This comprehensive treatment of Christian doctrine was first issued in 1909 under the title The Wonderful Works of God. It has served well as a synopsis of Bavinck's larger, four-volume Dogmatics, for it presents in clear perspective all the fundamental doctrines of the Bible.
Above all Bavinck was a thoroughly Scriptural theologian—he was always guided by the Bible as he systematized Christian truth. He remained a supreme apologist for Reformed Christianity and consistently exposed two inside threats to the Reformed faith; formal orthodoxy and evasive piety. At the same time he upheld true Christian optimism and affirmed that “the faith has the promise of victory over the world.”
