Kuyper’s Covenantal Theology
To know how Kuyper would apply his thinking to all areas of life (politics, economy, etc.) one must be familiar with his theology. In particular, one must know that Kuyper had a very distinct Trinitarian theology. According to Ralph Smith, Kuyper’s “trinitarian covenant is the true prototype of every covenant.” Therefore, to understand Kuyper demands a prior knowledge of Trinitarian covenantal theology.
