Bavinck’s 4-volume masterwork, Gereformeerde Dogmatick, published from 1895 to 1899, has influenced generations of Reformed thinkers. Written in Dutch more than 100 years ago, Bavinck’s masterwork is available in English! Drawing from the church fathers and medieval thinkers, Bavinck engages Roman Catholic and liberal Protestant perspectives to produce a confessionally faithful, pastorally sensitive, challenging Neo-Calvinist work that marked the high point of Dutch theological reflection---and remains relevant to today’s readers.

This masterwork will appeal not only to scholars, students, pastors, and laity interested in Reformed theology but also to research and theological libraries.

Now, thanks to the Dutch Reformed Translation Society and the work of translator John Vriend and editor John Bolt, Bavinck’s magisterial Reformed Dogmatics is available in English. Bolt’s tireless work updating the documentation augments this significant work.

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.”

  • Vol: 1  - Prolegomena (2003) - The seventeen chapters of this first volume are grouped into sections: Introduction to Dogmatics, The History and Literature of Dogmatics, Foundations of Dogmatic Theology, Revelation, and Faith.

This is now my "go-to" theology. With the thousands of Scripture references, astonishingly thorough treatment of each doctrine and the clarity of each thought this resource will be considered every week in my study. Thank you for a great software, Accordance, partnered with great resources like the Reformed Dogmatics by Bavinck.
