|"Calvinism in particular and Christianity in general is not just a set of beliefs about eternity and how to get to eternity and how to be pious."|
Professor Nicholas Wolterstorff discusses two concepts prevalent in the theology of Abraham Kuyper. Wolterstorff is author of the essay "Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920)" published in the anthology The Teachings of Modern Christianity on Law, Politics, and Human Nature, Vol. 1. Kuyper is well-known for his work on worldview and sphere sovereignty. Wolterstorff describes how Kuyper's first parish influenced his thinking on worldview. Close observation of the French Revolution, he explains, is partly responsible for the development of Kuyper's thought on sphere sovereignty. Wolterstorff attends to what both terms mean.
