Christians are forever!(PDF) (La persévérance des saints (PDF))
The Perseverance of the Saints, written in 1654, is John Owen’s response to the mistaken teaching of one John Goodwin. However, Owen writes: “Mr. Goodwin's challenge was secondary to me; I felt the best course of action was to confirm with the scriptures alone the truth he objected to. This was my first intention; and I hope, by the grace of God, that the pious reader will find satisfaction in it. "
John Owen, born in 1616, is one of the most eminent theologians in the history of England. At the age of 12, he entered the University of Oxford from where he obtained a bachelor's degree in 1632 and a master's degree in 1635. For a few years, he served as personal chaplain to Oliver Cromwell, this which leads him to preach in Parliament on several occasions. He will also exercise pastoral ministry in three churches during his lifetime. His grave can still be seen in Bunhill Fields Cemetery, London.
