Abraham Kuyper has long passed from the scene, but his influence still remains. Indeed, there is widespread and serious interest not only in Kuyper but also in Kuyperian themes among a new generation of thinkers.

The Abraham Kuyper Center for Public Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary was established in admiration of Kuyper, whose life as pastor, theologian, journalist, and politician remarkably exemplifies how confidence in the truth of a Christian conception of the world can be expressed in both theory and practice.

Many but not all of the chapters in this volume come from the Kuyper Conference of 2008, the theme of which was “Sphere Sovereignty and Civil Society.” Most of these essays thus have a broadly “political” character, some addressing contemporary issues, others of a more historical nature. Of special interest in this volume is a summary/translation of Kuyper’s 1907 essay “The Enigma of Islam,” never before published in English.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
