Video: Book Discussion on Kuyper and Islam

We’ve got video available of last week’s book launch discussion about Abraham Kuyper’s travels around the Mediterranean Sea. A portion of his travel record has been published as On Islam as part of the Abraham Kuyper Collected Works in Public Theology.

James Bratt and Doug Howard, both of Calvin College and who edited the volume, were joined by the translator Jan van Vliet of Dordt College for a discussion which I moderated.

Here’s the panel discussion:

And the audience Q&A:

Links for the English-language captioned version of the documentary series about Kuyper’s travels, which I mentioned during the Q&A, are available here.
