Publisher Baker Academic
Theologians have long appreciated Herman Bavinck's four-volume masterpiece, Gereformeerde Dogmatiek, for its comprehensive treatment of dogmatic theology. Now, thanks to the Dutch Reformed Translation Society, the third volume of Bavinck's magisterial Reformed Dogmatics is available in English for the first time.
THE BEST S AVAILABLE!!! Do not be afraid - if English is my second language and I love it, if my wife does not have a theological education and can sit and read him - it means, it is well written, very clear, deep, but really beneficial.
Bavinck is by far the most comprehensive ST available. Provides excellent discussions on historical, systematic, exegetical, and redemptive-historical themes. RD is also surprising devotional at spots.
"Herman Bavinck is one of my favorite theologians He reminds one of Warfield for his encyclopedic knowledge of theology as a science, and for his precise and comprehensive statement of doctrine he is without peer. I particularly enjoy his skilled use and interaction with the discipline of historical theology in his exposition of doctrine. He is reverent in his handling of the scriptures, and leaves one with the impression that if he so desired he could have been a Biblical scholar of repute. If Warfield was a dogmatic theologian, and Shedd a speculative theologian, then Bavinck was truly the scientific theologian of the 19th century. Reformed theology in this country is richer because of the translation into the english language of this magnum opus. Bavinck was not afraid to interact with the liberal theologians of his day thus refuting the charge that conservative theologians are closed minded and afraid to dialogue about the so called "issues"."
