Item description for Life by His Death by J. Owen...
Overview John Owen was born in the year 1616, and grew up in a quiet Oxfordshire parsonage, entering Oxford University at the age of twelve, gaining B.A. in 1632 and M.A. in 1635. Owen is one of the most prominent theologians England has ever had. Owen's first book was published in 1642, and his last was passing through the press at the time of his death, in 1683. His published works include a total of twenty-four volumes. Oliver Cromwell used John Owen as his personal chaplain for some years, and had him preach to Parliament a number of times, from 1646 on. He pastored three churches during his lifetime. Owen married twice; his first wife died in 1676. He had eleven children, none of whom survived him. His grave is still preserved in the Bunhill Fields burial ground, City Road, London. The book The Death of Death in the Death of Christ, here presented in an easy-to-read version, was published by Owen in 1647. It is suggested that no one has ever succeeded in refuting the thesis that Owen here so fully expounds and defends from the Scriptures.

Simple, Succinct, Satisfying Apr 4, 2007
This book is great for better understanding the complete, perfect and effective nature of Christ's atonement, while also helping the reader to view in context passages including universal expressions such as "all", "every", "world", "whosoever".

If reading Owen is difficult them these are the books for you. This work is a simplified version of volume 10 and the single volume 'The Death of Death'. It has been simplified reorganised and shortened. However the theme and scope of the book is still intact. For whom did Christ die? What about universal verses such as John 3:16 and many more? These answers are within the grasp now of the majority of thinking Christians. This book still requires thought and careful study but is within reach and in modern English!
