From the Inside Flap
""Bavinck's serious engagement with the biblical text, the history of Christian theology, non-Christian thought, and with other non-Reformed theological traditions, particularly Roman Catholicism and liberal Protestantism, makes for enjoyable theological reading. . . . The translation of these volumes into English is a welcome addition to the resources for study of Reformed theology. . . . Those who desire to understand the faith once for all delivered to the saints will be rewarded by a careful and systematic reading."--Glenn R. Kreider, "Bibliotheca Sacra
""Bavinck's "Reformed Dogmatics" has been the fountainhead of Reformed theology for the last hundred years. It is by far the most profound and comprehensive Reformed systematic theology of the twentieth century. The reader will be amazed by Bavinck's erudition, creativity, and balance. Bavinck is confessionally orthodox, but he recognizes the need to rethink the traditional formulations from Scripture in the context of contemporary discussion. I hope it will have a large readership and will bring forth much theological and spiritual fruit."--John M. Frame, Reformed Theological Seminary
"This magisterial work exhibits Bavinck's vast knowledge and appreciation of the Christian tradition. Written from a Reformed perspective, it offers a perceptive critique of modern theology. . . . Recommended for university, church, and seminary libraries because of its historical importance."--Augustine J. Curley, "Library Journal" --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
From the Back Cover
--Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Bavinck's Dutch masterwork was the Everest of which the textbooks by Louis Berkhof and Auguste Leoerf were foothills and Berkouwer's studies in dogmatics were outliers. Like Augustine, Calvin, and Edwards, Bavinck was a man of giant mind, vast learning, ageless wisdom, and great expository skill. Solid but lucid, demanding but satisfying, broad and deep and sharp and stabilizing, Bavinck's magisterial Reformed Dogmatics remains after a century the supreme achievement of its kind."
--J. I. Packer, Regent College
"Kudos to Baker Academic, and the Dutch Reformed Translation Society, on the completion of a highly important project. . . . The key work of a central Dutch Reformed theologian is at last available in its entirety to the English-speaking world."
--Michael Potemra, National Review
"The translation of Bavinck's work into English is a welcome addition to resources for study of Reformed theology. . . . Those who desire to understand the faith once for all delivered to the saints will be rewarded [by] a careful and systematic reading of the work in these four volumes. The theological community owes a debt of gratitude to the Dutch Reformed Translation Society for its excellent work in bringing this project to completion."
