Summary

The Death of Death in the Death of Christ is a polemical work,designed to show, among other things, that the doctrine of universal redemption is unscriptural and destructive to the Gospel. Those who see no need for doctrinal exactness and have no time for theological debates that show divisions between evangelicals may well regret its reappearance. Some may find the very sound of Owen's thesis so shocking that they will refuse to consider his book at all. It is to those who share this readiness that Owen's treatise is offered, in the belief that it will help us in one of the most urgent tasks facing evangelical Christendom today - the recovery of the Gospel.

Some mispronunciation, but the book is the best.

The Death of Death in the Death of Christ is perhaps my favorite uninspired book and I believe is still the best book out there on particular redemption.
The narration could have used some editing on this audiobook, to avoid such mistakes as "Galileans" instead of "Galatians." But the narrator's handling of 400+ year old theological terms did improve over the course of the book. Don't let this stop you from downloading it; there aren't many great Christian books on Audible concerning the true gospel of accomplished salvation in Christ, but this is one of the best.

Great Book on Particular Redemption!

John Owen, a Puritan, does a great job demonstrating how Scripture teaches us what manner God saves people and how so many people misunderstands this issue. Well worth the read.

Amazing book for every Christian.

This is probably the best studies on the death and fruits of Christ ever written. I'll need and want to listen to it over and over again.

the narration will suffice but is lacking...

chapter 8 at the two minute 25 second mark, the narrator says Philistines instead of Philippians. maybe John Owen had a 67th book in his Bible, or the narrator isn't familiar with Christian theology.

Great book, not so much for the narrator

This book makes Limited Atonement clear from both the biblical and logical perspective. He deals with the tough "all" texts too. Also it's the appropriate amount of reading the Scripture references and just referencing the verses. The narrator was rough though, mispronouncing Gospel as "gosapul"and the book of Job as "job"

A Christian classic ruined by the performer

This book is a must-read for Christians. Yet, how to review a wonderful book by a devout author when its performance is badly spoiled by the narrator? Eventually, I concluded that my rating "overall"and what Audible, strangely, calls "Story", ought not to be spoiled by the "Performance". The latter drove me to give up listening to the book long before the end. The publisher could surely have done much, much better. Thus, for now, I'll stick to the printed version - until someone is found to do justice to an excellent work.

Biblically Solid

You can tell that he has been fully convinced, and is willing to contend the truth no matter how it makes you feel. Was a solid, and well thought out book.

Significant Treatment Of Redemption

This will not be the most scintillating piece of literature you read or hear, but it’s significance in forming the theological framework for reformed views on the Definite Redemption nature of the sacrifice of Jesus is immense. This work argues that Christ actually purchased a specific number of persons in order to ensure that sins were actually paid for those foreknown and ordained by the sovereign choice of God apart from human choice or behavior. In order to make certain a group of redeemed persons would be ultimately saved from eternal punishment, it was necessary that persons be individually included. If God knows the numbers of our hair, then surely his election included thought to persons.

Bible Doctrine upheld

I enjoyed the words of John Owen and how he defeats the false idea of universal redemption. I needed a reminder of how Jesus is interceding for me. Such a comfort.
