"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 multivolume sourcebook will be indispensable to anyone interested in Reformed church history." --Robert P Swierenga, Research Professor, A. C. Van Raalte Institute, Hope College
