15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Jacob Aitken on March 11, 2004
Format: Paperback
McGoldrick has given the church a valuable introduction for what one may hope to be a Kuyper revival. *God's Renaissance Man* may be a fitting title for the life and work of a politician, preacher, theologian, and journalist--areas where Kuyper could have easily set the standard. The book begins by giving his early life, his internal struggles with liberalism at college, his conversion to the Reformed Faith in his first pastorate, and the public battles in which he was the center for the rest of his life.
The Parts that I found most interesting were the ones on his life at college (including his temporary loss of rational control, only to be regained by reading classic literature), his wars with liberalism, and his founding of a new denomination. McGoldrick either loses me, or attempts to cover too much too fast at the end of the book. Nevertheless, that did not mar the book at all, it just pointed the need for more work on Kuyper. Other interesting parts of the book show Kuyper's foundational thoughts concerning the presuppositionalist mode of apologetics. An example, there are no neutral men, for faith is the foundation of all thought, especially scientific thought; Faith precedes the examination of evidence. Granted, there are more and possibly better examples of his apologetic. McGoldrick also doesn't hide the reader from Kuyper's faults, and those of his immediate followers. Many have taken his cultural mandate to the extreme that evangelism is neglected, although this was not true of Kuyper. His supralapsarianism, if I am correct, will cause some in the Reformed camp to stop and question (even I am not so sure).

This book provides an excellent summary of the life of one of the most important Christian theologians and statesmen of the last millennium. The ideas and principles he re-discovered and articulated continue to resonate in many fields throughout the west. The author provides a good summary of his life and convictions.

Format: Paperback
There is a very small number of biographies written about Abraham Kuyper. Yet this one has a much information about who Kuyper was and what he believed in. Abraham Kuyper was an interesting man. He was a writer, a theologian, an educator, a politican, and Prime Minister of the Netherlands.
