Reviews - What do customers think about Reformed Dogmatics (4 Volume Set)?
Outstanding Dogmatics Now Complete Nov 18, 2009
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).
- God glorifying. - Christ centered - Wonderful precision

challenging Jul 14, 2009
I have heard many people recommend Bavinck's Reformed Dogmatics for pastors and those in ministry. But as a layperson, some of my friends suggested I read more "practical" books. Yet I have found this rich theological work to be incredibly practical for my life. The wonderful reason for this is that it is difficult to read Reformed Dogmatics and keep your faith in a compartmentalized, comfortable fashion. Bavinck, by writing in a way that glorifies and reveres the Lord, implicitly but very effectively challenges you to do the same.
If you are looking for weightier or more profound endorsements, then find the book at Westminster Theological Seminary's online bookstore and see the endorsements listed there. I cannot recommend this work too highly.
Beneficial for education as well as devotion Jun 20, 2008
Reformed Dogmatics by Bavinck is an extremely desirable resource for individuals who want a practical, thorough, and systematic treatment of Reformed theology. He writes from a thoroughly Christo-centric paradigm, illuminating the redeeming character of the triune God. God to Bavinck is a God who condescends towards us and provides a means for us to receive forgiveness and redemption. Given the richness of Reformed Dogmatics, it would be helpful for the reader to have a least a prior basic understanding of topics found with in systematic theology before engaging this set. In other words, this set is not the best introduction to systematic theology. But coupled with something on a more introductory level such as Grudem's Systematic Theology or Berkhof's Systematic Theology, one would greatly benefit from Reformed Dogmatics.
