Description

A "Preparatory Sermon" preached by Albertus C. Van Raalte on the text of Colossians 3.1, "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God." In the usual Van Raalte style, the sermon is well crafted but there again are no illustrations.

About the collection:

Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."
