Stories About the History of the Church V10 - Immigrants and Church FoundersISBN: 9781936215102
From the back cover:
Many of those who took part in the secession from the Dutch Reformed church in 1834 experienced persecution, and for that reason they chose to emigrate to America where they experienced many struggles. Volume 10 in this series tells about their experiences. These stories include the forming of the Doleantie and the battle for Christian schools.
Later in the book we read about the union between Ledeborian and Churches under the Cross under the leading of G. H. Kersten
These stories, beautifully illustrated by Rino Visser, imaginatively recreate this period in the more recent history of the Reformed churches in America.
