About the Book

Sin and Temptation helps us recover the concepts of sin and individual responsibility our world has all but destroyed. John Owen, an English statesman and theologian of vast learning, has dealt with the nature of sinful humanity as no writer has done as keenly or thoroughly, arguing that sin is always a self-deceiving, blinding folly. Owen embodied the best of Puritan devotion: the awe of God, humility, wisdom, and an awareness of God's grace. J.I. Packer's introductory essay describes how Owen's writings shaped his own spiritual vision. - Back cover.
