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. 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, continues to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.

    " John Owen was a little overwhelming for me. But it leaves me with the urgency that I must mortify/kill my sin daily.. and let God's greatness be constant in my thoughts. If there be a day I think I am sinless and blameless and don't need God, Lord, deliver me from the power of sin! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eddie Britz | 2/16/2014

    " Powerful. Challenging. Cuts to the heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew Mcneill | 2/5/2014

    " Excellent book. A classic on how God has graciously provided the means of mortification so that we can overcome sin and Satan and live in communion with God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Henry | 1/30/2014

    " John Owen's work on mortification covers the seldom today treated topic of putting sin to death in a thorough and convincing manner, but it does require a lot of thought and hence is a bit slow to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Junior | 1/9/2014

    " We must be killing our sin or it will be killing us!! "

    " These two stars are for the abridged version (which this is). I think something was lost in the process of abridging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Al | 12/31/2013

    " Owen is always a tough read, but this book is well worth the time. As is true with the other Puritans, every page of writing is packed with scholarship and practical application. This is a useful book for ALL Christians, and multiple readings will reward the effort. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Buddy | 12/23/2013

    " I haven't finished this book yet, but from what I have read I would recommend it to anyone. I consider it one of the essential books to read if you want to understand how spiritual warfare. "

    " A young man's necessity! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mark Glidden | 11/28/2013

    " An unyieldingly dull book. One can surmise that the reason that there's no more Puritans is because they were all bored to death through reading Mr Owen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rb Tolar | 11/17/2013

    " Are you Christian? Read this! Owen nails the Christian's struggle against sin. A very readable version of his Puritan prose. "

    " A must read for every Christian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 2/3/2013

    " A marvelous sequel to "Indwelling Sin". Again, gives you a clear and concise understanding of "the flesh warring against the spirit." "

    " My second read. One of the best theological books ever written. "
