More About Geerhardus Vos
Geerhardus Vos (1862-1949) was born in the Netherlands and emigrated to the USA in 1881. He has been called "the father of Reformed biblical theology." He earned degrees from Calvin Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the University of Strasbourg (PhD in Arabic). In 1894 he was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in the USA. Before beginning a thirty-nine year tenure on Princeton's faculty, he was professor of systematic and exegetical theology at Calvin for five years. During his thirty-nine years as a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, he achieved the reputation of a theologian whose biblical insight is without equal. The full impact of his exegetical labor has been realized only in recent years.
Geerhardus Vos was born in 1862 and died in 1949.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Teaching of Jesus Concerning the Kingdom of God and the Church?
Difficulty level extremely high Dec 7, 2000
No doubt, this is an excellent book. The problem with the book isn't so much the book itself, but the difficulty of the ideas and the syntax of Vos' writing style. I am left with the distinct impression that this book *cannot* be read casually or at leisure. It is a serious book that demands a serious reader. My review, then, is not so much a review, as much as it is a practical piece of advice for the interested reader. Be prepared to be confused, or at the least, to have to fight fiercely to gain an understanding of Vos's ideas. I will need to read this book again one day, as my first time reading wasn't too beneficial. Everything went over my head (whew! There, I said it! My darkest secret!), which is unfortunate for me, I'm sure.
