Now that Herman Bavinck's Reformed Dogmatics has been translated and released, what is next on the agenda for the Dutch Reformed Translation Society?

Petrus van Mastricht's Theologia theoretico-practica?
Godefridus Udemans' Corte ende duydelijcke Verclaringe over het Hooge-liedt Salomo (A Short and Clear Explanation of the Song of Solomon)?
Others?

If anyone is in the loop, inquiring minds would like to know. :)

I would love to see Petrus van Mastricht's Theologia theoretico-practica. I am presently making my way through Muller's Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics volumes and have been quite impressed with the citations of his work.

I'm glad to hear about Mastricht. I've been reading in Heppe's Reformed Dogmatics, and while he quotes from many excellent theologians, Mastricht is the most consistently top-drawer.

Iam also very interessed in Mastricht, i heard along time ago that Beeke was working on the translation ????

Today i got the next e-mail from Joel Beeke concerning the transelation of Mastricht:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
We had a setback, as the publisher and the translator decided not to sign the contract after all. We are now prepared to begin again with a new translator and a new publisher. This will be confirmed (hopefully!) in a few months at our biannual meeting and then the work should begin in earnest. I would estimate it to be a 8 year project

A 8 year project? :wow: We have a very long way to go yet. Don't hold your breath, folks! :(

Some of "The Scoop"

"In the loop?" Well, here's what I know. First off, there will be three more volumes in the Classics of Reformed Spirituality series. I'm not totally sure, though, what the three volumes will be. Second, Van Mastricht is the "biggy." Let's all pray it comes to fruition, despite all the set backs, the huge monetary investment this is, etc.

Also, unrelated to the DRTS is a series that Scott Clark is general editor. Reformation Heritage Books will be the publisher for a series, Classic Protestant Texts. The first volume will be William Ames' A Sketch of the Christian’s Catechism, which are his lectures on the Heidelberg Catechism. Here are the other initially proposed volumes. First, edited and updated translations of older English translations:

Beza, Patched Pelagianism
Bucanus, Institutions of the Christian Religion
Bullinger, Common Places
Musculus, Common Places
Olevian, An Exposition of the Apostles' Creed, Notes on the Epistle to the Romans, and On the Substance of the Covenant Between God and the Elect
Rennecher, A Golden Chain of Salvation
Pictet, Christian Theology
Polanus, Parts of Theology
Polyander, Rivet, Thysius, and Walaeus, Synopsis Purioris
Trelcatius, Common Places
Ursinus, Learned Discourses and new edition of his Commentary on the Heidelberg
Wollebius, Compendium
