Concise Reformed Dogmatics

Concise Reformed Dogmatics by J. Van Genderen & W. H Velema is now available from WTS Books. They're currently offering it at 40% off.
When an 800 page book has "Concise" in its title, we expect a different perspective. Indeed, this book comes from the Netherlands, the land of Kuyper and Bavinck, where three- and four-volume theology texts are the rule. Indeed, Concise Reformed Dogmatics is immersed in the theological traditions and dialogues of continental Europe, though its main allegiance is to the Scriptures by which, the authors say, all dogmas must be tested. English speaking Christians should be better acquainted with the perspective of our European brothers. In this book we will get that broader picture, while being reminded that good, solid Reformed theology can be found in many locations. So the book edifies in both its similarities and its differences from the way we formulate doctrine.

  1. If anybody has read this, I would like to know if it would be any better than Reymond or Berkhof.
