Second edition. Now a two-volume set. A clear,
systematic study and exposition of Reformed theology written by one who
held the Chair of Dogmatics for some forty years at a Reformed seminary.
Divided into the six generally accepted branches of theology (theology,
anthropology, Christology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology),
this profound, scholarly work is logical, scripturally sound, and faithful
to the Reformed creeds and traditions.
"... those who are eager to refresh and enrich their
knowledge of the Reformed faith will do well to give
preference to this volume" (The Banner).
"At a time when
flighty faddism threatens to destroy true theology, it is
good to have some more solid works. Persevering and
judicious reading of this work will probably contribute more
to genuine theological education than skimming through the
latest pseudo-doctrinal 'thrillers'" (Christianity Today).
"This is a solid work representing the mature thought of a
thorough-going Reformed theologian. Replete with Scriptural
documentation, Hoeksema's work goes beyond simply
proof-texting in many cases to enhance its value with
exegetical discussion of key doctrinal passages" (The

"Herman Hoeksema was truly blessed
with a mind for theology and showed a profound knowledge all
of the works of theologians around throughout his life. From
going through this carefully, its clear that Hoeksema has
read around the entire spectrum of theological topics,
devoting his entire life to the knowledge of the truth in
God's Word. Out of all the
systematic theologies I've read, I would definitely give
this work a 10 out of 10!" - S.
"This work is written not in an
abstract, scholastic manner, but in an air that breathes
forth the fear and awe of a sovereign, omnipotent, holy,
inscrutable God. This book shows that true doctrine exalts
God and abases man—completely, without compromise. Unlike
most other systematic theologies, even Reformed ones, this
book is unashamed in its perusal of logically harmonizing
all of Scripture, which of course is the whole point of
SYSTEMATIC theology—and which is nothing else than that most
fundamental of hermeneutical principles, Scripture
interprets Scripture. The result is a huge canvas, composed
of many different threads and colours, which however give a
picture that is most beautiful, wholesome and fitting,
without contradictory parts. Anyone who loves Scripture and
the God of Scripture will find this book a treasure chest.
After reading this book, or if using it as a reference (or
better, both), the Scriptures will become much clear to the
reader. Only complaint—I wish the author had covered even
more topics than the multitude he already covered!" -
