The subject of Christ and culture has occupied the church since its inception. Some emphasize the reality of redemption and the imperative of cultural transformation; other criticize this approach because of the transcendent nature of this current life and the specific function of "kingdom" activity.
This project focuses on the two competing positions rooted in the Reformed tradition: neo-Calvinism, a nineteenth century school of thought associated with the Calvinist polymath Abraham Kuyper, and the two-kingdoms perspective.
Neo-Calvinist scholars address issues on which they differ with Two Kingdoms supporters, such as the nature and extent of Christ's kingdom, the idea of Christian culture, cosmic redemption, the cultural mandate, natural law, and common grace.
