A full treatment of Reformed systematic theology, this volume is accessible to church officers and interested lay readers, as well as teachers and students of theology. Like the celebrated Dutch edition, it is formatted with two visually distinct levels of discussion for use either as an introduction to theology or in an advanced study.
J. van Genderen and W. H. Velema provide a complete, single-volume discussion of the many themes that belong in the dogmatics handbook: revelation, God, the decree of God, creation, providence, man as God's image, sin, Christ the mediator, the covenant of grace, salvation, the church, the means of grace, and eschatology. They take into account contemporary problems and deal critically with views of modern theology.
Doctrine and life form a unity, the authors believe, and the knowledge and study of theology are of direct importance to ethics, preaching, and the life of faith
