Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


The Death of Death in the Death of Christ is John Owen's definitive work on the extent of the atonement. As J.I. Packer has written, it is a "polemical work," designed to show among other things that "the doctrine of universal redemption is unscriptural and destructive of the gospel." It was called forth by the progress in England of Arminianism and the half-way house of Amyraldianism adopted by Baxter, Davenant and Usher. But the book is more than a polemic work. It has, at its center, a love of Christ and a conviction that Christ's work on the cross actually saved people from the deadly nature of sin. Anyone interested in the atonement should examine this work carefully--it will not disappoint!
