The Mortification of Sin (audio)

ISBN: 9781646893690



John Owen’s genuine concern for his brothers and sisters in Christ is evident in each of his writings. In The Mortification of Sin, Owen describes the dangers to the soul that still exist even after finding faith in Jesus. While under the protection of Christ, temptation and sin still demand attention and provide threatening distractions. Owen provides a guide to help navigate this world and to learn to fight against sin with Christ’s help. Encouraging self-reflection and conviction, Owen also stresses the importance of relying on God’s strength in this battle. This fight requires alertness, focus, and discipline, but most importantly it requires faith in the power of Christ to fully eliminate sin and temptation. 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.
