In this, the final volume in the landmark Reformed Dogmatics series, Bavinck examines the role of Christ in a believer's life. In Part I he develops the Reformed views of calling, regeneration, faith, conversion, justification, sanctification and perseverance. The doctrine of the Church becomes the discussion in Part II as Bavinck looks at the Church’s Spiritual Essence, The Church’s Spiritual Government, The Church’s Spiritual Power, Proclamation, Sacraments, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. Lastly, Bavinck wraps up his magnum opus with a dissertation of the believer's hope in Christ, His return, and the renewal of all things.

This masterwork will appeal to scholars and students of theology, research and theological libraries, and pastors and laity who read serious works of Reformed theology.

About Herman Bavinck

Herman Bavinck was born in 1854 in the Netherlands. He studied at Kampen Theological Seminary and the University of Leiden, and graduated in 1880. Bavinck returned to Kampen in 1881 as the newly-appointed Professor of Dogmatics. In 1902, Bavinck moved to Amsterdam to teach at the Free University, and was also appointed to the parliament in the Netherlands.

Along with Abraham Kuyper, Bavinck figured prominently in the nineteenth century Dutch Calvinist revival and contributed to the resurgence of Reformed theology. He was a prolific writer, and published numerous books and articles. His most well-known publications include his 4-volume Reformed Dogmatics and The Philosophy of Revelation.
