Emphasizing the historical character of biblical revelation, Vos was able to clarify the pervasive meaning of Scripture by bringing into view its basic structure. Far from an array of isolated proof texts, the Bible was, for Vos, an organism—its rich diversity giving unanimous expression of its redemptive message.

In Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation, the shorter writings of this famed theologian have been gathered under one cover. The reader will discover here numerous major biblical and theological studies, selected addresses, and book reviews, as well as a 13-page bibliography of Vos's writings.


"An important publishing venture . . .  for it makes available a large number of writings of a notable hologian which had previously been difficult to obtain. . . . Especially our ministers, but also all those who are interested in theology, ought to purchase this book."

—H. Hanko

"There are great riches in this volume for the student of theology. All who are convinced of the importance of biblical theology and thoroughgoing scholarship will prize this collection."

Evangelical Presbyterian

"Dr. Gaffin gives us an interesting introduction. . . .[Vos] is well worth reading for the biblical insights given."
