Gospel Evidences of Saving Faith (Puritan Treasures for Today)
“This little book, which distills the great themes of John Owen's long and often complex treatises on the Christian life, has been overlooked for too long. Brian Hedges's careful and sensitive revision renews the force of its arguments. There could be no easier way to engage with Owen's theology of the Christian life in his four hundredth anniversary year.”See All

Although believers have a right to every spiritual comfort in Christ, remaining sin and temptation often hinder them from enjoying these blessings. In Gospel Evidences of Saving Faith, John Owen recognizes that faith “is the root on which all genuine comforts grow,” and these comforts “are ordinarily shared by believers in proportion to the evidences of true faith in their lives.” Owen investigates the proper operations of faith that demonstrate its genuineness, encouraging us to cling fast to Christ, pursue holiness, commune with God through worship, and bring our souls into a special state of repentance. Do you wish to glorify God more and have greater enjoyment in the comforts of Christ? Find inspiration in this pastoral consideration of the evidences of saving faith.
