Item description for Apostasy from the Gospel (Puritan Paperbacks: Treasures of John Owen for Today's Readers) by John Owen...

Few subjects have recieved less attention from contemporary Christian writers than that of apostasy. The idea that professing Christians may prove not to be true Christians is, in many respects, too serious a prospect for our facile age. But, for John Owen, such avoidance of the issue was itself a pressing reason for writing on it at length and in great depth of spiritual analysis. His exposition is a masterpiece of penetration and discernment.

Publishers Description
The idea that 'professing' Christians may prove not to be true Christians is a deeply disturbing one. In this modernised abridgement of John Owen's famous work, Dr R. J. K. Law makes its powerful teaching readily accessible to modern readers.

More About John Owen

John Owen John Owen (1616-1683) was an early Puritan advocate of Congregationalism and Reformed theology.

Born at Stadhampton, Oxfordshire, Owen was educated at Queen's College, Oxford, where he studied classics and theology and was ordained. Because of the "high-church" innovations introduced by Archbishop William Laud, he left the university to be a chaplain to the family of a noble lord. His first parish was at Fordham in Essex, to which he went while the nation was involved in civil war. Here he became convinced that the Congregational way was the scriptural form of church government. In his next charge, the parish of Coggeshall. in Essex, he acted both as the pastor of a gathered church and as the minister of the parish. This was possible because the parliament, at war with the king, had removed bishops. In practice, this meant that the parishes could go their own way in worship and organization.

Oliver Cromwell liked Owen and took him as his chaplain on his expeditions both to Ireland and Scotland (1649-1651). Owen's fame was at its height from 1651 to 1660 when he played a prominent part in the religious, political, and academic life of the nation. Appointed dean of Christ Church, Oxford, in 1651, he became also vice-chancellor of the university in 1652, a post he held for five years with great distinction and with a marked impartiality not often found in Puritan divines. This led him also to disagreement, even with Cromwell, over the latter's assumption of the protectorship. Owen retained his deanery until 1659. Shortly after the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660, he moved to London, where he was active in preaching and writing until his death. He declined invitations to the ministry in Boston (1663) and the presidency of Harvard (1670) and chided New England Congregationalists for intolerance. He turned aside also from high preferment when his influence was acknowledged by governmental attempts to persuade him to relinquish Nonconformity in favor of the established church.

His numerous works include The Display of Arminianism (1642); Eshcol, or Rules of Direction for the Walking of the Saints in Fellowship (1648), an exposition of Congregational principles; Saius Electorum, Sanguis Jesu (1648), another anti-Arminian polemic; Diatriba de Divina Justitia (1658), an attack on Socinianism; Of the Divine Original Authority of the Scriptures (1659); Theologoumena Pantodapa (1661), a history from creation to Reformation; Animadversions to Fiat Lux (1662), replying to a Roman Catholic treatise; Doctrine of Justification by Faith (1677); and Exercitationes on the Epistle to the Hebrews (1668-1684).

Reviews - What do customers think about Apostasy from the Gospel (Puritan Paperbacks: Treasures of John Owen for Today's Readers)?

Every Christian Should Read  Dec 7, 2007
This books examines what the Church today and in it's history has ignored "Apostasy", mainly those false doctrines, those who call themselves "christians" but by their fruit and results arent. As with every Owen work, exposition is clear and his knowledge of God's Word is incredibly shown. Although he was writing against the biggest apostasy of his time (which still lingers in ours) Roman Catholic Church, it's principles are applicable to the whole dispensation of the Church.

Other good books I have find on this theme are The Truth War, John MacArthur which takes an historical as well as a modern view of the apostasies of our times. Also JC Ryle's 1800's classic "Warnings to the Churches". We often forget the many warnings our Lord gave against false teachers, doctrines, etc. they fill the whole of scripture. Our biggest discernment tool like JC Ryle once wrote is pure Bible study, diligence in searching Him in the Scriptures.
