THE WONDERFUL WORKS OF GOD
HERMAN BAVINCK

"Under the title of Magnalia Dei, the wonderful works of God, I wish to give a simple explanation of the Christian faith in a book of modest scope, as confessed by the Reformed churches…” –Herman Bavinck, from his Foreword

“The Wonderful Works of God is more than an abridged version of Reformed Dogmatics—it is a fresh restatement of the same truths clothed in plain language for popular use. May God use it to infuse scriptural, Reformed Christianity into the heads and hearts of many people.” -- Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

"Your spiritual life will be well benefitted as you immerse yourself in this rich teaching.” - Steven J. Lawson, President, OnePassion Ministries

"Over the years I have found this summary of the Christian faith to be the most eloquent and the most thoroughly biblical and pastoral that I have ever seen in a single volume. The most difficult doctrines in the Reformed faith are given a masterful treatment. Without diminishing from their complexity, Bavinck manages to make the loci of our theology accessible and winsome. Everyone should own a copy and read it regularly." -- William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary

“Condensing his multi-volume Dogmatics, this one volume of Bavinck’s ‘gold’ is a great treasure. This book was formative in my own trek to Reformed theology, as it has been for many others. At a time of doctrinal confusion and the blurring of important categories even in evangelical circles, this new edition is welcome indeed.” -- Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

110 years after its original publication, The Wonderful Works of God remains one of the finest single-volume systematic theologies ever written. Adapting the magisterial systematic theology found in his four-volume Reformed Dogmatics, this is perhaps Bavinck's most eminently practical work a single, accessible volume for the college classroom and the family bookshelf. Previously published in America as Our Reasonable Faith, this book has had a deep and lasting influence on the growth and development of Reformed theology. It is the publisher's hope that in its new form, this book continues to astonish readers with the wonderful works of God, and provide a deeper knowledge of their Triune God.

Author

Herman Bavinck (1854-1921) succeeded Abraham Kuyper as Professor of Theology at the Free University of Amsterdam. With the recent translation into English of his four-volume Reformed Dogmatics there has been a renewed appreciation for this deeply intelligent mind committed to the importance of the church.
