John Owen R.J.K. Law

John Owen was an English theologian and was without doubt not only the greatest theologian of the English Puritan movement but also one of the greatest European Reformed theologians of his day, and quite possibly possessed the finest theological mind that England ever produced Owen, John , in Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals, p 494

Comments Spiritual-Mindedness

  • Pete Williamson

    An excellent book for devotional reading. Reading Owen is like going to the doctor for a checkup - he will likely reveal that there is more wrong with you than you wanted to know, but in the end you can be confident that he knows what he's talking about and if you follow his instructions it will go well with you. Can't recommend this book enough!

  • Rachel Humphrey

    Owen's examination of Romans 8:6.

  • Alex

    I doubt I can express in words the greatness of this book. The immensity of the subject Owen deals with is infinite, as the object of our thoughts, as Christians, is infinite. That is Christ Jesus. While reading this book I saw my own serious lack in this area; I saw how much more I need to meditate on things above where Christ is, and to count as rubbish the painted beauties of this present world.What a great help and aid this book is to personal meditation on heavenly things. It is true to say [...]

    Much neededI have read several other works by John Owen. While The Mortification of Sin still remains my favorite, this one probably comes in second. I have never found Owen particularly easy to read, but the effort is well worth it. Essentially at every turn of the page there is practical, convicting, and deep insight. The book is an examination of Romans 8:6.

  • John Wise

    John Owen was an English Puritan and Oxford University administrator. He wrote Spiritual-Mindedness because he was deeply concerned about the dangers of worldliness. His work is blunt, hard-hitting, practical, and helpful.Favorite quote: "Everything in the world has no greater aim than to possess the hearts and minds of men."

  • Steve Alde

    I love this book. I am going through it a second time. It increases my love for and sense of awe of God and His gracious love shown through Christ Jesus. It also humbles me and motivates me to nurture within myself an ever increasing love and desire for God.

    46 11/28/13 'To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.' Romans 8:6So much clarity and practicality, so much depth and challenging truth. Really wonderful.

  • Vincent Kajuma

    We read this together in a church book club, forcing me to read it fairly closely.Of Owen's work, there is no disputing as to the spiritual help one can receive from this book. Of Mr. Appleby's abridgement of it, kudos for the easy, accessible language and capturing the gist his arguments quite reasonably and with remarkable simplicity. I had some qualms here and there, however, as one who read the abridgement alongside the original work (Goold's edition). In some places he skipped whole paragra [...]

  • Keith Feisel

    In his preface, John Owen (1616-1683) explains that he wrote this book because " the world is at present in a mighty hurry, and being in many places cast off from all foundations of steadfastness, it makes the minds of men giddy with its revolutions, or disorderly in the expectations of them. Hence, men walk and talk, as if the world were all, when comparatively it is nothing."Though written in the seventeenth century, Owen's words seem to speak directly to our time. THE GRACE AND DUTY OF BEING [...]

  • Jan Donegani

    Enjoying good preaching, praying fervently and earnestly in public, enjoying listening to others as they speak of spirtual things - all these are NOT signs of true spiritual thinking which is an evidence of new life in Christ. This is a challenging modern language summary of John Owen's 'The grace and duty of being spiritually minded'. Owen challenges us search our own hearts for evidence of spiritual thoughts, desires and delight in Christ springing up from within and often (if not most of the [...]

  • Kristy

    This was a very big help in kicking some bad habits of sin! Reading John Owen's style of writing was difficult at first but improved the more I continued reading it. He is a great puritan theologian indeed! I highly recommend this book because it will benefit the soul much.

  • Brian

    Read in 2004. Read abridgment in 2010. Reread unabridged version in 2016. Very important book. Will reread again, and again after that.

  • Tim Mallon

    A mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. John Owen expounds being spiritually minded with sound words. Highly recommended.

  • Asriel

    It is important to note that this is an abridgment of Owen's original work. Numerous sections were taken out of contextwhich, while teaching some truths, skewed Owen's overall themes and points.

  • Sid Sid

    good read.

  • David Donegani

    I enjoyed this abridgement edition of John Owen's classic both helpful and refreshing.

  • Kevin Roberts

    One of the books on my list to read each year. Great devotional thoughts that being conviction and resolve.
