Though representing the early theological thought of one of the premier Reformed thinkers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Geerhardus Vos' Reformed Dogmatics, originally published in five volumes as Gereformeerde Dogmatiek, has never been available to an English audience—until now.
Vos' strong grounding in biblical scholarship and biblical theology makes his Reformed Dogmatics unique, bringing a fresh biblical perspective. Though these volumes are systematic in nature, Geerhardus Vos brings the skills and acumen of a biblical theologian to the task.
The second volume of Reformed Dogmatics examines anthropology, with a focus on the nature of humanity, sin, and the covenant of grace. He begins his examination of human nature with the question: What does scripture say about the nature of humanity? From there, Vos examines the relationship between the body and the soul. In hamartiology, Vos surveys various philosophical perspectives on sin and investigates the claims of Scripture. The volume concludes with a lengthy study of God's covenants with humanity through the Old Testament culminating with the New Covenant.
Translated and edited by biblical theologian and Vos expert, Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., Vos' monumental work of systematic theology is now available in English, offering scholars, seminarians, and pastors valuable insight into the formative thought of this influential theologian.

The state of access to deep, historic, orthodox Reformed theology has progressed exponentially in the last decade or so. Resources previously inaccessible to many have now become available to a vastly wider audience. In my view, the capstone of this accessibility is in this masterful work of Geerhardus Vos. Vos has the singularly unique acumen and ability to summarize and state concisely some of the deepest truths of Reformed theology. This volume will now be my first recommendation to anyone who wants to understand the riches of the Bible's teaching in a compressed and clear way. Thanks to Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., to the translators, and to Lexham Press for putting this work into our hands.

This translation of Vos' Dogmatiek is the last link in access to his magnificent oeuvre. English readers will now be able to match the Princetonian's commitment to historic Reformed doctrinal orthodoxy with his pioneering work in redemptive-historical biblical theology. The interaction is refreshing as well as pace-setting. Kudos to publisher and translator alike for undertaking this project.
