Does theological inquiry belong to the church or the university? Is God properly understood within the Church, or within secular contexts? As an unapologetic Calvinist, Kuyper offers a sweeping overview of the history, the task, the method, and the organization of theology. He places theology alongside the sciences, and calls for more interaction between theology and the other disciplines. Principles of Sacred Theology helped fuel the rise of Neo-calvinism in the twentieth century and continues to undergird Reformed theology in the twenty-first.
Principles of Sacred Theology also includes an introduction by B. B. Warfield.
