The Protestant Church in the Netherlands: Church Unity in the 21st Century

Stories and Reflections

Edited by: Leo J. Koffeman, Arjan Plaisier

The Protestant Church in the Netherlands (Dutch: Protestantse Kerk in Nederland, abbreviated PKN) is the largest Protestant Christian denomination in the Netherlands. This volume marks the 10th anniversary of the denomination, which occurred on May 1, 2014. The book outlines the long history that preceded the unification and the developments that occurred during the first decade of the church's existence. Furthermore, contributors from other countries share the stories of their united churches. Their contributions enrich the picture of what church unification may entail. Thus, the book contributes to the field of ecumenical theology. Additionally, theologians from different backgrounds share some reflections on the issues raised by the book's articles.
