This book is a must read for those interested in Biblical theology. There are some great chapters on 'Eschatology in the New Testament' and the 'Eschatological Aspect of the Pauline Conception of the Spirit.' The chapters on Hebrews are excellent, along with the chapter on Reformed Covenant theology. This collection of essays is outstanding along with Dr. Richard Gaffin's superb introduction.

Dr. Richard Gaffin compiled the most significant articles and reviews by Geerhardus Vos in 1980. This book provides the shortest path to the profound theological world of Vos.
