Overcoming Sin and Temptation

I have heard so many great things about Puritan theologian John Owen but have not yet read any of his work. What better incentive than this deal from Justin Taylor at Between Two Worlds: Order Overcoming Sin and Temptation through its publisher, Crossway, and receive 40% off retail when you enter the code "BTWOW" at checkout. Plus, order any other book from Crossway and shipping is free--to me, that was an irresistible excuse to buy another book a great deal! Then get a free PDF of the book as well. Here are a couple of endorsements of Overcoming Sin and Temptation. I can't wait to read it.
"What Owen offers is not quick relief, but long-term, deep growth in grace that can make strong, healthy trees where there was once a fragile sapling. I pray that thousands—especially teachers and pastors and other leaders—will choose the harder, long-term path of growth, not the easier, short-term path of circumstantial relief.. . . We cannot properly estimate the blessing of soaking our minds in the Bible-saturated thinking of the likes of John Owen. What he was able to see in the Bible and preserve for us in writing is simply magnificent." —John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis

“No writer has taught me more about the dynamics of the heart and the deceitfulness of sin than John Owen. ...Read this book carefully; it will help you understand your heart and experience God’s grace.”—C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries
