Author Bio

Geerhardus Vos (1862-1949) was born in the Netherlands and emigrated to the USA in 1881. He earned degrees from Calvin Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the University of Strasbourg (PhD in Arabic). In 1894 he was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in the USA. Before beginning a thirty-nine year tenure on Princetons faculty, he was professor of systematic and exegetical theology at Calvin for five years.

Editorial Reviews

An intimate look into the life of a figure who deserves more attention. Geerhardus Vos linked important sites in trans-Atlantic Calvinism a hundred years ago: from Amsterdam to Princeton to Grand Rapids to Philadelphia, His letters show how he built these networks and what he thought on the important theological questions that agitated them.
Brings a man to life who has been the trait d’ union between the Dutch neocalvinist movement of Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck and the American Presbyterian tradition of Benjamin B. Warfield and J. Gresham Machen. These letters are not just about theology, but present Geerhardus Vos in vivid relationship and debate with friends and colleagues. The editor has done a tremendous service for the study of the history of Reformed theology with this rich and hitherto unknown source.
Geerhardus Vos was a pilgrim living between two worlds. He came from the Old World; he flourished in the New. This life between the old and the new was a mirror of his sojourn between the present evil age and the age to come—between the now and the not yet . He belonged to the last Pilgrim—that Pioneer and Perfector. Geerhardus Vos belonged to the Lord Jesus Christ—but his life was hidden with Christ in God.
