Philosophy of Revelation: A New Annotated Edition

Brock, Cory (ed.); Sutanto, Nathaniel G. (ed.)

Do we really need a revelation from on high to make sense of life? In these influential addresses, delivered during a tour of the United States, Bavinck brilliantly argues that meaning begins with God’s knowledge of himself. Bright, insightful annotation accompanies the text throughout, making this new edition a must for students of Bavinck and philosophy alike.

Product Description

Dutch theologian Herman Bavinck (1854-1921) is widely celebrated as one of the top theologians in the Reformed tradition, and through the ongoing labor of translation teams, editors, and publishers, his vast writings are being offered anew to English-only readers.

This book brings the groundbreaking framework of Bavinck's "organic motif" to the fore in one of Bavinck's most influential works. In the best sense of the title, the modern, yet orthodox Bavinck offers readers here both a philosophy of revelation and a philosophy of revelation. Philosophy of Revelation was originally presented by Bavinck at the Stone Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1908, that by itself deserves being published. This classic text is updated and annotated and may function as a supreme entry into the mind of Bavinck. Bavinck saw theology as the task of "thinking God's thoughts after him and tracing their unity." This project can be seen as "thinking Bavinck's thoughts after him and tracing their unity."
