Creating a Christian worldview: Abraham Kuyper's Lectures on Calvinism
In this centennial year of the delivery of Abraham Kuyper's famous Stone Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary, this volume offers a valuable analysis of Kuyper's thought and the worldview that is his legacy. Peter Heslam discusses Kuyper's ideas in their context by providing a historical commentary on the book in which they receive their most significant expression, Lectures on Calvinism.
Heslam begins by reviewing Kuyper's importance in the history of ideas and explains why Lectures on Calvinism is still of special interest. In the main body of the book Heslam provides a probing analysis of each of the six lectures in turn. Central to Heslam's analysis is a discussion of the motivation of Kuyper's thought: why did he maintain the standpoints he did, and what did he hope to achieve by doing so? In answering this question, Heslam explores Kuyper's position relative to others of his time and in connection with the events of his career.
