Crossway Introduces the Collected Works of John Owen, Updated for Modern Readers

Regarded as one of the greatest theologians in history, 17th-century pastor John Owen wrote extensively on holiness, Scripture, the Trinity, missions, and ecclesiology. His classic works—which have inspired many Christian thinkers including Charles Spurgeon, J. I. Packer, and John Piper—remain influential, but until now haven’t been offered in an easy-to-read collection.

The Complete Works of John Owen is a 40-volume series that brings together all of Owen’s original theological writings, reformatted for modern readers. Volume 28, edited by Andrew M. Leslie, includes a variety of Owen’s treatises, sermons, short letters, and tracts. These works cover scriptural, sacramental, and ecclesiological topics, including the integrity of Scripture, identifying and responding to habitual sin, and the importance of devotion and worship. Along with extensive introductions by the editor, this volume includes outlines, footnotes, and other supporting resources.

This landmark series—which will be published over a number of years—presents Owen’s prolific work in an easy-to-read layout to reach and inspire a new generation of Bible readers and scholars to deeper faith.

  • Edited and Formatted for Modern Readers: Presents Owen’s original writing, newly typeset with text breaks, headings, and footnotes
  • Insightful Introductions and Outlines: Provide historical, theological, and personal context, as well as an explanation of pastoral debates up to and following each work
  • Part of the Complete Works of John Owen Collection: 40 hardcover volumes will release over a number of years and include material not previously published
  • Perfect for Churches and Schools: Invites students, pastors, theologians, and those interested in the Holy Spirit and the Puritans to explore worship and ecclesiology, gain a Christ-centered vision, and pursue holiness
