The Enduring Legacy of Albertus C. Van Raalte as Leader and Liaison

The celebration of the bicentennial of the birth of Albertus C. Van Raalte in
October 2011 provided a distinct opportunity to evaluate the enduring legacy of
one of the best-known Dutch immigrants of the nineteenth century. This book of
essays demonstrates his unique role not only in the narrative of the migration
to America but also in the foundation of theological education for Seceders
(Afgescheidenen) prior to his emigration. These essays were all presented at an
international conference held in Holland, Michigan, and Ommen, Overijssel, the
Netherlands, with the conference theme of Albertus C. Van Raalte: Leader and " Liaison. Three broad categories serve as the organizing principle for this " book: biographical essays, thematic essays, and reception studies.
Van Raalte began to emerge as a leader within the Seceder Church (Christelijk
Afgescheidene Gereformeerde Kerk) in the Netherlands, but his leadership
abilities were both tested and strengthened through leading a group of Dutch
citizens to the United States in 1846. In his role as leader, moreover, he
served as liaison to the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church in America in the
eastern United States (renamed the Reformed Church in America in 1867, to the
Seceder Church in the Netherlands, and to the civil authorities in the United
States, as well as between business and their employees.
These fifteen essays illuminate the many facets of this energetic,
multi-talented founder of the Holland kolonie. This collection further enhances
and strengthens our knowledge of both Van Raalte and his Separatist
Series: The Historical Series of the Reformed Church in America.
Editors: Jacob E. Nyenhuis and George Harinck.
