    Better titled, "How Free, How Holy?" One could see this book as the best and last gasp of any serious neo-Calvinist movement in America. It covers the neo-Calvinist ethos in a nutshell. These guys want the kingship of Christ but aren't too clear on how to get there.Bolt recognizes this as he surveys the religio-political options available to Americans. He doesn't like theonomy but he also realises he doesn't have a really good critique of them. He wants socialism but he is also aware of the Reco [...]

    This is a tremendously helpful resource for anyone who wants to study Kuyper in great depth. The book not only provides valuable insight into Kuyper's viewpoints and teachings, but provides excellent discussions of the views of his predecessors and contemporaries, and a wonderful study of American Public Theology as a whole. There are lots of good viewpoints to interact with here and much that will challenge and broaden the mind, especially in regards to society and politics. Recommended.
