Stories of the Reformed Church in America
by Bruggink, Donald J., Baker, Kim N.
The exciting and hope-filled story of the Reformed Church in America (RCA), tracing its origin to Europe, with a brief history of the church out of which the Reformation grew. The scene then shifts to New Amsterdam in 1628, a miniscule planting which survived the English conquest and eventually grew into a far-flung denomination. The book follows its story into the twenty-first century. Along the way it sheds light on the controversies, its strengths and weaknesses, the development of its schools, and its incredible missionary endeavours at home and abroad. In addition to the sequential story of the RCA's development, there are vignettes of people involved in events small and great ó from the diary of a frail young woman who survived near calamity at sea but who lived to age eighty-one, the widow of the president of Queen's College, to the Iowa farmerís son who built the famed Crystal Cathedral from where he reaches millions around the globe on TV.
