Korean language

Lovers of theology, and particularly of the Puritans, will welcome this English translation of John Owen’s Latin writings. In William Goold’s 24-volume edition of Owen’s works, this is the one volume that had been unavailable to English readers for years. Banner of Truth has reprinted the first 16 volumes plus the 7-volume commentary on Hebrews, but this volume has been available only in Latin until this edition was produced.

The major portion of this volume is a history of theology from Adam to Christ. Appended to this important work is Owen’s Defense of Scripture against Modern Fanatacism. The Defense is an affirmation that the Bible is the perfect, authoritative, and complete Word of God. Owen also defends proper interpretation against what was known in his day as ‘inner light’, and what is so common in our day – subjective, experience-driven interpretation.

“One oddity merits mention. The lumbering style of Owen's English, with its weird words, Latinized word-order, labored and tortuous exactness, and often wearisome repet­itiveness, is well known. But his Latin is taut, brisk, clear and tidy, and in translation reads more easily than do his twisted paragraphs in his mother tongue.” -J. I. Packer, from the foreword

Editor’s Notes to the English Version

Appendix – A Defense of Scripture against Modern Fanatacism


"Published in Latin in 1661 as a contribution to international reformed scholarship, this treatise draws on a very wide range of learning. The final part, in particular, where Owen characterizes evangelical theology as a gift of the Holy Spirit generating faith in Christ, holiness through Christ, and worship of Christ, is pure gold. Those with a taste for Owen, or for theology, or (best of all) for both, will read this Puritan proto-Biblical Theology with joy." - J. I. Packer


John Owen (1616–1683), amongst the best known of the Puritans, was an English Puritan who served as vice-chancellor of Oxford University and pastor of congregations in Coggeshall and London. His writings continue to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.
