Publisher's Description

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.”

Translated by Henry Zylstra

“...Our Reasonable Faith, given out in 1909 as the Magnalia Dei (The Wonderful Works of God), is a compendium or synopsis of the four-volume Dogmatics. Our Reasonable Faith is less technical, less exclusively professional, more popularly intended than the Dogmatics, and is more fully supported by Scriptural reference and annotation, but it is, like the larger work, a book of basic Christian dogma. It presents clearly and in fine perspective the fundamental doctrines of Biblical teaching.”
- Henry Zylstra, (from the Preface)
