Book Description

Few subjects have received less attention from contemporary Christian writers than that of apostasy. The idea that professing Christians may prove not to be true Christians is, in many respects, too serious a prospect for our facile age. But, for John Owen, such avoidance of the issue was itself a pressing reason for writing on it at length and in great depth of spiritual analysis. His exposition is a masterpiece of penetration and discernment.

Now, in this modernised abridgement of Owen’s work, Dr. R. J. K. Law makes its powerful teaching readily accessible to modern readers. Some will find its pages deeply soul-searching; others will be struck with the clarity of Owen’s insight; all will find a work which wounds in order to heal.

    Today, John Owen’s book is as actual as it has ever been. Owen perfectly points out the awful danger of apostasy from the Gospel, its truths, its doctrines and its commands. He solemnly warns the Christian against apostasy, which today is more threatening than ever. A must-read for every church member and minister to be armed against the delusions of the false church. The abridgement by R. J. K. Law is easy to read.
