Bernhardus de Moor, Volume 1 Available

It is with great delight and eager anticipation that I announce the publication of volume 1 of Bernhardus de Moor’s Continuous Commentary on Johannes a Marck’s Compendium. I should point out that the volume 1 of Dilday’s translation does not equal the entirety of volume 1 of de Moor’s work. My understanding is that it will take several volumes of Dilday’s translation to equal one volume of de Moor. Here are some things that Richard Muller says about this work:

De Moor’s efforts did for late Reformed orthodoxy what the massive system of Quenstedt did for Lutheranism in the concluding years of the seventeenth century: the work was so exhaustive and so complete in its detail and bibliography that it virtually ended the development of Reformed doctrine in the form of orthodox system (PRRD I.83)…De Moor’s work…provides evidence of the stubborn survival of theological orthodoxy, long after its era of dominance, into an otherwise rationalist era, without the loss of its scholastic balance on the issues of faith and reason, philosophy and theology, and without the loss of its scriptural principle (PRRD I.118)…massively erudite (PRRD I.146).

Tolle Lege.

    If it’s going to take several volumes just to publish de Moor’s first volume, one can only gasp at how long it’s going to take to translate and publish all seven of de Moor’s original volumes. Think I’ll wait for the movie…

    And this translation is concurrent with the translation of Matthew Poole’s equally gigantic Synopsis Criticorum.

    I believe the word you’re looking for is “ginormous.”

    How much are we paying Richard Muller to read De Moor’s tome?

    Will anyone besides Richard Muller ever get around to reading it?

    I probably will. I have it on order.
