Chapter Summary

Ernst Conradie's reflections on Abraham Kuyper's legacy for contemporary ecotheology address a wide range of theological topics and display great insight into the facets of Kuyper's thought. This chapter addresses questions of general and special revelation, common and particular grace, natural theology and theology of nature against the backdrop of the relationship between creation and redemption, Conradie's essays emerge as a wide ranging discourse that travels through many regions of the theological landscape. It commences with general reaction to Conradie's argument followed by an attempt to develop Kuyper's legacy by brief reflections on his journalistic and rhetorical mode of discourse as well as the doctrines of creation, pneumatology and ecclesiology. The goal is to look at Kuyper as a certain model of improvisational reflection who stimulates a creative engagement in the world, including ecotheology.
