Herman Bavinck and Abraham Kuyper were responsible for the revival of orthodox Calvinism in the late 19th century. Bavinck's summary of Christianity in a nutshell is this: the creation by the Father has been devastated by sin, restored through the death of the Son, and re-created by the Spirit into the kingdom of God. A meticulously researched, definitive presentation. 480 pages, hardcover. Baker.
