Ep #326: The Synod of Dordt Project: Publishing the Documents of Dordt

October 31, 2018

In this final episode with Dr. Don Sinnema on the Synod of Dordt, we will be discussing the Synod of Dordt Project. Some of the things we will explore are:

What is the project about? Why are we publishing them now? What need is there for these documents to be published? What documents have/have not been published already? How relevant are these documents going to be in our study of Dordt? And many others! This project is truly a historical gold mine! 

We have been blessed to have Dr. Sinnema with us throughout this series. Please share this series with others and encourage them to study the Dutch Reformation and the Synod of Dordt.  If you haven't heard the previous episodes, here is the listing:
