Beyond ‘Faithful Presence’: Abraham Kuyper’s Legacy for Common Grace and Cultural Development

Articles

Abstract

While James Davidson Hunter’s concept of faithful presence is a good starting point for Reformed Christian cultural engagement, his fear of Christian triumphalism from the Right and Left leaves his vision disappointingly subdued. Building upon Abraham Kuyper’s concept of the Reformed doctrine of common grace, this article seeks to go beyond Hunter’s faithful presence by recommending a transformationalism without triumphalism. While “faithful presence” may be the right starting point, Christian cultural development can and must go beyond it, given the crises in our world today.
