Product Description

The Eerdmans Century 1911-2011 tells the engaging saga of the first one hundred years of one of America's oldest independent religious publisher.

From ten-cent specials for Dutch farmers to over 1,000 titles currently in print, William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has since 1911 built a solid reputation for producing "the finest in religious literature": an ecumenical blend of thoughtful books by authors including C. S. Lewis, Karl Barth, John Howard Yoder, Philip Yancey, Joan Chittister, N. T. Wright, Rowan Williams, Martin Marty, Eugene Peterson, and Pope Benedict XVI.

Now, on the occasion of the Eerdmans centennial celebration, Larry ten Harmsel tells the company's story. Through first-person interviews, historical documents, and newly uncovered information, ten Harmsel relates how Wm. B. Eerdmans Sr. started and built the American publishing company that bears his name--and how Wm. B. Eerdmans Jr. has carried on the family tradition of independent and eclectic religious publishing into the company's 100th year.

Endorsements & Reviews

If one were to name the writers who have honored the Eerdmans imprint, and who have been honored by the Eerdmans imprint, it would pretty much constitute the canon of serious religious thought over the past half century and more.
-Richard John Neuhaus

"I have heartfelt appreciation for Bill Eerdmans╞s long, devoted, and distinguished service to the publishing of theology. His personal interest in the writers he encourages, his keen eye for issues needing to be addressed, and his shrewd judgment of quality have been a huge gift, for which the entire Christian world should be grateful.
-Rowan Williams

Eerdmans began as a publishing house located solidly in the parochial community of recent Dutch immigrants in North America. Now I keep hearing from friends in many different quarters that they regard it as the most ecumenical of all publishers of religious books in the Christian tradition. My friends are right; Catholics, Orthodox, Lutherans, Reformed, Evangelicals--all find their home at Eerdmans.
-Nicholas Wolterstorff

In a culture plagued with cheap spirituality of every kind, Eerdmans has continued to publish at the very highest level. Once, after delivering a speech pleading for a more discerning selection of Christian books, I was asked by a perplexed church-bookstore owner what she should put on her shelves. I said, ¬ĎAnything from Eerdmans.¬í
-Fleming Rutledge
