About These Volumes

Volume one of Vos' Reformed Dogmatics covers the Doctrine of God, including his knowability, his names, being, and character. Vos discusses the Trinity and its evidence in Scripture and its theological development in the church fathers. Also examined are God’s acts and our knowledge of them, creation, predestination, and the providence of God.

The second volume of Reformed Dogmatics examines anthropology, with a focus on the nature of humanity, sin, and the covenant of grace. He begins his examination of human nature with the question: What does scripture say about the nature of humanity? From there, Vos examines the relationship between the body and the soul. In hamartiology, Vos surveys various philosophical perspectives on sin and investigates the claims of Scripture. The volume concludes with a lengthy study of God's covenants with humanity through the Old Testament culminating with the New Covenant.

The focus of volume three is Christology. It covers the Person of Christ which includes his two natures and the incarnation, and then also the work of Christ: his death and resurrection, the nature of his sacrifice, and his office as priest and mediator.

Volume four covers Soteriology, continuing and building on Vos' examination of the work of Christ. He discusses the nature of salvation, evidence of salvation in the Holy Spirit and the Church, and the order of salvation (the Ordo Salutis).

In volume five, Vos sets forth in a clear and orderly manner the essence and organization of the church; the Word of God, baptism, and the Lord’s Supper as means of grace; and the doctrine of last things.

About the Author

Geerhardus Vos was connected with a number of important Reformed institutions. He was the first alumnus of Calvin Seminary (then Theological School) to earn a doctoral degree and also the first Calvin Seminary faculty member to have an advanced degree. Before his appointment at Calvin, Vos was invited by Abraham Kuyper to take the chair of Old Testament Theology at the newly formed Free University (Vrije Universiteit) in Amsterdam.

After teaching at Calvin, Vos accepted a position at Princeton during the days of the Old Princeton Theologians. He held the chair of Biblical Theology there from 1892 until 1932. Vos is perhaps best known to English speakers for his books Pauline Eschatology, published in 1930, and Biblical Theology: Old and New Testament, published in 1948.
