Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses Kuyper's understanding of the relationship between creation and salvation. His views on creation and salvation cannot be understood without reference to his position on God's providence and specifically his much discussed notion of common grace. The chapter explores a few questions, including: How did Kuyper tell the story of God's work? How does he connect the seven chapters of the story identified? A few preliminary observations: Firstly, it is striking that Kuyper does address all seven the chapters of the story in his writings. Secondly, he tells a story, that is, that he maintains the narrative backbone of the biblical texts. Thirdly, Kuyper's interest in understanding the place of the earth in this narrative of God's work. Fourthly, the key that Kuyper employs in bringing the seven chapters of the story in relation to each other is primarily a pneumatological one.
