This book is delightful, both in its illustrations and in the way it presents the Puritan John Owen. While far from perfect, Owen was a man who lived in a tumultuous time, and through it he tried to live faithfully before God. Simonetta Carr wonderfully takes readers on a brief journey through Owen's life, a journey that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
KELLY M. KAPIC, Professor of Theological Studies, Covenant College

Owen was, and remains, a very important teacher of God's ways, and it is good to introduce young people to him.
J. I. PACKER, Professor of Theology, Regent College

Simonetta Carr's wonderful biography of John Owen is the third book in what I hope will be a growing collection of biographies of Christian heroes. In clear, unembellished language Carr chronicles the life of the "Prince of Puritans" through a tumultuous period of English history. This book manages to be simple without being shallow. Young readers will admire the integrity of Owen's conscience as a man living in a difficult time and relish the rich descriptions of Owen's theological genius. This is a masterful book. I trust that many others will follow.
TEDD TRIPP, Pastor of Grace Fellowship Church and author of Shepherding a Child's Heart

Simonetta Carr's book on John Owen is a delightful introduction to his life for the very young. In the tradition of her earlier books on Calvin and Augustine, she retells Owen's story with flair and passion, and accompanies it with great illustrations which help to make his life and times vivid and exciting. Heartily commended!
CARL R. TRUEMAN, Professor of Historical Theology and Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
