Calvinism For a Secular Age: A Twenty-First Century Reading of Abraham Kuyper's Stone Lectures

Jessica R. Joustra, Robert J. Joustra

Paperback 2022-02-08

Publisher Description

Abraham Kuyper, the Dutch Neo-Calvinist theologian, pastor, and politician, was well-known for having declared that there is "not a square inch" of human existence over which Jesus Christ is not its sovereign Lord.This principle is perhaps best reflected in Kuyper's writings on Calvinism originally delivered as the Stone Lectures in 1898 at Princeton Theological Seminary. These lectures reflecting on the role of the Christian faith in a variety of social spheres--including religion, politics, science, and art--have become a touchstone for contemporary Reformed theology.How might the lectures continue to inform the church's calling in a secular age? In this volume, Jessica Joustra and Robert Joustra bring together theologians, historians, scientists, and others to revisit Kuyper's original lectures and to critically consider both his ongoing importance and his complex legacy for today.
