John Owen - The Mortification of Sin in Believers
The Mortification of Sin in Believers is perhaps the most popular treatise by my favorite English Puritan, Dr. John Owen. Gird your loins when going into this one, as Dr. Owen carefully examines and exposes the secret motives of the heart, in the case of unmortified sin; he has no reservations about laying conviction where necessary and exposing the darker recesses of the soul to Scripture light. After making the case for the killing of sin, he then lays out the Biblical remedy for accomplishing this end. First published in 1656, this classic work has endured, and it remains in print to this day.
