Mortification and Universal Holiness

Following up on yesterday’s post about heros, this is a message on the life of John Owen delivered by John Piper at the 1994 Bethlehem Conference for Pastors.

So many men that I admire (John Piper, Sinclair Ferguson, R.C. Sproul, J.I. Packer, Jerry Bridges etc.) have listed John Owen as an influence on their lives that I can’t help but want to learn more about the man. Sadly, I’ve read more books about John Owen than I have books by John Owen. His writing style is difficult to be sure, but what a reward for those who engage the man and his words and persevere.
