Life by His Death (PDF) (La vie par sa mort (PDF))
“There are some clues these days showing a resurgence of interest in Bible theology: a new readiness to test tradition, to scrutinize the Scriptures… It is up to those who share the eagerness that this Owen treatise is offered, with the conviction that it will help us in one of the most urgent tasks facing the evangelical Christian world today - the recovery of the gospel. "- J. I. Packer
La vie par sa mort ( The Death of Death in the Death of Christ ) was published in 1647. It seems that no one has succeeded in refuting the thesis defended by Owen, which he defends brilliantly on the basis of the Scriptures.
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 Olivier Cromwell's personal chaplain, 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.
