Gary Haugen Gets His Kuyper On

By ROBERT JOUSTRA

Just now, there is a small subterranean war in American evangelicalism about who Abraham Kuyper actually was. Jamie Smith, reporting from the front lines of James Bratt’s magisterial new biography of Kuyper, cautions us to receive “Kuypers” with suspicion until we’ve read about the man’s life and legacy. But while the bun fights of theologians and theorists go on, Gary Haugen and Victor Boutros have claimed and revitalized a very real Kuyper, in my opinion, with a practical, pressing theology of public justice. The Locust Effect yields the best of his legacy.
