Every revolution has the same doctrines. Every modern revolution – from the Cuban to the sexual revolution – stems from the doctrines of the French Revolution in 1789. It was in opposition to these doctrines that modern Conservatism was born. As a disciple of Edmund Burke, a mentor to Abraham Kuyper, and endorsed by Herman Bavinck, Groen van Prinsterer takes aim at the doctrines of the Revolution: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
This newly translated-into-English work is a popular and accessible version of Groen’s magnum opus, Unbelief and Revolution. Students of neo-Calvinism, Reformed Conservatism, or Dutch history in general will alike enjoy the easy prose, rhetorical elegance, and fiery punch delivered by one of Holland’s greatest Parliamentarians.
