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.
Volume five, Ecclesiology, The Means of Grace, Eschatology, completes the project of translating Geerhardus Vos' work into English and forwards a clear and ordered presentation of the essence and organization of the church; the Word of God, baptism, and the Lord's Supper as means of grace; and the doctrine of last things.
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 on ecclesiology, the means of grace, and eschatology.

Until recently, Reformed Dogmatics was only available in its original Dutch. But now you too can access Geerhardus Vos' monumental work of systematic theology. This brand-new English translation was edited by biblical theologian and Vos expert, Richard B. Gaffin, Jr.
In Volume Five: Ecclesiology, The Means of Grace, Eschatology, Vos discusses:
--The essence and organization of the church
--The Word of God, baptism, and the Lords Supper as means of grace
--The doctrine of last things in both individual and general terms

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.
--K. Scott Oliphint, professor of apologetics and systematic theology, Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia)
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.
--James T. Dennison, Jr., academic dean and professor of church history and biblical theology, Northwest Theological Seminary
