Episode Description

The Dutch theologian Abraham Kuyper famously said these words in a speech he gave when he opened a new university:

“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”

Jessica Joustra and Robert Joustra are the editors of a new book titled Calvinism for a Secular Age: A Twenty-First-Century Reading of Abraham Kuyper’s Stone Lectures (IVP, 2022)

It’s a book that features contemporary Christian theologians, historians, scientists, and artists applying to today the concepts Kuyper introduced to America in 1898 in his famous Stone Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary. These lectures, reflecting on the role of the Christian faith in a variety of social spheres, emphasized that our Christian faith addresses every aspect of life. This book seeks to bring those concepts into the 21st Century.

Jessica Joustra (Ph.D., Fuller Theological Seminary) is Assistant Professor of Religion and Theology at Redeemer University and an associate researcher at the Neo-Calvinist Research Institute at the Theological University of Kampen in The Netherlands.

Robert J. Joustra (Ph.D., University of Bath) is Associate Professor of Politics & International Studies at Redeemer University and the Director of the Albert M. Wolters Centre for Christian Scholarship.

Jessica and Robert live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada with their new son Jacob.
