Abstract

John Owen’s star has slowly been on the rise since 2007, with at least six monographs devoted to his theology or context published since then. Still, much remains in the dark. Assessment of his Christology is still in its infancy and no one has yet given his pneumatology the consideration it deserves. Likewise, only faint whispers are being heard about Owen’s role in the development of the pactum salutis , and only recently has his profound debt to Aquinas attracted attention. Fortunately for students of Owen and seventeenth century theology alike, this useful collection of essays aids our understanding of these topics and more. Aiming to serve as an introduction and guide to Owen and his theology, the editors have arranged seventeen essays into sections addressing Owen’s method, theology, and its pastoral significance. The volume concludes with a comprehensive bibliography of both primary and secondary sources, making this one of the single best resources for those studying Owen. Given the breadth of topics addressed, I confine my remarks to two essays that further our understanding of Owen’s pneumatology and Christology on the one hand and the relation between nature and grace on the other.
