In this work which has become significant for generations of Christians, Abraham Kuyper develops a theology of public service and cultural commitment motivated by the goodness of God towards his creation, and by a humanity shared with our contemporaries. His deep conviction is that all human life was created by God to bring him glory. His various commitments and activities were anchored in his affirmation that the Christian faith transformed all human life and that the sovereignty of Christ extended over all human activities. In this great vision, Christian life unfolds in all things by drawing on the roots of faith. This lecture series is precisely an example of this comprehensive vision of faith and life. They were given at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1898. In these six lectures, Kuyper discusses Calvinism and how it addresses subjects as diverse as politics, science, and art. This comprehensive vision of the Christian life continues to inspire generations of Christians in their vocation to be witnesses of Christ in all areas of human life.
