In The Beginning

Herman Bavinck, In the Beginning: Foundations of Creation Theology. Edited with an introduction by John Bolt; translated by John Vriend.  Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1999. 

This paperback is a translation of chapter 5 in volume II of the author’s Reformed Dogmatics: “Concerning the World in Its Original State.” It is the society’s second release, and was designed to give further visibility to the entire project as it was moving ahead. The editor selected this section because of “Bavinck’s relentless efforts to understand and, where he finds appropriate, either to affirm, correct, or repudiate modern scientific claims in light of scriptural and Christian teaching.” (13) While reflecting his own times, the material’s balance and biblical fidelity continues to speak to issues of faith and science today.
