On Kuyper: A Collection of Readings on the Life, Work & Legacy of Abraham Kuyper
Access This Book
Abraham Kuyper, theologian, church reformer, politician, journalist, statesman, prime minister, founder of a church denomination, a university, and a political party, was born in Maassluis in the nineteenth century, he died in The Hague in the twentieth century, but his impact and legacy stretch well into the twenty-first century.
In this volume we have scholars using the Kuyperian framework to critique and develop Christian perspectives on the church, miracles, education, politics, scholarship, fashion, art, science... as Kuyper famously declared: "no single piece of our mental world is to be hermetically sealed off from the rest, and there is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: 'Mine!'" No area of life is exempt from the claims of the risen Christ. This was certainly true for Kuyper, he not only preached it, he lived it.
Kuyper has been described as a renaissance man, and this renaissance man is certainly undergoing a renaissance. This reader, a collection of articles written on the life, work, and legacy of Kuyper, provides evidence that work on Kuyper and Kuyperianism is alive and well. This book provides and introduction to Kuyper's life and thought through the eyes of others. The breadth and scope of these articles all stand as testimony to Kuyper's desire to see the lordship of Christ extended to every area of life.
