How many Bavinks? Mindmap of Eglinton's Trinity and Organism Ch 2

Mindmap of James Eglinton's Trinity and Organism ch 2: "How many Bavinck's?"

Eglinton examines the thesis that has dominated Bavinck studies, the idea that there are two Bavinck's. The Reformed, orthodox theologian and the Modern, progressive academic. This bipolar reading of Bavink has been the lens through which Bavinck has been read. It is found in Jan Veenhof and more recently in VanDrunen's two-kingdom approach.

Eglinton draws upon Nelson Kloosterman to show how flawed this model is.
