by Herman Bavinck
This popular digest of Herman Bavincks classic four-volume Reformed Dogmatics clearly presents the fundamental doctrines of biblical theology. A practical handbook of theology, it is an outstanding comprehensive statement of Christian faith and doctrine.
In his presentation of the biblical material Bavinck uses primarily two methods, which may be called subjective and objective. By the first method Bavinck relates truth immediately to the Christian life, safeguards his presentation against academic argument and idle speculation, and points out directly what the value of a given doctrine is for mind and heart. By the second method he traces out what order is objectively present in the truths of the faith themselves, how these are related to each other, and what the governing principle of them all is. These two ways are intermingled throughout, thus reconciling head and heart.
Chapters 18 set forth the nature of Gods revelation how it came into existence and how, through the creeds and confessions, we have come to know it. Chapters 924 systematically present the content of that revelation. That second main division is itself divided into two parts. Chapters 913 set forth the ways in which God has revealed himself: his attributes, his triune existence, his works, and the crown of his creation, man. Chapters 1424 then discuss how the salvation of the Lord is implemented and applied.
Fully supported by scriptural references, Our Reasonable Faith provides the student, teacher, pastor, and layman with a readable, thoroughgoing, systematic presentation of Gods revelation its nature and content.
