A journalist, a theologian, a pastor, a prime minister, few people can boast of having such dimensions to their careers! Yet such was the remarkable life of Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920), who played a major role in helping modern Christians to develop a consistently biblical and practical world-view, not only in his native country of the Netherlands, but throughout much of the world. All of life belongs to God. In Kuyper’s own words, “No single piece of our mental world is to be hermetically sealed off from the rest, and 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!'”
