John Owen (1616-1683) was vice-chancellor of Oxford University and served as advisor and chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. Among the most learned and active of the Puritans in seventeenth-century England, he was accomplished both in doctrine and practical theology
Joel R. Beeke (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) has written over one hundred books. He is president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary; a pastor of the Heritage Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan; the editor of Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth; the editorial director of Reformation Heritage Books; the president of Inheritance Publishers; and the vice president of the Dutch Reformed Translation Society.
"Owen ranks at the top of the classic Reformed writers whose reading of Scripture have most shaped my own faith and practice. He discloses points that I often miss, and he does so in a heart-igniting way that makes truth both enjoyable and edifying. Until now, trudging through the outdated format of Owen's work has been a daunting task. I am thrilled to see this new edition of his complete works. If you want a faith that is as much for the heart as the mind, then read Owen!"
--Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
"John Owen was a preacher, pastor, and profound theologian who plumbed the depths of Scripture to uncover the riches of the wisdom of our triune God. The republication of his works is a blessing to everyone in the church because we can benefit from his God-glorifying labors. Expertly introduced and annotated, this edition of Owen's works affords new generations of readers the privilege of profiting from the Prince of Puritans."
--J. V. Fesko, Harriet Barbour Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary
"The appearance of these forty volumes deserves to be heralded as one of the major Christian publishing events of our time. It surely indicates that Owen, whose writings were little known until resurrected in the 1960s, is here to stay among the ranks of the greatest theologians ever to work on English soil. This new edition has been carefully and informatively edited by a team of scholars who not only stand on the shoulders of past editors but take their earlier labors a step further. Their work and the layout of these volumes will help readers more easily appreciate Owen's towering intellect and grasp the power of his theological reasoning, pastoral insight, and spiritual wisdom. This edition will bring fresh delight to those who are already familiar with him. At the same time, less experienced readers, on their first ascent of Mount Owen, will be helped to enjoy new views: of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; of the gospel, the church, and themselves; and of the life of grace and faith. Here the theological air is indeed bracing, and the climb can be challenging to both the mind and the spirit, but with these volumes in hand, the experience should prove unforgettable."
--Sinclair B. Ferguson, Chancellor's Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries
"This highly ambitious project by Crossway and the editors is truly breathtaking, presenting us with a modern and usable critical edition of John Owen's complete works. A remarkable number of hours have gone into editing the works of a remarkable theologian. You are reading not a mere reprint but an edition that familiarizes readers with both the theological and historical context in which Owen wrote, and also the rhetorical style of the so-called Prince of the Puritans."
--Mark Jones, Senior Pastor, Faith Presbyterian Church, Vancouver, British Columbia
"Through the good work of Lee Gatiss and Shawn Wright, Owen's works are being brought out in a new forty-volume set, with fresh typesetting and formatting, to make his work more readable today. (One entire volume of indices makes the whole set accessible!) Owen has long been one of the most admired of the Puritan fathers, providing help on everything from fighting sin to understanding the cross. The thought of more people reading his work today makes my heart sing!"
--Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC
