Overview

This selection from Kuyper’s Pro Rege was translated primarily for Nigerian Christians. They are squeezed between their old Animistic worldview and the new Christian one. The new worldview itself has a rift between Western traditional Christians and Charismatics. Kuyper’s treatment of miracles plays a holistic mediating role between these three perspectives. His holistic perspective on miracles, demons and science has turned out to be of great interest for Western readers as well.

Meet the Author

Widely recognized as historian, theologian, philosopher, writer, and professor-educator, Kuyper was born in Maassluis, the son of a State Church (Reformed) pastor, later to accompany his family to the university town of Leyden, where his father accepted a charge. In 1862 Kuyper was awarded the doctor of theology from Leyden University. Having fully embraced orthodox Calvinism, Kuyper held pastorates in Utrecht, Amsterdam, and elsewhere. Prompted by his interest in the legitimacy of private schools, he became affiliated with the Anti-Revolutionary Party (opposition to godless revolution and support for the Word of God and its implications for life), ultimately becoming its head. He edited a weekly De Heraut (The Herald), "for a free church and a free church school in a free land," as well as a daily party organ, De Standaard (The Standard).
