Indwelling Sin in Believers

Indwelling Sin in Believers

John Owen's Indwelling Sin in Believers is a guide to knowing our enemy, a
field-manual for the lifelong war Christ's soldiers must wage against the sin
that remains in them after conversion. Like an experienced general, Owen sets
out the strategy and tactics of indwelling sin with unrivalled insight and
clarity.

Based on Romans 7:21, I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is " present with me, Owen's work shows that sin is a powerful inward law or " principle lodged in the heart whose whole nature is enmity against God. This
powerful river, flowing from the Fall, can only be brought under control by
regenerating grace. However, sin's enmity remains in believers after
conversion, and the long war against it is one in which all Christians must
engage.

Though this is a book about sin, it is no less about the all-sufficient grace
of Christ. There is much here to strengthen and comfort the believer. Owen
never lets us think tht we must depend on our own unaided efforts. Nor are we
sent to the law for help, since defeating sin is something the law cannot do.
Our victory lies in seeing to it that the springs of grace remain open, and
that communion with God in christ remains our joy and delight.

This abridgement seeks to make Owen more accessible to present-day readers, but
carefully retains the essence of his thought and as many as possible of his own
expressions. It is a companion volume to The Mortification of Sin and
Temptation Resisted and Repulsed, also published by the Trust in the same
series.
