This article presents Abraham Kuyper’s principles of sphere sovereignty, structural pluralism, and confessional pluralism as eective means for resisting the pressure to compromise—always a danger for public theology. Public theology, as distinct from political theology, concerns civil society. In this sense, Kuyper’s structural pluralism is an important element for the connection between public theology, civil society, and the public sphere. Kuyper’s political thought is therefore viewed from the perspective of public theology.
