The Neo-Calvinist International

Kuyper ProfileI haven’t had the opportunity to post much over here lately, but I thought I’d share one reason why: I’ve been engaged in developing a new series, Abraham Kuyper Collected Works in Public Theology published by Lexham Press. This is a twelve volume collection of Kuyper’s major works on culture, common grace, politics, economics, education, Islam, the church, and more. The set will appear in print as well as in a digital version on Logos Bible Software.

More details about the series, including information about the first volume, a translation of Kuyper’s commentary on the Anti-Revolutionary Party platform (Our Program), are available at the site. Here’s a brief video as well about Kuyper and the series.

I promise not to post about this project so often that I threaten to turn the site into the Neo-Calvinist International, but I will try to pass along excerpts and sneak previews that I think might be of particular interest or value.

To wit: if you want to get a better sense of what’s in store, I recommend taking advantage of the complimentary (free!) downloads of three significant excerpts, which consist of 2 convocation addresses (“Scholarship”); a sermon on the church as institute and organism (“Rooted & Grounded”); and essays on common grace in science and art (“Wisdom & Wonder”).
