Reviews - What do customers think about Our Family Album: The Unfinished Story of the Christian Reformed Church?
Well written popularized history of Christian Reformed C Mar 5, 1999
James Schaap does the Christian Reformed Church - and any who would like to know her better - a wonderful service in this readable popularized history. From the opening you know Schaap loves the church, both his own denomination and the world-wide church. This is history from the inside, full of candor (sometimes uncomfortably so) and full of affection.
An honest, balanced history of the Christian Reformed Church Dec 24, 1998
Schaap goes out of his way to provide a human, humane, and balanced portrait of the Christian Reformed Church, from its Dutch roots, through periods of schism and immigration, and on to the controversies of the 1990s. It's a warm, friendly portrait that doesn't gloss over divisive tendencies and perceived clannishness of this denomination founded by Dutch immigrants. As a student of Reformed church history, I find this volume incredibly accessibly, broad in scope, and a great help in understanding my people.
