REFORMED ETHICS, VOL. 2 The Duties of the Christian Life Herman Bavinck; John Bolt, editor

Herman Bavinck’s four-volume Reformed Dogmatics is one of the most important theological works of the twentieth century. The English translation was edited by leading Bavinck expert John Bolt, who now brings forth a recently discovered manuscript from Bavinck that is being published for the first time. Serving as a companion to Reformed Dogmatics , Reformed Ethics offers readers Bavinck’s mature reflections on ethical issues. This book, the sec- ond of three planned volumes, covers the duties of the Christian life and includes Bavinck’s exposition of the Ten Commandments. HERMAN BAVINCK (1854–1921) succeeded Abraham Kuyper as professor of systematic theology at the Free University of Amsterdam in 1902. JOHN BOLT (PhD, University of St. Michael’s College) is professor emeritus of systematic theology at Calvin Theological Seminary, where he taught for more than twenty-five years. He is the editor of Bavinck’s four-volume Reformed Dogmatics . “In Reformed Ethics , we are invited to think with Bavinck about the concreteness of human life in the light and strength of God’s deeds for us. For that, we owe the editor and translators a great deal.” —JAMES EGLINTON, New College, University of Edinburgh “John Bolt and his accomplished team of translators and editors have added amazing value to Bavinck’s recently rediscovered manuscripts in the field of moral theology. An invaluable background study on the history of theological ethics.” —JAMES A. DE JONG, Calvin Theological Seminary “John Bolt and his colleagues have provided us with a fresh resource for theological and ethical reflection.” —CRAIG G. BARTHOLOMEW, Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics, Cambridge
