Ever in Thy Sight: 31 Devotions on the PsalmsISBN: 9781683593584
Well-known as a public figure and theologian, Abraham Kuyper was also, like David, a man after God's own heart. His profound thought was energized by a vibrant faith. It is fitting that the Psalms--the anatomy of the human soul--inspired abundant meditation for Kuyper as he endeavored to apply Christ's Lordship to all of life.
Translated and introduced by James De Jong, these thirty-one meditations on the Psalms reveal the devotion of a seasoned saint who remained faithful to his Lord.

Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920), a Prime Minister of the Netherlands and founder of the Free University of Amsterdam, applied a revived confessional Calvinism to all areas of modern Dutch life. The faith that inspired him and his followers in this effort is captured in his published weekly meditations.
"Here are the devotional thoughts of one of the most significant Protestant thinkers of the last 150 years and from the most formative period of his influential life. This treasure is both timeless and timely."
--R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"[Kuyper] is my favorite devotional writer."
--Richard J. Mouw, President emeritus, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Deeply rooted in Scripture, refracted through experiences both rare and commonplace, enlivened by Kuyper's lively imagination, these meditations lead us along the confrontation between a most holy God and our various spiritual aspirations-from hope to doubt, trial to repentance, pride to joy."
--James D. Bratt, Professor of History emeritus, Calvin College
