CPJ's Annual Kuyper Lecture 


About CPJ's Kuyper Lecture

The Center for Public Justice's Annual Kuyper Lecture seeks to focus our attention on significant questions of religion in public life and Jesus' Lordship over all creation. It inspires and equips us to pursue our common calling to faithful citizenship and to affirm the vital role of government in upholding public justice. The lecture reminds us that God's rule is both cosmic in scope and eternal in length.

Dr. Charles Glenn

Dr. Charles Glenn will trace parallels between the current political confusion and the period when Kuyper articulated sphere sovereignty as the basis for religious freedom, and suggest that this principle offers a framework for structuring school choice and reform efforts today, applying this to the role of Islamic schools in the US as an antidote to cultural alienation and jihadist violence.
