Tuesday at Twin Lakes Fellowship, Dr. Ron Gleason presented an introduction to the life and writings of Herman Bavinck. His address is divided into six sections: (1) Bavinck the Pastor, (2) Bavinck the Theologian, (3) Bavinck the Churchman, (4) Bavinck the Man with Warts, (5) Bavinck the Statesman, and (6) Bavinck the Author.
An excellent summary was published by Nicholas Batzig here and audio of the address can be downloaded here or listed to online here:
Also, Gleason distributed two papers at the conference, including a helpful biographical sketch, which you can download here:
