Herman Bavinck

My excuse for this post is that Bavinck cites JE quite a few times in his dogmatics. My real reason is that I think Bavinck is an excellent theologian and these two biographical essays are worth reading. You should, of course, read the translation of his dogmatics, especially volume three. I think that most of Bavinck's understanding of Edwards is mediated through Warfield, Hodge, and particularly the 1907 essay by Jan Ridderbos De Theologie van Jonathan Edwards

I've taught some courses on "End of Creation" by Edwards, and I noticed when reading through Bavinck's "God and Creation" (volume 2, I think) that he quotes Edwards' "End of Creation" when he himself discusses why a self-sufficient God would freely create a world He does not need. I agree--Bavinck is worth reading.
