One of the most significant figures of the first part of the twentieth century, Abraham Kuyper was an esteemed pastor, theologian, journalist, and statesman. He also wrote one of the most enduring devotional works of all time, To Be Near unto God
, a work that has continued to capture the hearts and souls of successive generations.Near unto God
is a contemporary abridgment of Kuyper's devotional classic. James Calvin Schaap, who has been writing devotional materials for more than a decade, has here condensed Kuyper's meditations and freshened the style, making the deep spirituality of Kuyper's work accessible to contemporary Christians. Short, pithy, and imbued with inspiring reflections on the Word of God, the 110 meditations included in this work will speak anew to readers today.
