An Eerdmans Century
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Sep 14, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 214 pages
From ten-cent specials for Dutch farmers in the early 1900s to a wide assortment of well over 1,000 titles today, William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has built a solid reputation for producing "the finest in religious literature." Throughout the past century Eerdmans has published an ecumenical blend of thoughtful books by such authors as C. S. Lewis, Karl Barth, John Howard Yoder, Joan Chittister, N. T. Wright, Rowan Williams, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Martin Marty, Eugene Peterson, Pope Benedict XVI and the list goes on.
Occasioned by the Eerdmans centennial celebration, this book by Larry ten Harmsel engagingly tells the company s story. Drawing from first-person interviews, historical documents, and newly unearthed information, ten Harmsel relates how Wm. B. Eerdmans Sr. started and built the American publishing company that bears his name and how Wm. B. Eerdmans Jr. has carried on the family tradition of independent, eclectic religious publishing into the company s 100th year.
