Over a period of sixty-four years, Geerhardus Vos “put before Christendom an unmatched Reformed biblical-theological corpus,” writes Danny E. Olinger. “In [these] books, reviews, articles, sermons, and poems, Vos consistently labored to show that the diverse strands of biblical revelation from Genesis to Revelation are centered in Jesus Christ.” For the first time, passages extracted from Vos’s published and unpublished writings are organized by subject, giving twenty-first-century readers an unparalleled opportunity to learn firsthand what Vos wrote on more than 350 topics.
