Geerhardus Vos (1862-1949) has been called "the father of Reformed biblical theology." He was born in the Netherlands and emigrated to the United States in 1881. He earned degrees from Calvin Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the University of Strasbourg (PhD in Arabic). In 1894 he was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in the USA. Before beginning his thirty-nine-year tenure on Princeton's faculty, he was professor of systematic and exegetical theology at Calvin for five years. Among his writings are Biblical Theology and The Pauline Eschatology.
A pioneer in biblical theology, Geerhardus Vos continues to influence Bible students today. Vos expert James T. Dennison Jr. here collects, for the first time, all of Vos's extant letters, many of them to Abraham Kuyper, Herman Bavinck, B. B. Warfield, and J. Gresham Machen.
