Abraham Kuyper was a profound theologian, an encyclopedic thinker, and a deeply spiritual man who believed that it is the believer's task 'to know God in all his works.' In a day when secular science is seeking to establish hegemony over all knowing, and when postmodern art is threatening to bring an end to art, Kuyper's solid, Biblical insights can help to restore perspective and sanity to these two critical areas of human life. --Chuck Colson, Founder of Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview
The appearance of this treatise in English translation is for me the beginning of a large dream come true. Kuyper's writings on common grace are much needed 'for such a time as this', and Wisdom & Wonder is a marvelous foretaste of more that is to come! --Richard J. Mouw, President and Professor of Christian Philosophy of Fuller Theological Seminary
