Herman Bavinck website

Ron Gleason maintains a website dedicated to Herman Bavinck, the great Dutch theologian and successor to Abraham Kuyper at the VU. [HT Exiled preacher] Gleason interviewed here says of Bavinck:
Bavinck’s works are “timeless” because he always wrote in concert with Scripture. This is not to suggest that Bavinck was infallible, but he was a man thoroughly conversant with the Word of God and his writings reflect a solid acquaintance with the Bible. It should come as no surprise that many of the theological situations of Bavinck’s day (Moralism, Existentialism, Relativism, Mysticism, Subjectivism) are alive and well today. In each paragraph Bavinck provides his reader with an historical examination of the subject, thorough biblical exegesis, and a plain exposition of the matter under discussion. Many theologians today fail to recognize old heresies in their new garb. Therefore, mastery of the contents of Scripture, thoroughly acquaintance with a number of Reformed/Presbyterian confessions, and reading such a rock solid man as Herman Bavinck can only serve to benefit the Christian.
The site has numerous articles by Bavinck, photos, quotes, a bibliography and a brief biography.
