This beloved devotional classic, which has blessed Christians for over one hundred years, contains 110 meditations on just one verse from Psalm 73: "But as for me, it is good to be near unto God." This intimate and contemplative devotional emphasizes that the reality of being near unto God must be the foundation upon which all else lies, the driving force of our very existence. These meditations, written during Kuyper's years as Prime Minister of the Netherlands (1901-1905), embody Kuyper's dedication to the unity of doctrinal loyalty and the spiritual vigor in his writing. As such, these meditations are trusted reflections of Kuyper's continual reflections and readings of Psalm 73:28, and are a true source of wisdom and spiritual encouragement.
Abraham Kuijper (Maassluis, 29 October 1837– Den Haag, 8 November 1920) generally known as Abraham Kuyper, was a Dutch politician, journalist, statesman and theologian. He founded the Anti-Revolutionary Party and was prime minister of the Netherlands between 1901 and 1905.
