Publisher's Description

Fresh translation of a classic treatise on Christian belief

In the spirit of C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, this book by eminent Calvinist thinker J. H. Bavinck offers a compact and compelling treatise on Christian belief.

Addressing big questions that haunt every thinking human being — Why are we here? Where do we come from? What is our destiny? How should we live? — Bavinck's Riddle of Life also explores such essential topics as sin and salvation, Jesus the Redeemer, faith and idolatry, God's great plan for creation, and the ultimate purpose behind our lives.

This lucid new translation by Bert Hielema of a classic text will make Bavinck's profound reflections on faith and the meaning of human life accessible to a new generation of seekers.

Editorial Reviews

John Bolt
— Calvin Theological Seminary
"Who are we? Why are we here? What and how do we know? What does it all mean? This apologetic for the Christian faith in today's world is not so much an argument as it is concrete, experience-based, persuasive poetry drawing the reader into an exciting journey of discovery and meaning. A perfect gift for college-age students or others wrestling with the deepest questions of life."

Charles Van Engen
— Fuller Theological Seminary
"Here is a winsome, clear, concise, and inviting presentation of the basis for the Christian faith. . . . Persons of all ages and cultures who are asking deep questions about life's significance and purpose will find The Riddle of Life accessible, very contemporary, and profoundly meaningful."
