“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
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.
Included in this new, hardcover edition:
- A new, insightful Introduction by R. Carlton Wynne
- Updated typesetting of the classic Zylstra translation
- The translator’s 1956 Preface
- Bavinck’s original Foreword, previously unavailable in English
- A comprehensive, student-friendly scripture and subject index
About the 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.
