'This battle will last more or less all our days.'

In this abridgement of a classic work, The Mortification of Sin, the famous Puritan John Owen shows the need for Christians to engage in a life-long battle against the sinful tendencies that remain in them, despite their having been brought to faith and new life in Christ.

Owen is very insistent that believers cannot hope to succeed in this battle in their own strength. He sees clearly that the fight can be won only through faith in Christ, and in the power of the Spirit. Fighting sin with human strength will produce only self -righteousness, superstition and anxiety of conscience. But with faith in Christ, and with the power of the Spirit, victory is certain. The temptations in times like Owen's and ours are obvious on every side; the remedy to them is clearly pointed out in this practical and helpful book.


'More than most of his writings, perhaps partly because of its brevity and powerful practical nature, The Mortification of Sin has continued to be one of Owen's most widely read and recommended books. Most readers feel it penetrates more deeply into their hearts than anything they have ever read outside of the pages of the Bible.' — SINCLAIR B. FERGUSON

'The first time I read Owen on Mortification…I sat on the bus weeping. And the recurring thought was, “This man knows my heart”. It was as if layers were being peeled away; it was uncomfortable reading. But it didn' t leave me crushed and despairing – there was grace woven into the detailed exposition, really of Romans 8:13. Powerful, heart searching, and convicting, but at the same time, Owen never leaves you bereft, he always leaves you with the awareness that where sin abounds, there's grace much more abounding.' — IAN HAMILTON
