Publishers Description
Abraham Kuyper (1837 - 1920) is a significant figure in the history of the Netherlands and one of the most remarkable figures in the annals of Calvinism. Kuyper celebrated the Reformed founders, subscribed heart and soul to their teachings, and worked ceaselessly to restore their authority in an age that had either forgotten them or contradicted their word. From their theology, Kuyper extruded a whole worldview, and by that worldview he hoped to refashion the politics, scholarship, art, and social arrangements of his time. "Calvinism" was his soul and system, the purest form of Christianity, the treasure of the past, the hope of the future. This anthology, published in the centennial year of Kuyper's famous Stone Lectures, gathers sixteen key writings by Kuyper never before available in English. Included are his definitive statements on politics, education, culture, and the religious currents and social problems of his time. Also included are Kuyper's own conversion narrative, his critiques of Modernism and of Holiness theology, his proposals on common grace and Calvinist politics, his reflections on a culture in thrall to pantheism and evolution, and his classic address on "sphere sovereignty." In his introduction, editor James Bratt sets Kuyper's work in its 19th century context and shows the relevance of his ideas to contemporary debates on modernism, evangelicalism, and fundamentalism. Bratt also provides helpful explanatory notes and a brief introduction to each piece. Photographs, cartoons, and short excerpts from some of Kuyper's better-known works make this an attractive volume that will stand as the definitive Kuyper anthology for years to come.

More About Abraham Kuyper & James D. Bratt

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Dr. Abraham Kuyper (1837???1920) was a Dutch Calvinist theologian, philosopher, and politician. As leader of the Anti-Revolutionary Party in the Netherlands, he served as Prime Minister of his country from 1901??? 1905. He occupied himself with the task of reconstructing the social structures of his native land on the basis of its Calvinistic heritage in almost every area of life. He developed Neo-Calvinism, which emphasizes the sovereignty of Jesus over all mental pursuits and supports the idea that there is a grace given by God to all things in order to sustain the continued unfolding of creation.

Abraham Kuyper was born in 1837 and died in 1920.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful Anthology of Kuyper's Works  Nov 3, 2003
James D. Bratt's collection of Kuyper includes works that underlie a lot of the philosophy/theology and history put into Kuyper's Lectures on Calvinism. Much of the work in here has to do with criticism of the theological liberalism of his time and the philosophical problems raised by opposing thinkers.

The book is broken into four sections: (1) reflections on early life; (2) church and theology; (3) politics and society; (4) culture and education. Key works among these include "Modernism: A Fata Morgana in the Christian Domain" which criticizes theological liberalism; selections from his three volume set on common grace; and his inaugural address at Free University on the sphere of sovereignty (among others). The book also includes a brief biographical discussion on Kuyper related to the above four sections.

Last, this book throughout includes short snip-its from Kuyper's popular publications (e.g., De Standaard). I highly recommend this for those wanting to learn about Kuyper; otherwise, good luck finding another means of getting an English translation!
