Herman Bavinck looms large as one of the nineteenth century's greatest Christian thinkers, contributing much to modern Reformed theology. Yet, despite his theological prowess, Bavinck was first and foremost concerned with being "a worthy follower of Jesus."?
In this book, John Bolt - editor of the English edition of Bavinck's four-volume masterpiece, Reformed Dogmatics - brings the great Dutch theologian's life and work to bear on following Jesus in the twenty-first century, helping us see the direct connection between robust theology, practical holiness and personal joy.
"Leaving virtually no pertinent stone unturned throughout his life and published works, Bolt provides both a full presentation of Bavinck's views and his own understanding of their continuing relevance for Christian discipleship today. Here is valuable instruction in Bavinck's thought presented in a way that will also stimulate the reader's own thinking on the issues raised."? - Richard B.
