Reformed Dogmatics, Anthropology, Volume 2 by Geerhardus Vos, edited Richard B. Gaffin and published by Lexham Press.
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.
The second volume of Reformed Dogmatics examines anthropology, with a focus on the nature of humanity, sin, and the covenant of grace. He begins his examination of human nature with the question: What does scripture say about the nature of humanity? From there, Vos examines the relationship between the body and the soul. In hamartiology, Vos surveys various philosophical perspectives on sin and investigates the claims of Scripture. The volume concludes with a lengthy study of God's covenants with humanity through the Old Testament culminating with the New Covenant.
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.
