Three for the Cross


Rebecca Martin – This is a story of the Mennonites or “Doopsgezinde” in the Netherlands in the 1560’s. Jacob and Anneken Dirks are Calvinists, but to Anneken’s great distress, Jacob was drawn to the Mennonites and eventually joined them. Jacob had to leave the family and flee for his life for the “sake of the Cross”. The Dirks’ oldest son, Andries, joins the “Beggars,” who are fighting for Dutch independence from the Spanish. When he came home, he had lost his faith in the “Beggars”. Jacob leaves for Antwerp, hoping to eventually bring the family there too. What lies around the bend for these soldiers of the cross?
