Herman Ridderbos is considered one of the twentieth century’s most influential New Testament theologians. His works emphasized Heilsgeschichte, or salvation history—the progressive history of God’s saving acts, in which Jesus Christ is central in redemption. Ridderbos’ redemptive-historical approach to the Scriptures catapulted a new wave in New Testament study, furthering our understanding of Pauline and biblical theology.The Herman Ridderbos Collection contains seven of his most important works in English translation, including two of Ridderbos’ studies of Paul and Pauline theology—one which offers a critical comparison of the preaching of Paul with the self-disclosure of Jesus, all within the framework of the history of revelation. This collection also includes Ridderbos’ succinct classic on the canonicity of the New Testament: The Authority of the New Testament Scriptures, as well as a work on Rudolf Bultmann, a study of the preaching of Jesus, and much more.
