Herman Bavinck's four-volume Reformed Dogmatics is one of the most important theological works of the twentieth century. Leading Bavinck expert John Bolt edited that work, which has received wide acclaim. Now Bolt brings forth a recently discovered manuscript from Bavinck, in print for the first time, which serves as a companion to Reformed Dogmatics. Reformed Ethics mines the moral teachings of the early church and medieval and Puritan spirituality while addressing a variety of topics, offering readers Bavinck's mature reflections on ethical issues. This book is the first of three planned volumes.
Comparison of the Reformed Ethics manuscript with the van der Veen and Lindeboom manuscripts shows that Bavinck, at least in 1884–86 and 1894–95, delivered his lectures on ethics from his Reformed Ethics manuscript.
