Book Review: The Wonderful Works of God (Herman Bavinck)


Herman Bavinck (1854-1921) succeeded Abraham Kuyper as Professor of Theology at the Free University of Amsterdam. His four-volume Reformed Dogmatics has recently been translated from Dutch into English, and because of that  there has been a renewed appreciation for Bavinck’s brilliance and his commitment to the church. 

The book was first published in English under the title, Our Reasonable Faith, and translated by Henry Zylstra. The new edition contains Bavinck’s original foreword (which wasn’t available in English before) and an introduction by Carlton Wynne. When I asked to review this book, I didn’t realize it was an update of Our Reasonable Faith, a book which I already owned.  However I’m happy that I did ask for this book; this volume is much nicer! The typeset has been updated so that this book is easier to read (and it doesn’t feel like I’m reading a book from 1909).
