There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: “Mine!” - Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920)

Over one hundred years ago, Dutch theologian, politician, and educator Abraham Kuyper delivered six remarkable addresses at Princeton University on the importance of Reformed theology in every part of our lives.

With passion borne from years of education and spiritual commitment, Kuyper asserted that Calvinism is a system of life that influences each aspect of human experience. Reformed theology provides a framework that leads us to obedience with God in politics, art, science, religion, and the future. It is a way of discovering how we are to relate to God, engage with others, and live well in the larger world.

Kuyper's words do more than provide historical insight into a theology that would change the lives of many. More than a century after they were first delivered, these lecture offer direction to a world looking for meaning.

Dr. Abraham Kuyper (1837–1920) was a Dutch Calvinist theologian, philosopher, and politician. As leader of the Anti-Revolutionary Party in the Netherlands, he served as Prime Minister of his country from 1901–1905. He occupied himself with the task of reconstructing the social structures of his native land on the basis of its Calvinistic heritage in almost every area of life. He developed Neo-Calvinism, which emphasizes the sovereignty of Jesus over all mental pursuits and supports the idea that there is a grace given by God to all things in order to sustain the continued unfolding of creation. Kuyper wrote a number of books, including Conservatism and Orthodoxy (1870), The Social Question and the Christian Religion (1891), and Common Grace (1902).
