Herman Bavinck Lecture - Prof Hans Boersma

29 May, 2017

On Monday 29 May 2017, 19:30, in the aula of the Theologische Universiteit Kampen, Prof Hans Boersma will deliver the Herman Bavinck Lecture on 

Blessing and Glory: Abraham Kuyper on the Beatific Vision

You are warmly invited to join us. Entrance is free of charge.

In the Herman Bavinck Lecture series scholars are invited who share Bavinck’s love for the Reformed tradition, are aware of the appeal of his vision of grace as a transforming force in both personal life and in society and culture, and in their scholarly endeavour reflect his deep and Catholic vision of the Christian faith. They are asked to address in their lecture key questions regarding the contribution which Reformed theology can make to church and society in a postmodern world.
