An Introduction to Abraham Kuyper’s Public Theology

Session 7
Introductory Course

Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) was a man of many talents and achievements. He edited two newspapers, founded a university, led the formation of a new denomination, championed a new political movement, and served as prime minister of the Netherlands. He was also a formidable controversialist, a brilliant theologian, and a tireless advocate of public justice. This session will introduce his “public theology,” that is, his vision of social life and its theological foundations, with special emphasis on his understanding of common grace, sphere sovereignty, and principled pluralism.
