The Reformed Church in Dutch Brazil (1630-1954)

The second book of this combo offer describes the history of a 17th century Reformed Christian Church in NW Brazil. The author analyzes her relations with Jews, Roman Catholics, and Africans, and describes extensively the mission work among the Indians. He devotes much attention to the question of religious liberty, especially in relation to Roman Catholics. It is a valuable contribution to the knowledge of Dutch overseas church and mission history. The original Portuguese version became a bestseller.

The first book, published to commemorate the 50 years of mission work in Brazil, share the impressions of previous missionaries, mission aid workers, volunteers and supporters. The book also offers an impression on the mission work by a Brazilian Canadian. As a coffee table book, God Gave the Growth could generate interesting discussion about the work in Brazil and would, of course, make an excellent gift as well.
