“Under the title of Magnalia Dei, the wonderful works of God, I wish to give a simple explanation of the Christian faith in a book of modest scope, as confessed by the Reformed churches…” –Herman Bavinck, from his Foreword
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
“Condensing his multi-volume Dogmatics, this one volume of Bavinck’s ‘gold’ is a great treasure. This book was formative in my own trek to Re- formed theology, as it has been for many others. At a time of doctrinal con- fusion and the blurring of important categories even in evangelical circles, this new edition is welcome indeed.”
J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
“You don’t read Bavinck. You drink Bavinck. You savor words that beauti- fully wrap lucidity. Your face smiles even as your heart worships, saying, ‘O Lord, you are my God... I will praise your name, for you have done wonder- ful things.’”
A. Craig Troxel
Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California
“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 Seminar y
“Herman Bavinck’s theology has been the fountainhead of Reformed think- ing for over a century. His four-volume Dogmatics, recently translated into English, is a huge blessing to the church. Now his shorter theology, The Wonderful Works of God, is available in English again, in a new edition with study helps, and I could not be happier. This should be the anchor of every theological library.”
Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy Emeritus, Reformed Theological Seminary
“I have used Bavinck’s one-volume systematic theology as a ‘go-to’ for many years. It remains the gold standard. Every serious Bible student should read it.”
Derek W. H. Thomas
Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic and Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary
“I first read Bavinck’s The Wonderful Works of God during my seminary days at Westminster. I felt as if I had stumbled upon a hidden treasure. This monu- mental work has all the best ingredients of systematic theology: a warm piety, solid reasoning, a thoroughly biblical base, and a glorious God-centeredness. May this new, elegant edition enrich students of theology for decades to come.”
Stephen J. Nichols
President, Reformation Bible College
“Reading Bavinck is like listening to one of those fine, rare sermons that manages to be biblically rich, theologically sophisticated, spiritually uplift- ing—and clear. This fresh, new edition is a wonderful gift to the church, making the riches of Bavinck accessible for a wider audience to enjoy.”
President and Professor of Theology, Union School of Theology
“It is good news that this highly accessible, one-volume version of Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics is again available. It is to be hoped that it will greatly extend the readership of one of the most important theologians in the Re- formed tradition, who was until recently relatively little read in English.”
Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Union School of Theology
