From the Back Cover
"What a wonderful gift to the English-speaking theological world! The topics explored by Bavinck are still of the utmost importance, and he addresses them here in a theological voice that is amazingly fresh. I pray that the appearance of this volume signals the beginnings of a Bavinck revival!"
--Richard J. Mouw
, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Like Augustine, Calvin, and Edwards, Bavinck was a man of giant mind, vast learning, ageless wisdom, and great expository skill, and to have these volumes now in full English is a wonderful enrichment. 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
"Those interested in Reformed theology will welcome with open arms Reformed Dogmatics
. We owe a great debt of gratitude to those who have made the treasures of Bavinck's thought available to a new world of appreciative hearers."
--Donald K. McKim
, editor, Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith

--Augustine J. Curley
, Library Journal
"Pastors and theologians will welcome the historic first complete translation of Herman Bavinck's Reformed Dogmatics
