"To recover the old, authentic, biblical gospel, and to bring our preaching and practice back into line with it, is perhaps our most pressing present need. And it is at this point that Owen’s treatise on redemption can give us help."
John Owen towers over history as a theological giant, and for good reason. In The Death of Death In the Death of Christ, Owen mines the depths of Christ's redemptive work, presenting the riches of "authentic, biblical Gospel" even for those living in the 21st century. There's only one problem: "Owen travels through [his subject] with the elephant’s grace and solid step, if sometimes also with his ungainly motion” (p. 35). Thankfully, J.I. Packer has provided a brief, clear introduction that will help readers launch into Owen's work with confidence. And "if thou art, as many in this pretending age, a sign or title gazer...," then we hope this introduction to Owen will encourage you to dive deeper than ever before.
