Does theological inquiry belong to the church or the university? Is God properly understood within the Church, or within secular contexts? As an unapologetic Calvinist, Kuyper offers a sweeping overview of the history, the task, the method, and the organization of theology. He places theology alongside the sciences, and calls for more interaction between theology and the other disciplines. The Encyclopedia of Sacred Theology: Its Principles helped fuel the rise of Neocalvinism in the twentieth century and continues to undergird Reformed theology in the twenty-first. The Encyclopedia of Sacred Theology: Its Principles also includes an introduction by B. B. Warfield.

Abraham Kuyper

Abraham Kuyper (1837–1920) was the Prime Minister of the Netherlands between 1901 and 1905. 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 address Reformed congregations in Michigan and Iowa.

Kuyper 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 secession from the Dutch Reformed Church and united several disparate Reformed churches in the Netherlands.

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 1901–1905.

Abraham Kuyper was instrumental in the development of Neocalvinism, and 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.

Some of Kuyper’s publications, which are available in Logos, include Wisdom & Wonder: Common Grace in Science & Art, The Antithesis between Symbolism and Revelation, and Encyclopedia of Sacred Theology: Its Principles.
