    Fresh translation of a classic treatise on Christian belief

    In the spirit of C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, this book by eminent Calvinist thinker J. H. Bavinck offers a compact and compelling treatise on Christian belief.

    Addressing big questions that haunt every thinking human being — Why are we here? Where do we come from? What is our destiny? How should we live? — Bavinck's Riddle of Life also explores such essential topics as sin and salvation, Jesus the Redeemer, faith and idolatry, God's great plan for creation, and the ultimate purpose behind our lives.

    This lucid new translation by Bert Hielema of a classic text will make Bavinck's profound reflections on faith and the meaning of human life accessible to a new generation of seekers.
