Priesthood Of Christ


Despite wide acclaim for John Owen (1616-1683) as the leading representative of the Reformed doctrine of particular atonement, a thorough examination of Owen’s views on the atonement has yet to be undertaken. This work is the first full-scale monograph on Owen’s atonement theology and therefore fills the apparent lacuna. Drawing on recent historiographical studies on the intellectual history of Protestant Orthodoxy and the full range of Owen’s writings, the author demonstrates that at the heart of Owen’s atonement theology is his peculiar understanding of Christ’s priesthood conceived in terms of the oblation and intercession of Christ, performed in the states of humiliation and exaltation.
