The Wonderful Works of God, an English translation of Herman Bavinck’s Magnalia Dei, is now widely available. Magnalia Dei has long been prized as a faithful one-volume summary of systematic theology. This English translation by Henry Zylstra was originally published in 1956 under the title Our Reasonable Faith. The new edition contains many enhancements: Bavinck’s original foreword (previously unavailable in English), an introduction by R. Carlton Wynne, and a useful scripture and subject index. The typesetting has also been updated.
The book has received several favorable reviews. For example, in his review Brian Mattson describes Magnalia Dei as perhaps “the best single-volume Reformed systematic theology ever produced.“
