Reformed theology has always had a vibrant community of theologians. John Calvin arguably wrote the first systematic theology with his Institutes of the Christian Religion. Since Calvin’s day, luminaries like John Owen, Charles Hodge, and Louis Berkhof have articulated distinctly Reformed points of view in their now-classic systematic theologies.
In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, popular pastors and writers such as R.C. Sproul and J.I. Packer brought Calvinism into the mainstream, compelling Time magazine to call New Calvinism one of the “ten ideas changing the world right now.”
Now you can study classic works of Reformed theology at a great, low price. Combining systematic theologies with stand-alone works devoted to specific issues in theology, the Reformed Theology Bundle offers students of theology and church history a host of resources to help them dig deeper into the Reformed tradition.
For decades, Louis Berkhof’s Systematic Theology has remained one of the most important and widely-used systematic theologies, providing the clearest and most succinct articulation of Reformed theology. First published in 1932, Berkhof’s opus was considered a standard theological text as early as 1950. Since then it has been revised, reprinted, and translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, and Portuguese. Today it enjoys near-universal use in seminaries and Bible colleges across the world, and is widely cited by pastors, theologians, and students of nearly all denominational affiliations.
Studies in Dogmatics: Faith and Perseverance by G.C. Berkouwer
In a period when many voices clamor for a hearing, the clear, commanding voice of G.C. Berkouwer calls for a recommitment to the fundamentals of Reformed theology. His penetrating study begins by drawing attention to the timeless relevance of the doctrine of perseverance. This classic work by the late professor of systematic theology at the Free University of Amsterdam pays due homage to Berkouwer’s predecessors while articulating a key Reformed doctrine for a new generation.
As author J.I. Packer says of his classic work, “This book sets out in short compass what seems to me to be the permanent essentials of Christianity, viewed as both a belief system and a way of life. . . . As I often tell my students, theology is for doxology and devotion—that is, the praise of God and the practice of godliness. It should therefore be presented in a way that brings the awareness of the divine presence. Theology is at its healthiest when it is consciously under the eye of God of whom it speaks, and when it is singing His glory.” Concise Theology is one of J.I. Packer’s most popular works.
