Since this book is on sale right now, would this be a good book for me to pick up and read as a Systematic Theology major?

Sounds good. I'll look at getting that resource. I do have Reformed Dogmatics as well from him.

Reformed Dogmatics is a systematic theology, but Vos is better known as the father of biblical theology -- which attempts to show the cohesive storyline of the history of redemption throughout the Bible. As Everett said, anything by Vos is worth it, but it may take some work. He can be dense; but that may not be a challenge to an aspiring systematic theology major!

If you think from a Reformed perspective, you will probably appreciate Vos.

It's a little dated (1903), but it's worthwhile for the first few chapters. His style is lucid, informed, and fair.

His language about the kingdom of God being now "spiritual" will grate on some readers, and that approach severely undermines the later chapters IMHO.

Still, at the price...

Yes. I haven't read it, but I've seen it cited many times. That's a signal to me to pick up a book.

Also worthwhile to buy at $5 as it might work into dynamic pricing in a Reformed L7 package.

 I don't always drink bottled water but when I do I drink  Vos  because it helps me understand Vos's  writings! ;)

Ps. Yes, I know..."Voss" water is with double "s" and not one like the last name.
