Lovers of theology, and particularly of the Puritans, will welcome this English translation of John Owen's Latin writings. In William Goold's 24-volume edition of Owen's works, this is the one volume that had been unavailable to English readers for years.
Banner of Truth has reprinted the first 16 volumes plus the 7-volume commentary on Hebrews, but this volume has been available only in Latin until this edition was produced. The major portion of this volume is a history of theology from Adam to Christ.
It includes an appendix with Owen's Defence of Scripture against Fanaticism, affirming that the Bible is the perfect, authoritative, and complete Word of God. Owen considered this work his magnum opus.
Owen wrote 24 volumes, and only 23 have been available in reprint. Biblical Theology had been in Latin, and this is the first-ever English edition, translated by Dr. Stephen Westcott. It contains six sections, tracing theology from Adam to the time of Christ.
Appended is Owen's Defence of Scripture against Fanaticism, which has much to say in the current discussions with Charismatics.
"Published in Latin in 1661 as a contribution to international reformed scholarship, this treatise draws on a very wide range of learning. The final part, in particular, where Owen characterizes evangelical theology as a gift of the Holy Spirit generating faith in Christ, holiness through Christ, and worship of Christ, is pure gold. Those with a taste for Owen, or for theology, or (best of all) for both, will read this Puritan proto-Biblical Theology with joy." - J. I. Packer
