Details

Este libro es una obra polémica diseñada para demostrar entre otras cosas, que la doctrina de la expiación universal no tiene fundamento escritural y es destructiva al evangelio. Aquellos que no ven ninguna necesidad para una pureza doctrinal y no tienen tiempo para los debates teológicos que ponen de manifiesto las divisiones entre los así llamados evangélicos, quizás se negarán a leer este libro. Los prejuicios son una cosa que apasiona y somos todos muy orgullosos de nuestras propias creencias teológicas. Sin embargo, es de esperarse que la publicación de este libro encuentre lectores con una actitud más abierta.

Hoy en día hay evidencias del surgimiento de un nuevo interés por la teología de la Biblia, una nueva disposición a examinar las tradiciones, a escudriñar las escrituras y a pensar profundamente acerca de la fe. Es a aquellos que comparten esta disposición a quienes ofrecemos esta edición del tratado del Dr. Owen. Creemos que nos será útil para una de las tareas más urgentes que el cristianismo evangélico enfrenta hoy en día, es a saber, la recuperación del evangelio.

Author Bio

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.
