Word and Spirit, had provided the guidelines and the power for this to be achieved. In "The Mortification of Sin," John Owen effectively dismisses various excuses for not engaging in self scrutiny and yet avoids the current trend of self absorption. In so doing he provides principles to help believers live lives of holiness. As with all of Owen's writings, "The Mortification of Sin" continues to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Need and Means to Cut Off Sin May 18 2010
By Mike Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
The new convert asked in frustration: "I am told every Sunday to be holy. I am admonished to be righteous and obedient. But how do I avoid sin?" Herein the great John Owen (1616-1683 Puritan theologian from Oxfordshire) gives an outstanding short treatise on the mortification of sin.

Owens explains: "When sin lets us alone we may let sin alone; but as sin is never less quiet than when it seems to be most quiet, and its waters are for the most part deep when they are still, so ought our contrivances against it to be vigorous at all times and in all ways"

"The Mortification of Sin" was written by the erudite scholar and outstanding Puritan John Owen who advocates the essential truth that the believer must put off sin, its entrapments and allurements. Through the Word and Spirit, God has supplied effective and potent spiritual resources for the Christian to grow in sanctification. This is an aged book penned by a Puritan, yet, or actually thus, it is powerful and effectual for the modern Christian. We all need the truth of scripture systematized in this mighty volume.

Owen asks: "Do you mortify? Do you make it your daily work? Be always at it whilst you live; cease not a day from this work; be killing sin or it will be killing you"
He adds: "The vigor and power and comfort of our spiritual life depends on our mortification of deeds of the flesh"
He is the author of the finest commentary on the Book of Hebrews; also a must read.

Owens warns: "The custom of sinning takes away the sense of it, the course of the world takes away the shame of it"

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book by a Great Leader Feb. 14 2011
By C. Lewton - Published on Amazon.com
John Owen knew what he was talking about. Christians don't read good books today. Even in Christian Universities the classics like "Mortification" are often neglected. This is a great book, revolving and knit with Scriptures that give us the upper hand in our daily walk with Christ!

5.0 out of 5 stars masterful answer to a difficult question Aug. 31 2013

This is required reading for all Christians or anyone who had questions on vital Christian doctrine. This is very helpful in overcoming sin and in the end, to please God and honor him and to give him glory.
