    One thought on “Reformed Dogmatics Volume 3: Sin and Salvation in Christ”

    1. Bavinck is a Dutch Reformed Theologian of the 19th and early 20th century. In every chapter he does a masterful job interacting with various traditions in addition to his own Reformed tradition, including Catholics, and Lutherans, but also modern thought and various philosophical schools stemming from Kant, Richtl, Schleiermacher, etcDense, thought provoking, and well worth it.

    2. Read in late Fall 2015 for a Systematic Theology class through Reformed Theological Seminary. Great read for a translated work from the turn of the 20th century

    3. Herman Bavinck is a classic expression of Reformed Orthodoxy in conversation with the modern world. Bavinck keeps faithful to the larger Reformed tradition while engaging psychology, philosophy, anthropology, and theologians like Ritschl and Scheiermacher. Overall, I highly recommend the book.However, Bavinck is nowhere near perfect. He has some of the best articulations of trinitarian soteriology I have ever seen, and then will go off and do something odd. Additionally, he does spend long perio [...]

    4. This truly is an amazing book that not only breaks down Christology into an understandable doctrine, but shows the author's amazing knowledge on the breadth and depth of nearly every view on this subject.

    5. As with the preceding two volumes this one was first class. Herman Bavinck's depth and width of reading is very impressive. Some readers, however, might find the frequent references to nineteenth-century liberals a bit superfluous. For my part, I found them useful.

    6. A solid review of reformed theology (dogmatics) from a Dutch theologian who took up the mantle from Abraham Kuyper (neo-calvinist) and stinkin' read EVERYBODY and comments on their ideas. Hard to believe that this was written over 100 years ago and is just now being translated into English!

    7. This is simply the greatest Dogmatics that I have ever read. Bavinck is deeply rooted in the Reformed tradition, conversant with a broad and diverse spectrum of scholarship (philosophy, theology, history, science), and motivated by an evident love for Christ and his church. Highly recommended!

    8. Read in late Fall 2015 for a Systematic Theology class through Reformed Theological Seminary. Great read for a translated work from the turn of the 20th century

    9. Not as enjoyable as Volume 2, but in the sense that 2nd place isn't as good as first place—still worth four stars.

    10. Bavinck's systematic is excellent. He's opperating out the Dutch Reformed tradition. He influenced Vos, Van Til, and Kline, among others.
