Acton University 2024 Mobile Banner

Abraham Kuyper was a staunch critic of the secularist liberalism he identified as the legacy of the French Revolution, but in its place he advocated what might be described as Christian liberalism. Matthew Tuininga explores Kuyper's vision for Christian political engagement in a fracturing world, focusing on his writings on charity and justice.
