Pneumatologia--or, 'Owen on the Holy Spirit,' as the
work has generally been called--is perhaps one of the best known, and
most highly esteemed of John Owen's treatises. Pneumatologia is divided into
five parts. The first part contains a general and
preliminary account of the Holy Spirit. The second part
addresses the operations of the Holy Spirit in the Old and New
Testaments. The third part discusses the doctrine of
regeneration. The fourth part addresses the doctrine of
sanctification, and the role of the Holy Spirit in it. The final part
contains arguments extolling the reader to holiness. This is a beloved
treatise, as John Newton once wrote to a correspondent: "We are
favoured with many excellent books in our tongue, but I with you agree in
assigning one of the first places as a teacher to Dr. Owen. I have just
finished his discourse on the Holy Spirit which is an epitome, if not
the masterpiece of his writings."
