Chapter Summary

Reading Kuyper today is an ambivalent exercise—enthusiasm being the neighbour of the fear of abuse. Boundaries justifiable in one context may soon enough become a hindrance to the human spirit in another, but, there is still a need to discuss the notion of boundaries, and one can certainly draw inspiration from Kuyper here. This chapter mentions three areas where boundaries are relevant: the area of marriage, clear boundaries and boundaries also have to be discussed when it comes to human dominion over the rest of creation. The chapter also looks at reception of Karl Barth in Sweden. Secondly, there is reason to look at how the two-kingdoms doctrine as understood by Wingren compares with Kuyper's common grace. Thirdly, to look at Kuyper's so-called life system, since it could be argued that his lasting and most tangible legacy. It also pays attention to how Potgieter utilises Kuyper for his own ends.

Keywords:Abraham Kuyper; common grace; fear of abuse; Karl Barth; notion of boundaries; Swedish-Lutheran Perspectives; Wingren
