"Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak" (Matt. 26:41). These words, which Jesus spoke to his disciples in the garden of Gethsemane, serve as the foundation for John Owen's treatise Of Temptation. Owen preached on the subject of temptation frequently during his many years of service as the dean and vice chancellor of Christ Church in Oxford-- Of Temptation is the culmination of his discourses on the subject. In his treatise, Owen addresses the nature and power of temptation, the risk of entering into it, and the means of avoiding its danger. Owen defines temptation as anything with the ability to entice the Christian's mind or heart away from obedience to God and redirect it towards sin. Owen warns us that our power is not strong enough to protect us from temptation; rather, it is by God's power of preservation that we are saved. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer

PRODUCT DETAIL

John Owen

John Owen (1616-1683) was an early Puritan advocate of Congregationalism and Reformed theology. Educated at Queen's College, Oxford, he served under the Puritan government of Oliver Cromwell as personal chaplain to Cromwell and later as vice-chancellor of Oxford. A contemporary of John Bunyan, Owen's extensive body of work includes twenty-eight books on theological and devotional themes. His later years were spent in pastoral ministry where he served as the leading spokesman for the Protestant Nonconformists. His best known writings have been compiled in the encyclopaedic The Complete Works of John Owen (16 volumes) and The Book of Hebrews (7 volumes).-Editorial Review.
