Introducing Herman Bavinck

Tuesday at Twin Lakes Fellowship, Dr. Ron Gleason presented an introduction to the life and writings of Herman Bavinck. His address is divided into six sections: (1) Bavinck the Pastor, (2) Bavinck the Theologian, (3) Bavinck the Churchman, (4) Bavinck the Man with Warts, (5) Bavinck the Statesman, and (6) Bavinck the Author.

An excellent summary was published by Nicholas Batzig here and audio of the address can be downloaded here or listed to online here:

Also, Gleason distributed two papers at the conference, including a helpful biographical sketch, which you can download here:

Dr. Herman Bavinck (1854-1921): A Short Sketch of a Reformed Theologian, Pastor, Churchman, & Statesman.” [57 page PDF]

Herman Bavinck’s Understanding of John Calvin on the Lord’s Supper” [32 page PDF].

Finally, Dr. Gleason has completed a full-length biography of Bavinck for P&R. The bio should be available by the end of 2009 or the beginning of 2010.

  1. I was at a used bookstore yesterday and, based solely on what I’ve read at your site, I purchased a copy of Herman Bavinck’s “Our Reasonable Faith” (only four bucks !). I haven’t read any of his works yet but was wondering if you can tell me about this one.

    Thanks for all the resources and great work you do at this site !

  2. Tony: I was noting your posting of October, 2006 where you made mention of the “Eneny Within” conference given by Kris Lundgaard that you attended. I am resourcing the messages from that conference and was wondering if you know if there was any outlines or notebook that was made available at that conference. If so, I’m trying to track down how I could get one (them). Any thoughts you have would be most appreciated.
