Item description for Near Unto God: Daily Meditations Adapted for Contemporary Christians by Abraham Kuyper & James Calvin Schaap...
One of the most significant figures of the first part of the twentieth century, Abraham Kuyper was an esteemed pastor, theologian, journalist, and statesman. He also wrote one of the most enduring devotional works of all time, To Be Near unto God, a work that has continued to capture the hearts and souls of successive generations. Near unto God is a contemporary abridgment of Kuyper's devotional classic. James Calvin Schaap, who has been writing devotional materials for more than a decade, has here condensed Kuyper's meditations and freshened the style, making the deep spirituality of Kuyper's work accessible to contemporary Christians. Short, pithy, and imbued with inspiring reflections on the Word of God, the 110 meditations included in this work will speak anew to readers today.

More About Abraham Kuyper & James Calvin Schaap
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.
Abraham Kuyper was born in 1837 and died in 1920.
