The Essential Theological Warnings


Recovering a forgotten theologian.

Klaas Schilder (1890–1952) was a prominent Dutch Reformed theologian in the early twentieth century, first as a pastor and then as a professor. While his fame spread to North America in the 1940s, he is mostly forgotten today. In Schilder Reader: The Essential Theological Writings, readers will rediscover this important Dutch theologian.


Working in the tradition of Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck, Schilder applies Dutch Neo--Calvinism to the twentieth century. This includes secularism, the rise and influence of Karl Barth, opposition to Nazism, and the relation between the church and society. Schilder Reader contextualizes his work and furthers the neo--Calvinist tradition.

  • Truly wonderful to see this collection of Klaas Schilder’s essays, so representative both of his thinking on many significant areas and of his erudite and brilliant mind. Very thankful that in this way his contribution to twentieth-century continental theology is at least to some extent available to the English-speaking world.

    ―Gerhard H. Visscher, professor emeritus, Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary, Hamilton, Canada
