This magnificent and towering work was first published from 1895-1899, and Gereformeerde Dogmatiek has inspired many of the most important Reformed theologians and apologists of the 20th and 21th centuries. It now comes in a four volume set, from Baker in partnership with the Dutch Reformed Translation Society, and contains GD in English for the first time in its totality. Masterful, outstanding, and comprehensive.
Apologist Cornelius Van Til admitted his debt to the scholarship and insights of Bavinck; Van Til stated: "Bavinck shows us that if we are to have a truly broad foundation for the concept of Christian dogmatics, we must begin with a discussion of the general principles of knowledge. He points out that the absolutely self-conscious God is the source of all human knowledge. " Van Til: IST, Sigward 1949.
Greg Bahnsen demonstrates his esteem for Bavinck's work and quotes him in his article: For Whom Was God's Law Intended? Biblical Worldview 4:12 (December, 1988).
"This is one of those seminal works that embodies a significant portion of our Reformed theological heritage. We all should rejoice to see this material finally available in English!"(Samuel T. Logan, Westminster Theological Seminary).
