Publisher's Summary

Written by John Owen, one of the best known of the Puritans. In The Mortification of Sin, John Owen insisted on the importance of the Christian dealing effectively with their sinful tendencies and attitudes. He believed that God, through his Word and Spirit, had provided the guidelines and the power for this to be achieved. Owen effectively dismisses various excuses for not engaging in self scrutiny and yet avoids the current trend of self absorption. In so doing he provides principles to help believers live lives of holiness. As with all of Owen's writings, continues to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.

    "Hits Home"

    Fantastic book for any true believer in the God of the bible and His Christ.
    It truly points to the heart of the evil that all endure and must live with and speaks to the heart the way and means to control the evil that lies within us all even the saved. It will certainly remind you what you "must" do each and everyday to deal with the pain of sin in ones life John Owen does not mix words and it's as though he's speaking directly to you the individual listening to this one of a kind.
    I MOST HIGHLY recommend it, even to those who think they've got a handle on their sinfulness.

    "Immensely Helpful"

    This book is a masterpiece on the topic of the putting to death of sin in the Christian life. I would recommend it to every Christian who can deal with a little older English. If not, there's a modernized version in print. This audiobook is excellently read and not overly long or short. I've listened through 3 times now and will likely do so again. Seriously, buy it Christian!

    "Striking and weighty"

    narrator had a tall task to capture the depth and concepts considering the dated language. but the content is worth the work.

    "great introduction into Puritan authors."

    I thought is was and excellent book and, although I was slightly intimated by the older language, it was fairly easy to follow along with if you're actively listening.

    "Great Biblical Analysis of the Depravity of Man"

    This book clearly outlines and defines what sin is and gives a biblical case and argument that it is the duty of all believers to kill daily sin in their life for their own sake. this book really exhausts the definition and workings of sin and is a very helpful reminder that indwelling sin will never die and we will never be perfect in this lifetime. Therefore it is the duty of the believer to follow Romans
    8:13 putting to death the deeds of the flesh.

    This book was written if the 1600s and the language is very proper and articulate which is a good thing but could be challenging to some. However the content is packed with biblical observations and cross references. the author really has great hermeneutics in how he sets his "treatise" down.

    A must read if you are battling sin or want to understand how indwelling sin affects a believer.

    "Old English challenging"

    The old English requires concentration to follow if you aren't used to it like I was! But the message is definitely valuable and I was encouraged and enlightened in abhorring sin and applying the gospel to the mortification of it.
