This is the first volume of Berkouwer's Studies in Dogmatics I've read. I was surprised by Berkouwer's clarity and great sense of narrative. He defends a classical form of christology. There are difficult parts, especially when he is combating particular struggles within his Dutch Reformed, early half of 20th century world. But his work is very lively, with great depth. He is strong in his ability to use the authority of Scripture and the work of church in history. The biggest strength is his ability to demonstrate the tensions in any christological controversy. Easy to keep reading, however challenging the read.
