Crossway’s Trackback Thursday – Overcoming Sin & Temptation

Today’s Trackback Thursday features one of the best books, in my opinion, on overcoming sin.  They are giving away a copy of John Owen’s Overcoming Sin and Temptation, edited by Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor.  Here’s what Crossway says:

Today’s trackback title is Overcoming Sin and Temptation by John Owen, ED. by Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor. John Owen’s three classic works on sin and temptation are profoundly helpful to any believer who seeks to become more like Jesus Christ.

“Do you mortify;
do you make it your daily work;
be always at it while you live;
cease not a day from this work;
be killing sin or it will be killing you.” (pp. 50)

Here’s a reminder of how Trackback Thursday works: Simply link to the blog post from your blog, leave a comment on Crossway’s Facebook Page, or re-tweet Trackback Thursday on Twitter @Crosswaybooks. Winners are picked on Friday morning.

There is a free (non-professional) unabridged audio version of Owen’s book The Mortification of Sin available here.
