The lecture Kuyper’s Common Grace ‘Christianizing of Culture’ – Reformed Calling or Ecclesiastical Suicide? will be given at Sunshine Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, MI on September 26, 2014. Here are details from the lecture website:
The speaker will be David J. Engelsma, professor of theology in the Protestant Reformed Churches in America.
The occasion for the lecture is the significant project of the translation into English for the first time of the noted Dutch theologian and statesman, Abraham Kuyper’s, influential work, Common Grace (originally three volumes in Dutch).
The lecture will examine the present project of “Christianizing” the culture by a common grace of God in light of Scripture, the Christian creeds, and the history of Kuyper’s common grace project in his own Netherlands.
The occasion of the lecture indicates the interest it ought to have for all Reformed Christians and for members of the Roman Catholic Church. The topic itself–the relation of the Christian to the increasingly corrupt way of life in the United States, not excluding Western Michigan–ought to be of vital concern to every man, woman, and child who confess themselves disciples of Jesus Christ in a wicked world.
