There’s an interesting post @ Desiring God – America’s Debt to John Calvin. Piper writes some interesting thoughts here regarding Calvin’s influence on American culture and democracy as a whole, based on lectures by Abraham Kuyper (Lectures on Calvinism). Kuyper was a Dutch politician, journalist, statesman and superb theologian who went on to found the Anti-Revolutionary Party and was prime minister of the Netherlands between 1901 and 1905. Kuyper also started the Free University of Amsterdam. Kuyper is a heavyweight within the Reformed tradition.
So what questions do Piper ask that Kuyper answered back in the 19th century?
