Review:

Simonetta Carr's book on John Owen is a delightful introduction to his life for the very young. In the tradition of her earlier books on Calvin and Augustine, she retells Owen's story with flair and passion, and accompanies it with great illustrations which help to make his life and times vivid and exciting. Heartily commended! --Carl Trueman

Simonetta Carr's wonderful biography of John Owen is the third book in what I hope will be a growing collection of biographies of Christian heroes. In clear, unembellished language Carr chronicles the life of the Prince of Puritans through a tumultuous period of English history. This book manages to be simple without being shallow. Young readers will admire the integrity of Owen's conscience as a man living in a difficult time and relish the rich descriptions of Owen's theological genius. This is a masterful book. I trust that many others will follow. --Tedd Tripp

Owen was, and remains, a very important teacher of God's ways, and it is good to introduce young people to him. --J.I. Packer
