About Abraham Kuyper
Abraham Kuyper (1837–1920) was born in Maassluis in the Netherlands. He studied at the University of Leiden, and received his doctorate there in 1863. He became a minister in the Dutch Reformed Church in 1863, and consistently called for the separation of church and state. He also led a succession from the Dutch Reformed Church, and he united several disparate Reformed churches in the Netherlands. In 1880, he founded the Free University in Amsterdam and served as a professor of theology. At the invitation of B.B. Warfield, Kuyper traveled to the United States to deliver the Stone Lectures at Princeton, and he addressed Reformed congregations in Michigan and Iowa.
Kuyper also led an active political life. He served as a member of Parliament in the Netherlands beginning in 1874, and served as prime minister from 1901 to 1905. He was instrumental in the development of Neo-Calvinism, and he is remembered for his articulation of common grace and for popularizing the notion of a Reformed worldview. He has influenced such notable figures as Francis Schaeffer, Cornelius Van Til, Alvin Plantinga, Nicholas Wolterstorff, and Chuck Colson.
