Item Description...
Overview
Theologians have long appreciated Herman Bavinck's four-volume masterpiece, Gereformeerde Dogmatiek, published in 1895-99, for its comprehensive treatment of dogmatic theology. Unfortunately, this magnum opus from the great Reformed theologian has only been available in Dutch, and therefore has been inaccessible to most readers. Now, thanks to the Dutch Reformed Translation Society and the work of translator John Vriend and editor John Bolt, the first volume of Bavinck's magisterial Reformed Dogmatics is available in English for the first time. Bolt's tireless work updating the documentation augments this significant work. The seventeen chapters of this volume are grouped into sections: Introduction to Dogmatics, The History and Literature of Dogmatics, Foundations of Dogmatic Theology, Revelation, and Faith. Bavinck's approach throughout is meticulous, though he wears his vast learning lightly. As he moves throughout the subject of dogmatic theology, he stands on the shoulders of giants such as Augustine, John Calvin, Francis Turretin, and Charles Hodge. Editor John Bolt characterizes the work as follows: "Reformed Dogmatics is biblically and confessionally faithful, pastorally sensitive, challenging, and still relevant. Bavinck's life and thought reflect a serious effort to be pious, orthodox, and thoroughly contemporary. To pietists fearful of the modern world on one hand and to critics of orthodoxy skeptical about its continuing relevance on the other, Bavinck's example suggests a model answer: an engaging Trinitarian vision of Christian discipleship in God's world." This masterwork will appeal to scholars and students of theology, research and theological libraries, and pastors and laity who read serious works of Reformed theology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Grace Restores Nature  Aug 18, 2007
What I say about this volume will suffice for the others. Herman Bavinck stood at the pinnacle of the Reformed tradition. It was his desire to assimilate the greatest minds of Christendom, and reapply their insights for the sake of the contemporary church.

Bavinck shares the same standard assumptions and arguments found in all Reformed systematics. His genius lies in another area: the relation of grace to nature, Christ to culture, theology to philosophy. Bavinck is the first great Reformed *creational* theologian. Grace does not flank, detract, or add to nature. If so, then creation is ancillary to the plans of God. Rather, grace *restores* nature, brings it back to communion and participation in the divine.

Prolegomena:
Bavinck begins with the revealed word of God as the only sure foundation for theology and knowledge. While his discussions are at times dry, given the nature of late 19th century philosophy, he set the stage for the great Reformed thinkers of the 20th century, namely Cornelius Van Til. It is safe to say that without Bavinck there would be no Van Til.

Bavinck breaks from many elements of Christendom on the point of nature-grace. How is the theologian to approach Creation, especially given the troubling fact that creation has been marred by sin? For Bavinck, the essence of the Christian religion is the re-creation of the cosmos into the Kingdom of God. This means, as I understand it, that Christ's work re-focused creation and the redeemed humanity into a kingdom , still embryonic in form, eagerly awaiting the Consummation.

This means, practically speaking, that the Christian may apply his theology into "secular" spheres. Creation (nature) has been restored. It means that sin no longer has dominion and that the redemption of Christ spreads as far "as the curse is found."

I do recommend this work. He is not as exegetical as modern theologians, but his work represents an important move in Reformed theology.
