The Dutch Reformed Church (Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk) in South Africa has an outstanding record of missionary involvement in Southern Africa and beyond. At the same time, it is the church that gained notoriety in the ecumenical world because of its close relations with the Apartheid government. The author says it in so many words: "The history I review here, is by and large a proud history, not a perfect history" (: x). It is because he was also part of this history that he felt it necessary to write this critical book.
