Reformed Dogmatics, Five Volume Set (Vos)
Vos, Geerhardus; Gaffin, Richard B. (Translator and Editor)
“This translation of Vos' Dogmatick is the last link in access to his magnificent oeuvre. English readers will now be able to match the Princetonian's commitment to historic Reformed doctrinal orthodoxy with his pioneering work in redemptive–historical biblical theology. The interaction is refreshing as well as pace–setting. Kudos to publisher and translator alike for undertaking this project. ”See All

“Like books, people can become classics. Great in their day, but richer and more fulfilling with time. Not yet a classic, Vos never-before-published Reformed Dogmatics is more like a lost Shakespeare play recently discovered. There seems to have been a flurry in recent years of systematic theologians writing with an eye for biblical theology. With this series we now have a biblical theologian writing a systematic theology. Thanks to Lexham Press for giving us such a long-awaited but impressive access to this much-discussed gem.”See All

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.
