Herman Bavinck

Ron Gleason--who has read Herman Bavinck's Reformed Dogmatics over 10 times in the original Dutch and who is currently writing a biography on Bavinck--has posted a biographical overview of his life (part 1 | part 2).

Dr. Gleason also recently reviewed the English translation for the first three volumes of Reformed Dogmatics.
These volumes have been anticipated by the theological world for a long time and now that they are available, it would behoove every professor, theological student, Elder, and serious Christian to purchase them. . . . It would not be saying too much to state that reading any chapter in the RD will have the effect of thoroughly grounding the Christian in the most important aspects of the subject under discussion.
