Berkhof’s Summary of Christian Doctrine is a very concise version of his 1932 magnum opus, Systematic Theology. Berkhof’s theological views do not differ significantly from that of earlier Reformed theologians such as Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck, but his skilled summaries have proven very useful for teaching and instruction, particularly to young people and those beginning a deeper study of the Reformed tradition.
