The Works of Herman Ridderbos

The Works of Herman RidderbosSince I first encountered Herman Ridderbos in seminary, I’ve been a fan of his writings and theology. I chose him as my theologian to study and present on in Advanced New Testament Theology. His writings changed the way I read and understand Scripture, helping me to see the more objective, redemptive-historical themes where I was inclined to see more subjective individualism. So I’m happy to see his works be made available to a broader audience who may not otherwise be acquainted with Ridderbos.

One of the great things about my job at Logos Bible Software is that I get to give input into what works we pursue and add to our offerings, which now number more than 26,000 resources (19,000 from Logos and 7,000 from Vyrso). I’ve been pushing for Ridderbos’s works for a while, so I was excited to see a collection go up on Pre-Pub earlier this week.

It includes the following nine volumes (listed in chronological order):

The collection is nearly complete and is missing only three of his English works:

    Now that Ridderbos is being worked on how about Vos?

      We’ve been working on Vos for a while. The biggest holdup is his Biblical Theology, which isn’t in the public domain and the right holder of which is difficult to contact/work with. We’re getting close.

    Thanks for pushing for the publication of Ridderbos on Logos – I’m stepping my way through “The Coming of the Kingdom” and each day find gold within.
