The project started in 2000 as a relatively modest effort to publish an annotated translation of the early Dutch-language minutes of the Classis of Holland. It has resulted in a 2,150-page, three-volume collection with full commentary that not only shares what was chronicled — often by the hand of Holland’s founder, the Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte — but includes historical context and background on the issues and people involved.
Dr. Jacob (Jack) E. Nyenhuis, whose career in teaching and administration at Hope College has spanned more than four decades, has been honored with a book celebrating his career, character and impact.
