Celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation with a variety of short talks and panels that reflect on the relevance of the Kuyperian tradition for today.
Dr. Craig Bartholomew’s new book, Contours of the Kuyperian Tradition: A Systematic Introduction, will be used a lens for the afternoon’s events.
A mix of external speakers and Redeemer faculty will present short seven minute talks in relation to each chapter of Bartholomew’s book. Following the talks, a panel discussion on renewing the Kuyperian tradition for today will be held.
This conference is sponsored in part by The Reid Trust.
