Knowing Sin (Jones)

SKU 9780802425195


Seeing a Neglected Doctrine Through the Eyes of the Puritans


Know your enemy.


We don't talk a lot about sin these days. But maybe we should. The Puritans sure did--because they understood sin's deceptive power and wanted to root it out of their lives. Shouldn't we want the same?


Though many books have been written on the "doctrine of sin," few are as practical and applicable as this one. In Knowing Sin, Mark Jones puts his expertise in the Puritans to work by distilling the vast wisdom of our Christian forebears into a single volume that summarizes their thought on this vital subject. The result isn't a theological tome to sit on your shelf and gather dust, but a surprisingly relevant book to keep by your bedside and refer to again and again. You'll come to understand topics like:


Sin's Origin

Sin's Grief

Sin's Thoughts

Sin's Temptations

Sin's Misery

Sin's Secrecy

Sin's Defeat

None of us is free from the struggle with sin. The question isn't whether we're sinful, it's what we're doing about it. Thanks be to God, there is a path to overcoming sin. And the first step on that path to victory is knowing what we're up against. Start Knowing Sin today!

  • Rev. Dr. Mark Jones (PhD, Leiden Universiteit) has been the Minister at Faith Vancouver Church (PCA) since 2007. He speaks worldwide on many different topics and is currently starting a seminary in Cape Town called Reformed Theological College that will seek to provide free theological education to the continent of Africa and beyond.



  • “What doctor would receive our respect if he offered a cure without a careful diagnosis? Yet we shy away from a thorough diagnosis of the deadly illness of our souls—the inward evil of sin. Mark Jones takes God’s holy Word, which penetrates and reveals with far more accuracy than any medical scan, and shows us the heinousness of sin so that we may find healing from the Great Physician. This book draws from the biblical wisdom of the Puritans and other classic Reformed writers to offer radical insight into the nature of sin and a great help to those who want to mortify the enemy within.”
    —JOEL R. BEEKE, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, MI
