From Mission to Church : the Reformed Church in America mission to India by Eugene P. Heideman
Publication Date: 2001-01-01
In the nineteenth century the Scudders went to India with the avowed intention to confine their efforts to evangelistic preaching. By the time the Reformed Church mission became a part of the Church of South India, it was one of the most heavily institutionalized churches in the nation, supporting agricultural and industrial efforts, one of India's leading hospitals, and numerous educational institutions.
A New Way of Belonging : covenant theology, China, and the Christian Reformed Church, 1921-1951 by Kurt D. Selles

This book is a touching tribute to the tenacious fidelity of almost forty Christian Reformed Church missionaries who labored for three decades in Eastern china. Well-written and easily readable, the book narrates the many trials and tribulations, as well as the very occasional successful achievements and joys, of a small band of CRC missioners, who sought to implant their Christian faith in China, albeit in the context of one of the most tumultuous periods of Chinese history.
Pioneers to Partners: the Reformed Church in America and Christian mission with the Japanese by Gordon D. Laman
Publication Date: 2013-02-02
Beginning with Japan's early exposure to Christianity by the very successful Roman Catholic mission to Japan in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and the resultant persecution and prohibition of Christianity, Laman lays the groundwork for understanding the experience of nineteenth-century Protestant missionaries, among whom those of the Reformed Church in America were in the forefront. The first Protestant church was organized with a vision for ecumenical mission, and during several promising years, churches and mission schools were organized.
To the Ends of the Earth : Calvin's missional vision and legacy by Michael A. G. Haykin; C. Jeffrey Robinson Sr.
Publication Date: 2014-05-31
From training pastors at his Genevan Academy to sending missionaries to the jungles of Brazil, Calvin consistently sought to encourage and equip Christians to take the good news of salvation to the very ends of the earth. Haykin and Robinson clear away longstanding stereotypes related to the Reformed tradition and Calvin's theological heirs, highlighting the Reformer's neglected missional vision and legacy.
