"This much-anticipated, annotated edition in English of the Dutch-language minutes of the Classis of Holland (Michigan)-- the seminal regional assembly of Dutch Reformed immigrants in the Midwest--is extraordinary for its scope and detail. Every substantive theological and ecclesiastical issue, whether Netherlandic or American in origin, is rooted in the foundational Synod of Dort (1618-19) and the Later (Nadere) Reformation. In addition, Kennedy provides biographical sketches of virtually every ministerial and elder delegate, likely hundreds of churchmen. Only a scholar grounded in Reformed theological and ecclesiastical history, fluent in languages, and skilled in genealogical search engines could have written such an extensive work. This multi-volume sourcebook will be indispensable to anyone interested in Reformed church history." --Robert P Swierenga, Research Professor, A. C. Van Raalte Institute, Hope College
