Item description for Last Things, The: Hope for This World and the Next by Herman Bavinck, John Bolt & John Vriend...

In light of the eschatological confusion attending the close of the twentieth century, the theology of Herman Bavinck has made a timely appearance in English to offer sound exegetical guidance. The Last Things wrestles through Scripture passages on death and the intermediate state, judgment, the identity of Israel, universalism, and the final renewal of all things. And, as the editor notes, though published one hundred years ago, this work "is biblically and confessionally faithful, pastorally sensitive, challenging, and still relevant."

Publishers Description
Written a century ago, Bavinck's stately theology of "the last things"-from death to the parousia-offers sound exegetical guidance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Last Things, The: Hope for This World and the Next?

Right about some things - wrong about others...  May 28, 2003
The author reminds us that people all over the world, both Christian and non, have known for some time there is a part of human beings that goes on 'after death'. It is good to be reminded of this because we all too easily become so attached to this life.

It is the Christian hope that even though our body dies we have the resurrection from the dead to look forward to. This is not just Catholic theology but an evangelical teaching as well.

Bavinck gives evidence for the immortality of the 'soul'. Although he is correct that we are immortal in some part, the soul is not that part. The Bible says human beings are made in three parts; spirit, soul and body (1 Thess.). "God is a Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth." If God is a 'spirit' and we must worship Him 'in spirit' meaning 'in our spirit', then it has to be 'our spirit' that is is 'made in His image' and therefore, immortal.

Body and soul were created 'on the earth', they are 'earthly' therefore, they are 'mortal'. A 'mortal' entity cannot contain an 'immortal' one. The mortal soul cannot contain God's immortal Spirit!

Body and soul are used synonymously in Scripture but the 'spirit' is different. Upon spiritual regeneration it is the 'spirit' of human beings that is circumcised ("circumcise the foreskin of your heart"). 'Heart' translated means 'spirit'! It is the 'spirit' that immediately goes either to paradise or hell after a person dies, the body remains in the grave until the resurrection from the dead.

Bavinck has researched his historical information well and he is correct in many of his theories. However, I found the book read like a textbook and was a little hard to follow.
