    Description"The definitive biography of Abraham Kuyper, giant of Dutch Calvinism"This is the first full-scale English-language biography of the highly influential and astonishingly multifaceted Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) -- theologian, minister, politician, newspaper editor, educational innovator, Calvinist reformer, and prime minister of the Netherlands from 1901 to 1905.James Bratt is the ideal scholar to tell the story of Kuyper's remarkable life and work. He expertly traces the origin and development of Kuyper's signature concepts -- common grace, Christian worldview, sphere sovereignty, Christian engagement with contemporary culture -- in the dynamic context of his life's story. Based on voluminous primary and secondary Dutch sources, Bratt's "Abraham Kuyper: Modern Calvinist, Christian Democrat" will prove to be the go-to biography of this major figure whose ideas and influence extend far beyond his own time and place.

    Review quote
    Richard J. Mouw-- Fuller Theological Seminary"At last! This is what many of us have been waiting for -- a careful, detailed, and highly readable(!) biography of Kuyper in all of his human complexity. Jim Bratt has given us the comprehensive study of 'Father Abraham' that will serve English speakers for years to come."Nicholas Wolterstorff-- Yale University"Abraham Kuyper was such a titanic figure in the Netherlands during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, such a volcano of prodigious energy and imagination in so many areas of life, that I have long assumed that his genius would elude capture by any biographer. James Bratt's biography, "Abraham Kuyper: Modern Calvinist, Christian Democrat", proves that I was mistaken. This is Kuyper -- not always likable, but always astounding. And it's a page-turner besides."Anthony B. Bradley-- The King's College, New York City"James Bratt has written what can only be called the definitive biography of Abraham Kuyper. With engrossing scholarship and style, Bratt provides indispensable reading for anyone interested in postindustrial Christian social thought. . . . Will undoubtedly become a classic."George Marsden-- University of Notre Dame"Bratt has done a marvelous job of setting Kuyper's multifaceted interests, activities, and ideas in their historical contexts. With wit and insight Bratt depicts Kuyper not only as a great man but also as a real person of his times, complete with faults and blind spots that Calvinists recognize as inevitable even among their saints."
