A new book about Kuyper

Brazilian publisher, Editora Monergismo, has just published this new book, Abraham Kuyper e as Bases Para uma Teologia Pública, by Thiago Moreira. The title in English is Abraham Kuyper and the Bases for a Public Theology. Perhaps it will be translated into English at some point. In the meantime, here is my translation of the table of contents:

David, I hope you won't be offended by my question: Did you use Google Translate as the basis for this translation of the TOC? I'm interested as I'm in the process of translating an article from Dutch to English using Google Translate. After I've done so I will send the translation to the author to seek his response and whether he'd be willing to make it available on his website. I'll also ask him whether he'd be included on the AoLR list of reformational scholars.

Best wishes for your new endeavour.
