As he had done in his bibliography (see 1923.07), Rullmann included in this biography a number of full-length extracts from Kuyper’s oeuvre. Pages 71–74 reproduce Kuyper’s letter of condolence to Mrs. Dibbetz-Van Laar (see 1910.01), while pages 81–91 contain the full text of the report of the opening address at the Southern Mission Festival (cf. 1875.07), of which no printed versions appear to exist any longer. Page 116 reprints the six-line poem from De Heraut, no. 150, October 31, 1880 (cf. 1882.04), and pages 141–142 reprint Kuyper’s concluding remarks as chairman of the first Christian Social Congress (cf. 1892.10). Also reprinted are two of Kuyper’s meditations: a meditation on Psalm 42:7 (on pp. 98–101), which reflects his period of serious illness in 1876/1877, reprinted from De Heraut, no. 606, August 4, 1889 (for an English translation, see 1998.03, pp. 148–153); and a second devotion titled “Nochtans” [Nevertheless] (on pp. 205–209), written on the basis of Habakkuk 3:17–18 and published shortly after the electoral defeat of June 1905, reprinted from De Heraut, no. 1437, July 16, 1905. Pages 144–145 reproduce a letter from Kuyper to his wife, Mrs. J.H. Kuyper-Schaay, dated Pau (Basses Pyrenées), October 31, 1894. Facing page 136, a facsimile is printed of a few lines (dated January 9, 1891) from the anniversary album of his eldest daughter, H.S.S. Kuyper (1870–1933).

The biography was published in July 1928, with a print run of 3,250 copies.
