As part of the series of Index Posts on Reformed Bibliology, we have the John Owen series.  Who was John Owen?

John Owen (1616 – 1683) was an English theologian and “was without doubt not only the greatest theologian of the English Puritan movement but also one of the greatest European Reformed theologians of his day, and quite possibly possessed the finest theological mind that England ever produced” (“Owen, John”, in Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals, p. 494)

And he was a defender of the Reformed Doctrine of Scripture as expressed in our confessions against the counter-reformation view that is now in vogue within Reformed Christendom.
