Reviews - What do customers think about Reformed Dogmatics, Vol. 2: God and Creation?
Good translation of a classic Feb 21, 2006
This is one of the classics of reformed theology. Bavinck provides rich overviews and profound views on the topics under discussion. If you are not always satisfied, be sure that Bavinck was neither by the end of his life. However, reading this volume will prevent you from offering cheap solutions to difficult questions. (Reformed) theologians can only gain from a critical (re)engagement with Bavinck. This volume is well translated and well edited. Having made several comparisons with the Dutch original (Dutch being my mother tongue), I recommend this volume without hesitation to all those readers who are not proficient in Dutch. To be sure, I have noticed a few flaws, but they do not make the translation unreliable. Moreover, Dutch readers will appreciate this volume since Bavincks Latin quotations have been translated into English as well, each chapter is introduced with a summary and the bibliography contains full references instead of Bavinck's sometimes cryptic abbreviations.
