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
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!
