Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation: The Shorter Writings of Geerhardus Vos

Geerhardus Vos has been called “the father of Reformed biblical theology.” During his 39 years as a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, he achieved the reputation of a theologian whose biblical insight is without equal. The full impact of his exegetical labor has been realized only in recent years.
Emphasizing the historical character of biblical revelation, Vos was able to clarify the pervasive meaning of Scripture by bringing into view its basic structure. Far from an array of isolated prooftexts, the Bible was, for Vos, an organism—its rich diversity giving unanimous expression of its redemptive message.
In Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation, the shorter writings of this famed theologian have been gathered under one cover. The reader will discover here numerous major biblical and theological studies, selected addresses, and book reviews, as well as a 13-page bibliography of Vos’s writings.
All who are convinced of the importance of biblical theology and thoroughgoing scholarship will prize this collection, first released in 1970. John Muether's index of Scripture is included in this new printing for the first time.
Includes an Introduction by Richard B. Gaffin Jr.
