Despite his other achievements, Owen is best famed for his writings. These cover the range of doctrinal, ecclesiastical and practical subjects. They are characterized by profundity, thoroughness and, consequently, authority. Andrew Thomson said that Owen makes you feel when he has reached the end of his subject, that he has also exhausted it. Although many of his works were called forth by the particular needs of his own day they all have a uniform quality of timelessness. Owen s works were republished in full in the nineteenth century. Owen is surely the Prince of the Puritans. 'To master his works,' says Spurgeon, 'is to be a profound theologian.'

If you are willing to dive very deeply into spiritual knowledge then this is a profound book. Be prepared to dig very hard though. Owen is not interested in facile, superficial truths. You are required to bring your pickaxe and shovel; not for the faint of heart.
These books are a very hard read. This set was actually a Christmas gift for my father and i have had the opportunity to take some time to read some parts of the books. John Owen was a brilliant theologian and gifted with wisdom and discernment that came only from the Lord. These books will help edify the Christian who hungers for the "steak and prime rib" of Major Doctrines of Gods sufficient, infallible Word!
What of the most significant theologians from the English Puritanism. Erudite, exceedingly thorough, and spiritually rich. This is a must-have for those interested in deep theology with a concern for spiritual things.
This is one of the most valuable books ever written. John Owen is indeed the greatest among the Puritans. Thanks.
As best I can tell, this Kindle version is one large e-book with no a non-hyperlink Table of Contents. That makes this multiple volume work in Kindle so cumbersome, it is nearly useless. I would rate John Owen with 5 Stars, just not this Kindle version.
Great book, takes time to read it.
Can't say enough about America's greatest theologian. Great read and very insightful. If your desire is to have a true, correct and deep understanding of God's word and purpose, then you should put the Works of John Owen at the top of your reading list.
I was told by an Amazon rep that this was the "complete" works of this great theologian and pastor. In other words all 23 volumes that have been compiled. Unfortunately it is only a compilation of the titles of those works and some of his biographical history which is found in Volume 1 of the series. This is not worth the money in my opinion.
