Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship, spoke at Calvin Theological Seminary’s Spring Banquet, endorsing the school’s Dutch neo-Calvinist heritage. “Calvin Theological Seminary is an underappreciated asset in the evangelical world. There’s nothing the evangelical world needs more than a bracing dose of Kuyperian theology,” he said.
The speech also marked the announcement of the establishment of the Charles W. Colson Presidential Chair at the seminary. Thanks to a major gift from the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, the chair will fund the costs of the president’s position and office till 2015.
The Calvin Seminary press page has many resources, including an audio broadcast of Colson’s speech, pictures, and related articles.
Colson’s keynote address at the 1998 Abraham Kuyper/Leo XIII conference at Calvin College is available, along with the other papers presented at the conference, in the Spring 2002 issue of the Journal of Markets & Morality, “How Now Shall We Live?”
