The Stone Lectures were an annual lecture series at Princeton Theological Seminary. Internationally-renowned speakers were invited to participate. Among, if not, the most notable was Abraham Kuyper. These are the Kuyper lectures of 1898 on the subject of Calvinism. They form the outline of his Calvinist theology and its impact on every aspect of society. His first lecture is “Calvinism— A Life System,” and the remaining five lectures relate Calvinism to religion, politics, science, art, and the future. Kuyper is an important figure in Calvinism and a leader in theology development. His passion for education resulted in the founding of Amsterdam Free University and numerous other colleges.

Dr. Abraham Kuyper (18371920) was a Dutch Calvinist theologian, philosopher, and politician. As leader of the Anti-Revolutionary Party in the Netherlands, he served as Prime Minister of his country from 19011905. He occupied himself with the task of reconstructing the social structures of his native land on the basis of its Calvinistic heritage in almost every area of life. He developed Neo-Calvinism, which emphasizes the sovereignty of Jesus over all mental pursuits and supports the idea that there is a grace given by God to all things in order to sustain the continued unfolding of creation. Kuyper wrote a number of books, including Conservatism and Orthodoxy (1870), The Social Question and the Christian Religion (1891), and Common Grace (1902).
