Book Description

3 Jan 2011
The text, translated and introduced by James Skillen, was originally a speech by Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) that opened the first Christian Social Congress in The Netherlands on 9 November 1891. His words not only illuminate with stark simplicity many of the enduring problems of poverty, they also bring a strong and pointed biblical message that has outlived Kuyper's time and place. Roger Henderson's essay "How Abraham Kuyper Became a Kuyperian" is included in the appendix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking in these times of austerity 6 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Abraham Kuyper was a dutch vicar and prime minister in the 19th century, who became a great thinker on the subject of theology and what the world he lived in lacked or needed more of.

This excellent slim volume from the Dordt University Press is at one a christian document and a thoughtful study of a social world starting to split at the seams, this text was taken from a speech Kuyper made in 1891. There are two essays included in this volume as well, one looking at the life of Kuyper.

There are many slim,neglected volumes on amazon and this deserves attention,even if it is far from the bestseller lists of "Shades of Grey" and "Jamie Oliver Cookbooks".

Dordt Press have created a well priced and intelligent volume, the content seems very familiar in this age of austerity, as we again look at the problem of world poverty and the reasons why it still remains.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kuyper is always challenging. 31 Aug 2012
By PBS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kuyper is always a good read. This is an issue that the 21st century church needs to rethink. Kuyper lays down the groundwork for being involved in social justice without slipping into the social gospel. I rated it a little lower because some of the material is dated and situation specific and might need a little background study to understand all that is being discussed.
