Christians Are Forever by John Owen
John Owen (1616-1683) wrote The Doctrine of the Saints Perseverance Explained and Confirmed, which he subtitled also The certain permanency of their acceptation with God and their sanctification from God manifested and proved, in 1654. Here is a modern English version of the same, somewhat abridged. The book was a reply to the erroneous teaching of a certain Mr John Goodwin. But Owen writes: 'The confutation of Mr Goodwin was but secondarily in my eye; the best way for that I judged to consist in a full Scriptural confirmation of the truth he opposed. That I chiefly intended; and therein I hope the pious reader may, through the grace of God, meet with satisfaction.'
