Schilder as a Twenty-First Century Export Product

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter asks why the twentieth century Dutch Reformed theologian Klaas Schilder (1890-1952) has remained relatively unknown outside the Dutch-speaking world, despite his considerable significance within the Netherlands. It offers various reasons for this in relation to Schilder's historical context, and suggests that he remains of use to non-Dutch theologians by virtue of his theological opposition to National Socialism, his constructive engagement with Karl Barth, and his critical perspective on the neo-Calvinism of Kuyper and Bavinck.
