The Wonderful Works of God

Bavinck, Herman

Sale price$49.99

110 years after its original publication, The Wonderful Works of God remains one of the finest single-volume systematic theologies ever written. Adapting the magisterial systematic theology found in his four-volume Reformed Dogmatics, this is perhaps Bavinck’s most eminently practical work – a single, accessible volume for the college classroom and the family bookshelf. Previously published in America as Our Reasonable Faith, this book has had a deep and lasting influence on the growth and development of Reformed theology. It is the publisher’s hope that in its new form, this book continues to astonish readers with the wonderful works of God, and provide a deeper knowledge of their triune God. 

Included in this new, hardcover edition:

  • A new, insightful Introduction by R. Carlton Wynne
  • Updated typesetting of the classic Zylstra translation
  • The translator’s 1956 Preface
  • Bavinck’s original Foreword, previously unavailable in English
  • A comprehensive, student-friendly scripture and subject index

“The reappearance of this volume is most welcome. As Bavinck’s own abridgement of his monumental Reformed Dogmatics, it not only serves as an important and helpful introduction to that larger work but also provides brief and valuable treatments in their own right of the matters dealt with in its twenty-four chapters. Here is a book that belongs in the libraries of every church, pastor, teacher, and student of theology.”

Richard B. Gaffin, Jr. Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary

“Over the years I have found this summary of the Christian faith to be the most eloquent and the most thoroughly biblical and pastoral that I have ever seen in a single volume. The most difficult doctrines in the Reformed faith are given a masterful treatment. Without diminishing from their complexity, Bavinck manages to make the loci of our theology accessible and winsome. Everyone should own a copy and read it regularly.”

William Edgar Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary

“Herman Bavinck gave the modern church a theology of the living God. His four-volume Reformed Dogmatics is an abiding treasure for pastors and theologians. The Wonderful Works of God is more than an abridged version of Reformed Dogmatics—it is a fresh restatement of the same truths clothed in plain language for popular use. May God use it to infuse scriptural, Reformed Christianity into the heads and hearts of many people.”

Joel R. Beeke President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
