Abraham Kuyper 02 Sphere Sovereignty a Political Theory

Part 2 of a 5 part series.
Organization: Davenant
Price: $4.00

In this lecture, Dr. Bratt draws attention to the wide range of political ideas that Kuyper developed during his many years of political activism in the Netherlands, which go well beyond the clichéd concept of sphere sovereignty, and offer a robust model of Christian communitarianism that can challenge the dichotomies of left and right today. About the event: The Convivium Calvinisticum is an annual event sponsored by the Davenant Trust. The Convivium brings together a small group of scholars, pastors, and students for fellowship and discussion each June. Our goal is to foster a network of men and women dedicated to historically-informed, irenic engagement with the challenges facing contemporary Protestantism and committed to civic engagement and renewal. The theme of the 2014 Convivium was "Creation, Redemption, and Neo-Calvinism," wrestling with the recurring dualities between Christ and culture, church and state, spiritual and temporal, sacred and secular, that have structured much of Christian and particularly Reformed theology. The full proceedings of the conference (of which only a sampling are made available here) will be published in a forthcoming volume, For the Healing of the Nations: Creation, Redemption, and Neo-Calvinism.
