On Temptation (audio)

ISBN: 9781646893683



Temptation is a real and constant struggle that every Christian has experienced and continues to face daily. John Owen defines temptation as anything that attempts to woo the Christian heart away from God and instead towards sin and disobedience. While man’s will alone does not have the power to resist, it is by learning to rely on God’s power that Christians can overcome the influence of temptation and the perils of sin. Owen discusses not only God’s great power, love, and protection for His children, but also enlightens Christians on how to accept these gifts and recognize when they are most needed. He also warns God’s children not to underestimate the power of temptation or the threat of sin. Detailing practical steps and admonitions, Owen here provides a valuable guide to living a spiritually healthy life and learning to lean on God for protection and strength. Wayne Evans brings his passion to every performance and is considered to be one of the top audiobook narrators in the industry.

John Owen

John Owen (1616–1683) is considered one of the most influential and inspiring theologians of the seventeenth century. He entered Queen's College, Oxford, at the age of twelve and completed his M.A. in classics and theology at the age of nineteen.

His first parish was at Fordham in Essex where he became convinced that the Congregational polity was the scriptural form of church government. In the 1640s he became chaplain to Oliver Cromwell, the new "Protector of England," and traveled with him on his expeditions to Ireland and Scotland.

In 1651 he was appointed dean of Christ Church and in 1652 made Vice-Chancellor of Oxford—positions which allowed him to train ministers for the Cromwellian state church. Owen later moved to London and led the Puritans through the bitter years of religious and political persecution—experiences which shaped his theological inquiry, pastoral reflection, and preaching. Owen authored one of the richest commentaries on the book of Hebrews, An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews which are also included in The Works of John Owen along with sermons and essays.
