The fundamental question human beings face has not changed over the millennia: Do we find our meaning in something transcendent, or do we construct our own meaning from that which is immanent? Over recent centuries, this question has become more complicated, as one philosophical critique after another has claimed that the traditional Christian ideas of God and revelation are implausible or even incoherent. That question and these critiques lie at the heart of Herman Bavinck s Philosophy of Revelation, in which the great Dutch theologian mounts a positive articulation and careful defense of the Christian idea of revelation in the face of its most pointed intellectual critics. With helpful introductory essays by James Eglinton and two rising stars in the world of Bavinck studies, this new edition of the Stone Lectures is a gift to the church. While the lectures were given over a century ago, they have a contemporary ring because the issues with which they wrestle remain with us. They offer the Christian today a model of intelligent, informed, and courteous engagement with opponents and a lasting contribution to orthodox theology. --Carl R. Trueman, Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies Grove City College, Pennsylvania
The ongoing second coming of Herman Bavinck s works, originally written a century ago, remains a cause for celebration. First there was Reformed Dogmatics, and now we have what is arguably Bavinck s second-most important work on the centrality of revelation for a Christian worldview. Bavinck deserves to be ranked among the great theological B s of the twentieth century Barth, Brunner, and Bultmann but this work is of more than historical significance. Christian theologians today continue to negotiate the narrow orthodox path through the broad avenues of modernity, and Bavinck s firm grasp of the necessity of revelation for knowing not only God but also the world and ourselves makes him a reliable guide. --Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
