Posts from the Convivium


I'll be heading south later today to attend the 2014 Convivium Calvinisticum. Of particular interest will be the presentations by James Bratt drawn from his 2013 biography Abraham Kuyper: Modern Calvinist, Christian Democrat.

I've worked my way through the first four chapters and they are very helpful. Bratt strips the hagiography that so often surrounds Kuyper in Reformed and even Evangelical circles while providing the personal, familial, educational, cultural, and historical background by which to better understand the full oeuvre of Kuyper's extraordinary achievements.

Other presentations also look quite good so I'll try to post some comments on them as time permits.
