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.
