The Enemy Within

Taking the time honored works of John Owen and transposing them to modern life, Kris Lundgaard’s The Enemy Within is a wake up call to any believer today who does not take personal holiness seriously. Distilling the 17th Century prose of Owen is no small task, and Lundgaard has done well in bringing the truths at the heart of Owen to the current day reader. Sometime light hearted, sometimes serious, this work portrays holiness as a work of God in us, even as we strive for it for His glory. Our responsibility to live for God is not lessened by our inability to do that without Him giving us the ability to live for Him. Strong on God’s sovereignty and strong on His grace, The Enemy Within is a essential read for any follower of Christ, who desires to serve Him faithfully and completely.
