Gentlemen,

Reformation Heritage is publishing a new boxset that includes 10 of John Owen's works. They state:

This 5 volume box set includes the following 10 titles by John Owen – abridged and sympathetically modernized for today’s reader:

  • The Spirit and the Church
  • Duties of Christian Fellowship
  • Communion With God
  • The Mortification of Sin
  • The Holy Spirit
  • Temptation: Resisted and Repulsed
  • The Glory of Christ
  • Searching Our Hearts in Difficult Times
  • Indwelling Sin in Believers
  • Apostasy from the Gospel

While I have certainly read John Owen (especially on Hebrews), I cannot say I have read any of his works cover to cover. I would like to read more from him. And I am wondering what others think about this box set. Are these some of his most important works?

John Owen is a wonderful Bible scholar.
I note that the titles in this set are abridged. That concerns me.

We have it for $94 at the moment. And one correction, it is actually the Banner of Truth that published it. They have released some of their Puritan Paperbacks in a limited edition box set.


Here is the other limited edition set:

The set includes many of his more 'practical' works and though abridged get across the spirit and substance of Owen's piercing practical evangelical theology. If one is looking for a taste of Owen and some of the ripest material touching various aspects of the Christian life, this is probably a good set to get. That said, it doesn't include his other work on the Person of Christ, his full work on the Holy Spirit, his work on justification, nor his controversial and full ecclesiastical writings, much less his commentary on Hebrews or Theologoumena Pantodapa. Hard to say any work of his is less important when he engages so many departments of theology in his usual majestically profound way. I think there's a reason that Presbyterian, Congregational, Baptist, and Anglican divines throughout the 18th to 20th Centuries referenced him so profusely and and reverentially as the great and learned Dr. Owen.
