Temptation: Resisted and Repulsed (John Owen) Ratings: 0 - 0 votes


In this abridged and easy to read edition of John Owen’s classic work, the famous Puritan theologian opens up Matthew 26:41, carefully explaining what temptation is and what is involved in entering into it.

He then shows how Christ teaches two means for Christians to use to guard against this danger, namely watching and praying: 'These two', Owen says, 'comprise the whole endeavor of faith for the soul's preservation from tempation', and he insists that it is the duty of every believer to follow diligently Christ's instructions to avoid falling into temptation.

Owen helpfully applies his teaching, showing us how we can know whether we have entered into temptation, what practical steps should be taken to preserve our souls from entering into it, how to identify those particular times when people tend to enter into it, and the best ways of watching the heart itself.

Sinclair B. Ferguson has written: 'Many of Owen's readers have come away from reading him on such themes as temptation and indwelling sin feeling that Owen knew them through the through.' However, not only do Owen's penetrating insights open up areas of need in our own hearts, they also open up correspondingly profound assurances of grace in the Lord Jesus Christ.
