by Abraham Kuyper
translated by Albert Gootjes
volume edited by John Kok & Nelson D. Kloosterman
series edited by Melvin Flikkema & Jordan J. Ballor
In Pro Rege, Kuyper shows how the kingship of Christ affects all areas of life, building upon the work he began in Common Grace. In his view, seeing Jesus as King is foundational to bridging the gap between the believer’s life inside the church and outside the church. In this first volume, Kuyper examines how the kingdom of Satan opposes, undermines, and obscures the kingship of Christ. He follows this by laying out the Scriptural foundation for the kingship of Christ and beginning to uncover its implications for all of creation.
About the Abraham Kuyper Collected Works in Public Theology
Abraham Kuyper (1837–1920) was one of the most extraordinary individuals of his time: the founder of a political party, a university, and a Reformed denomination, the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, and an incredibly prolific author on a dizzying array of subjects. Despite these accomplishments, his importance and contribution have not been widely recognized in North America.
Lexham Press is pleased to announce the publication of a major series of new translations of Kuyper’s writings in public theology. Created in partnership with the Abraham Kuyper Translation Society and the Acton Institute, the Abraham Kuyper Collected Works in Public Theology will mark a historic moment in Kuyper studies, and we hope it will deepen and enrich the church’s interest and engagement in public theology.
