Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics: The Rise and Development of Reformed Orthodoxy, ca. 1520 to ca. 1725 (4 vols.)
Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics examines how specific doctrines of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries developed and their influence in shaping what we recognize today as the Protestant church. Richard Muller has undertaken this historical study to explain the development of the doctrine of this important period of church history and its ongoing relevance for the church.
These four volumes, two of which are available for the first time, examine theological preliminaries, Scripture as the foundation of theology, God's existence, attributes, and nature, and the Trinity. Available individually or as a set, they comprise a significant contribution to scholarship and are essential reading for serious students of the Reformation.
Will Revolutionize Reformed Protestant Historiography

First, in response to a previous reviewer: a single sentence lifted from a page deep within this erudite work does not prove that its design is solely for Th.D. & D.D students. The fact of the matter is, while certain isolated sections are for the advanced student, any learned layperson with a passion for historical theology will be able to understand what's contained in these four volumes.
Dr. Richard A. Muller of Calvin Theological Seminary (Grand Rapids, MI) has, after much toil; finally completed his magnum opus began some twenty-five years ago. The first two volumes, which were published in 1987 & 1993, respectively, are largely rewritten. Also present in these two volumes, not included in the first editions, are exhaustive indices.
This extended treatise is indeed intended for the lay or professional scholar and the very detailed Table of Contents makes that manifestly clear. Every historian working in this particular area and peripheral disciplines will... read more

In the world of Christian literature, if an author writes for an educated audience, he is accused of being inaccessable and difficult; neither accusation sticks for Muller, though he does write for an educated audience. After all, who in our day is interested in post-Reformation Reformed dogmatics except the theologically educated?
Richard Muller's work is an welcome antidote for decades of abusive misreadings of the Reformed Scholastics (the theologians who came after the Reformation and stood in the Reformed tradition). Muller has done us the great (and laborious) service of examining the theology of the generations of Reformed Scholastics by their own works, not through the eyes of their various theological interpreters.
The work is ordered with clarity and precision. Vol. 1, Prolegomena to Theology, discusses the nature of theological knowledge. Vol. 2, Holy Scripture, developes various aspects of the doctrine of Scripture. Vol. 3 discusses the essence... read more

As one who has spent a significant amount of time working with Protestant Scholasticism I can assure you that this is the product of a an extremely fine mind working for decades on this subject. The scholarship is simply remarkable. Richard Muller is a man steeped in primary sources that few bother to read, though much is assumed of this oft maligned time period. Muller is a man on a mission determined to redeem Reformed Orthodoxy from the opproprium it endures for its supposed departure from Calvin himself. You may not agree with his conclusions but he is well armed as he makes his case in these magisterial volumes.
