Reformed Dogmatics, Abridged

John Bolt’s new abridgement of Herman Bavinck’s 4-volume magnum opus, Reformed Dogmatics, is now available for purchase. My copy arrived in the mail on Tuesday and since it arrived I have been browsing through the new abridgement and comparing a handful of sections with the original unabridged work. By all accounts it appears Bolt has done a fine job of shrinking Bavinck’s classic from 3,000 pages to 850 while preserving the essence of Bavinck’s theology. Props to the folks at Baker Academic who continue to serve the church by translating, and now abridging, one of the Church’s most precious theological works.

  1. So the question is, should the reader looking for an introduction to Bavinck now start here or with Our Reasonable Faith?

    As an expert, how would you compare the two?
