Reviews - What do customers think about Philosophy of Revelation?

The significance of revelation in every field of thought  Dec 29, 2007
This is undoubtedly one of the best books I have ever read. It contains the Stone Lectures delivered by Dr. Bavinck at Princeton Seminary in 1908 and 1909, ten years after Dr. Kuyper gave his famous "Lectures on Calvinism". Dr. Bavinck was the Professor of Theology who succeeded Kuyper at the Free University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and whose multi-volume "Reformed Dogmatics" is widely regarded as the premier product of systematic theology in the twentieth century of the orthodox Reformed tradition. It is interesting that his "Dogmatics" has waited so long to be translated, but thankfully it is done, and perhaps its ready availability in English will generate more interest in some of his lesser known work. I think it is also noteworthy that this book was translated, at least in part, by Dr. Geerhardus Vos of Princeton, and its publication was prepared and supervised by Vos and Warfield in the same year the lectures were finished. These two certainly kept themselves busy with their own studies and writings, so it strikes me as significant that they thought this book was important enough to see it translated and published so quickly after the lectures were delivered.

In these lectures, Bavinck discusses the importance of revelation in the major fields of human investigation, including philosophy, nature, history, religion, Christianity, religious experience, culture, and the future. He shows that in each of these areas, people have in various ways attempted to reduce the explanation of the phenomena to one original, universal principle (monism). However, as long as they ignore and deny the reality of God's revelation, they must seek this original, universal principle within the world. In each case Bavinck shows that these attempts end in futility and an inability to explain and understand the diversity of phenomena, which can only be understood intelligibly on the basis of the reality of revelation from God. In this context he considers a vast number of different theories that have been advanced in these fields by various thinkers. It is interesting how often the concept of evolution, which Bavinck notes has "become a magic formula", was championed in many fields outside of biology as the cornerstone of intelligibility. The chapter on religious experience is also of paramount interest in the context of the contemporary church and its obsession with personal experience, almost always with an (at best) tenuous association with objective revelation. Those who are familiar with Van Til will readily recognize the line of thought in Bavinck leading in that direction, and will happily find this volume much easier to read and understand. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
