The works which are listed here are not intended to be a
bibliography for the book. Although I have consulted these works
from time to time, the preparation of the book led me to consult
many more sources than one can list here. Many of these sources,
for obvious reasons, were in the Dutch language to which our
readers have no access. The reason for including these books is
the suggestion of the publisher that a list of books be provided
for the reader who wishes to read more extensively on any given
subject. The list, therefore, is intended for the general reader
whose interest may have been whetted by various chapters in the
book. It is my hope and prayer that this may indeed be true. To
read in Church History is edifying and one who turns to the
fountain of the past will surely find refreshing and renewing
waters from which to drink. Although I have not included
additional reading suggestions for all those whose lives are
described in this book, a general work on church history will
give the reader additional biographies and works to consult if
such is desired.
