book cover

Pro Rege means for the king.” This is volume 1 of 3 by that title, and it includes various articles by Abraham Kuyper on the subject of The Exalted Nature of Christ’s Kingship.” These books are part of the larger series called his Collected Works in Public Theology,” and though I should have read the Common Grace volumes first, I was no less edified skipping ahead to Pro Rege. Here’s just one quote out of the 576 pages, but a relevant reminder:

Only when the anti-Christian power has exerted its greatest force and unfolded all of its unholy potential will the final battle be worthy of Christ; then He will celebrate a suitable victory after destroying that power in its full deployment.” (421)
