Barth and Owen left an indelible mark on theology.

John Owen (1616–1683) is one of the most influential theologians of the seventeenth century. His works capture the essence of theological inquiry in Puritan England, and have shaped and influenced theological reflection ever since. Owen was a proficient writer, composing numerous theological treatises, meditations, discourses, and sermons. His reflections are made more compelling by the context of political turmoil and religious persecution in which he wrote. “God still speaks,” Owen said, “When the world is in flux and the church finds itself in seeming peril.” Those words were as important to his original audience as they are to contemporary readers.

Karl Barth (1886–1968) was perhaps the most influential theologian of the twentieth century. Though many of his views have proven controversial, Barth’s stance against liberal theologians like Friedrich Schleiermacher has caused many evangelicals to see him as an unlikely ally. As D.A. Carson says, “There are many parts of Karl Barth’s writings that are luminescent. They are wonderfully evocative when he speaks of the glory and the greatness and the majesty of God and when he speaks of the importance of Christ.”

These collections include their most important works.

John Owen was a voluminous writer, and this collection includes his most important sermons, books, and treatises. You’ll find his seminal work against Arminianism (A Display of Arminianism), his defense of limited atonement (The Death of Death in the Death of Christ), and his massive, multi-part work on the Holy Spirit (Discourse on the Holy Spirit). These and many other works are collected in 17 volumes spanning nearly 10,000 pages.

Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics, his monumental life-work, consists of more than 6 million words and was written over the span of 35 years. In it, Barth covers the great doctrines of the Word of God, God, Creation, and Reconciliation in depth. He made it his task “to take all that has been said before and to think it through once more and freshly to articulate it anew as a theology of the grace of God in Jesus Christ.” (By the way, if you’re looking for a helpful, evangelical guide to digging into Church Dogmatics, D.A. Carson recommends this resource.)
