The Kuyper Center Review, vol. 4: Calvinism and Democracy


Eerdmans 2014

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Abraham Kuyper was a principal force, both political and intellectual, behind the democratization of politics and public life that occurred in the Netherlands at the close of the nineteenth century. This volume reflects on that legacy, not only examining its theological roots and historical context but also assessing democracy’s prospects in our own day and considering the ways in which Reformed theology might provide resources for democratic criticism and renewal.

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.
