the Least is the memoirs of Rev. Cornelius Hanko's long, fruitful
life of nearly a century (1907-2005). He lived through two world wars,
the Great Depression, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the rise and fall of
communism and the advent of the space age, and spanned the terms of 18
US presidents, from Theodore Roosevelt to George W. Bush.
Son of Dutch
immigrants to America, Rev. Hanko served six pastorates in five states,
most notably in First Protestant Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan
(1948-1964), along with Rev. Herman Hoeksema and Rev. Hubert De Wolf.
Rev. Hanko poignantly describes the grief caused in the PRC by De Wolf's
heresy and schism (1953).
this, Less Than the Least follows Rev. Hanko from his childhood,
school days and seminary training, all the way to his retirement (1977)
and beyond. As well as covering the formation of the Protestant Reformed
Churches in the 1920s, it includes his travels to continental Europe,
the Middle East, Australia (and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of
Australia) and Northern Ireland (and the Covenant Protestant Reformed
