The Works of John Owen, Volume 3: The Holy Spirit

Owen, John

Product Description

Despite his other achievements, Owen is best famed for his writings. These cover the range of doctrinal, ecclesiastical and practical subjects. They are characterized by profundity, thoroughness and, consequestly, authority. Andrew Thomson said that Owen ‘makes you feel when he has reached the end of his subject, that he has also exhausted it.’ Although many of his works were called forth by the particular needs of his own day they all have a uniform quality of timelessness. Owen’s works were republished in full in the nineteenth century. Owen is surely the Prince of the Puritans. ‘To master his works’, says Spurgeon, ‘is to be a profound theologian.’

This Discourse Concerning the Holy Spirit is divided into five sections that deal with:

  • the name, nature, personality and mission of the Holy Spirit (in which Owen refutes the Socinian teaching)
  • the operations of the Holy Spirit under the Old Testament
  • the Spirit's work under the New Testament
  • the work of the Spirit in sanctification
  • the necessity of holiness and obedience
