Owen's book, Doctrine of Justification by
Faith, is a Puritan account of the doctrine of
justification. Owen relies on biblical teaching and
historical dialogue to expound the doctrine of
justification. This volume opens with a comprehensive
look at the historical status of the doctrine of
justification stemming back to the early church. In the
following sections of the book, Owen explores the nature,
object, and causes of faith. This provides the
foundations for his later discussion on the important role faith plays
in justification. Owen argues for the imputation of Christ's
righteousness as the ground of justification and refutes objections to
his position. Finally, Owen draws upon several passages from the Bible
which support his interpretation of justification. Owen's exposition on
the topic of justification is unique in that his pastoral experience is
evident in his treatment of the text; as a result, his style of
presentation is appreciated by a wide variety of readers, not just
scholars in the field.
