Christianizing the World is a critique of Abraham Kuyper’s cultural theory of a common grace of God and of the grandiose mission of this grace, and of those who confess the theory and evidently intend to promote it so that it accomplishes the end Kuyper claimed. The book exposes Kuyper’s biblical basis for his theory and its practical mission.

The first and main part of the book is a much-expanded version of the public lecture given in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2014 under the auspices of the evangelism society of Southwest Protestant Reformed Church in Wyoming, Michigan. The second part of the book consists of questions raised by the audience at the conclusion of the lecture and of the answers by the speaker at the lecture. 


David J. Engelsma is a pastor and professor emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. He is also the author of Marriage: The Mystery of Christ and the ChurchGospel Truth of Justification: Proclaimed, Defended, Developed, and The Church's Hope: The Reformed Doctrine of the End, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.
