Book Description

Owen on the Holy Spirit, as this work has been known to generations of Christians, was written by the greatest theologian of the Puritan era. It is, without question, one of the truly great Christian books. Originally published in 1674 as Pneumatologia, or A Discourse Concerning the Holy Spirit, it is a massive work, taking up 650 pages in the Banner of Truth edition of Owen’s Works (volume 3).

It deals with the name, nature, personality, and operations of the Spirit, and urges the necessity of gospel holiness as distinct from mere human morality. The work is both doctrinal and pastoral in character. The very length and exhaustiveness of the original book could easily deter us from attempting to read it, but this abridged and modernised version, like the other Owen volumes in the Puritan Paperback series, will make Owen’s teaching more accessible to modern readers.

This edition has been abridged and made easy to read by Dr R. J. K. Law.

    This is the best book on the Holy Spirit I have ever read. I have marked and reviewed all the Scripture references and every point expands my knowledge of who the Holy Spirit is and what the Holy Spirit does.
    Please reprint this book quickly. I commit to purchase 10 books if not more. This book needs to be in the hands of every believer. Thank you.
