Recent Kuyperania (February 2014)

A review of Kuyper's Wisdom and Wonder at

Kuyperian Politics by Steven Wedgeworth at Calvinist International

Kuyper's "Commentary on the Heidelberg Catechism Lord’s Day 42 (1895)" is translated in the latest issue of Markets & Morality. In the editorial Jordan Ballor writes:
In this issue of the journal, on the occasion of the Heidelberg Catechism’s 450th anniversary, we are pleased to publish an original translation of the Dutch theologian and statesman Abraham Kuyper’s treatment of Lord’s Day 42, an expansive and challenging exploration of the significance of the Christian understanding of stewardship as it relates to ethics and economics. Together these anniversaries of the closing of the Council of Trent and the publication of the Heidelberg Catechism testify to the ongoing significance and relevance of the reformation movements of the early modern period, extending spiritual realities even to matters as mundane as business and economics.
Also in Markets & Morality is Harry van Dyke's review of Kuiper's Annotated Bibliography of Kuyper.

The long-awaited publication of De Bruijn's illustated biograpjy of Kuyper has now been released. On the Eerdmans blog are a few photos from the book.

Chris Leahman in The Nation takes a look the recent books by Worthern and Marsden. He comments on Marsden's plea for a return to a kuyperian approach:
Marsden is proposing that we move beyond the present impasse in the annals of evangelical controversy by returning to the Dutch theologian and statesman who inspired Cornelius Van Til to envision an evangelical order of pure and absolute presuppositionalist certainty. The testimony that Molly Worthen has painstakingly assembled in her tale of evangelical intellectual declension makes it bracingly clear just how calamitous such an experiment could prove to be.
