Abridged by James Houston from the writings of the Puritan theologian John Owen (1616-1683), Triumph Over Temptation helps us recover the concepts of sin and individual responsibility our world has all but destroyed. Owen deals with the problem of our sinfulness, showing that there is far more to indwelling sin than many of us realize. He goes on to describe the Holy Spirit's ministry in and to the believer, and the true nature of spiritual growth and progress. Owen embodied the best of Puritan devotion: the awe of God, humility, wisdom, and an awareness of God's grace.
