Abraham Kuyper: A Centennial Reader
5 of 5 stars to Abraham Kuyper: A Centennial Reader edited by James D. Bratt
Even though it took me more than five years to finish this book, I loved it. James Bratt collected and introduced sixteen of Kuyper’s essays on a variety of subjects such as modernism, common grace, Calvinism and constitutional liberties, evolution, sphere sovereignty, and education. I found this unique photo in the book, and found some current application for his thoughts on sanctimoniousness and powerlessness.
Should you read this? Probably not first, though it does give a bunch of Kuyper’s foundational thoughts in one volume.
I’d recommend starting with Lectures on Calvinism, then Wisdom and Wonder, and then Our Worship. I’ve started making my way through his Collected Works in Public Theology, but it’s quite a number of thumb’s-widths wide.
