Item description for Lectures on Calvinism: Six Lectures Delivered at Princeton University, 1898 Under the Auspices of the L. P. Stone Foundation (Hendrickson Christian Classics) by Abraham Kuyper...

Overview
Lectures on Calvinism offers a timeless exploration of the theology and thinking of key reformer John Calvin. These six classic lectures by distinguished scholar Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) on the key figure in Reformation theology were delivered at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1898. Kuyper introduces Calvinism as a life-system, discussing its relationship to religion, politics, science, and art. According to Kuyper, Calvinism seeks to unify the cosmos under universal laws. For instance, he states that predestination proves that a set of laws exists to govern the world, and science is merely trying to figure them out. Kuyper defends Calvinism in the realm of art as well, providing a thorough and elegant explanation of this outlook on life. The collection is called Lectures on Calvinism and not lectures on Christianity because Kuyper believed that Calvinism most truthfully and most completely articulates the Biblical Christian faith.
