A wide-ranging interview with questions posed by a Chinese theologian interested in Protestant legal and political thought, particularly as inspired by nineteenth-century Dutch leader Abraham Kuyper. This interview, published in both English and Chinese, speaks directly to the value and utility of these Western and Christian teachings on covenant community, human rights, religious freedom, constitutional reform, and political resistance for modern day China.

Keywords: Law, religion, law and religion, Protestantism, Abraham Kuyper, human rights, China, religious freedom, constitutionalism
