"Son of Secession is a challenge to our understanding of the historical origins of the Christian Reformed Church as well as the church today. Janet Sjaarda Sheeres has written a biography of Douwe Vander Werp, one of the key figures in the Netherlands Afscheiding of 1834 and a principal minister in the early development of the Christian Reformed Church. Credited with having founded ten congregations, Vander Werp was a man zealously committed to his understanding of God's Word and its implications for his life, even when it required the painful sacrifice of three secessions."--BOOK JACKET.
