Geerhardus Vos (1862-1949) has been called "the father of Reformed biblical theology." He was born in the Netherlands and emigrated to the United States in 1881. He earned degrees from Calvin Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the University of Strasbourg (PhD in Arabic). In 1894 he was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in the USA. Before beginning his thirty-nine-year tenure on Princeton's faculty, he was professor of systematic and exegetical theology at Calvin for five years. Among his writings are Biblical Theology and The Pauline Eschatology.
A pioneer in biblical theology, Geerhardus Vos continues to influence Bible students today. Vos expert James T. Dennison Jr. here collects, for the first time, all of Vos's extant letters, many of them to Abraham Kuyper, Herman Bavinck, B. B. Warfield, and J. Gresham Machen.
James T. Dennison Jr. provides:

- More than eighty letters written by Geerhardus Vos from 1883 to 1946

- The fullest biographical article on Vos to date

- A thorough bibliography of Vos's writings

- Samples of Vos's poetry

About the Author:

Vos was born in the Netherlands an emigrated to the USA in 1881. He earned degrees from Calvin Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the University of Strasbourg (Ph.D. in Arabic). In 1894 he was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in the USA. Before beginning his 39-year tenure on Princeton's faculty, he was professor of systematic and exegetical theology at Calvin for five years.

Review:

"An intimate look into the life of a figure who deserves more attention. Geerhardus Vos linked important sites in trans-Atlantic Calvinism a hundred years ago: from Amsterdam to Princeton to Grand Rapids to Philadelphia. His letters show how he built these networks and what he thought on the important theological questions that agitated them." James D. Bratt, professor of history and director, Calvin Center for Christian Scholarship, Calvin College
"Brings a man to life who has been the trait d' union between the Dutch neocalvinist movement of Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck and the American Presbyterian tradition of Benjamin B. Warfield and J. Gresham Machen. These letters are not just about theology, but present Geerhardus Vos in vivid relationship and debate with friends and colleagues. The editor has done a tremendous service for the study of the history of Reformed theology with this rich and hitherto unknown source." --George Harinck, professor of history, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands

"Geerhardus Vos was a pilgrim living between two worlds. He came from
the Old World; he flourished in the New. This life between the old and the new was a mirror of his sojourn between the present evil age and the age to come--between the now and the not yet. He belonged to the last Pilgrim--that Pioneer and Perfector. Geerhardus Vos belonged to the Lord Jesus Christ--his life was hidden with Christ in God." --From the Introduction
