Overview

Recent discussions of creation have centered on the skirmishes between creationists and evolutionists. However, as the editor of this volume points out, there is much more to the Christian doctrine of creation than scientific battles about origins and the age of the earth.

Herman Bavinck stands as one of historys finest Reformed theologians, yet his writings are only now being made available in English. In the Beginning: Foundations of Creation Theology is the second installment in the Dutch Reformed Translation Societys translation of Bavincks classic Gereformeerde Dogmatiek (Reformed Dogmatics). The first installment is The Last Things.

  • Explores the doctrine of Creation, even beyond the frequently addressed topics such as evolution and the age of humanity
  • Examines the distinction between the Creator and his creatures as the starting point of true religion
  • Studies the implications of the doctrine of Creation for science in ways that are still relevant in the today's world
As a Calvinistic geologist, I've wanted all my professional life to know what Bavinck had to say about the biblical doctrine of creation and its implications for the historical natural sciences, like geology, astronomy, and paleontology. What a treat at last to read his perceptive and carefully nuanced treatment of the doctrine of creation... Bavinck displays remarkable familiarity with the scientific currents of his time, and even though his understanding of turn-of-the-century geology is partially flawed, his analysis of the issues of the antiquity of the Earth, evolution, the deluge, death before the Fall, and the nature of humans is, nevertheless, full of important insights. Because geology, biology, astronomy, and biblical studies have considerably advanced since Bavincks day, readers may not agree in every instance with his positions, but they will always be enriched and challenged by his carefully balanced discussions of the issues.

-- Davis A. Young, professor of geology, Calvin College

This is a theological feast! Bavinck was a first-rate theologian who speaks here to issues that are as timely today as they were a century ago. Theological reflection on the nature and scope of Gods creating work does not get any better than this.

-- Richard J. Mouw
