Another option: Kohlbrugge - Hoedemaker - Barth.

The focus of this aricle is on the nature of the theological ethos of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk. It is argued that the ethical direction taken by Dutch theology in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries had little inluence on the early theological training of the Nederduitch Hervormde Kerk and the theology of the Nederduitch Hervormde Kerk in general. Specifically, the article aims at demonstrating that the theology of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk has been influenced byparticularly the Dutch theologians Kohlbrugge, Hoedemaker and the later confessionals as well as by the German theologian Karl Barth. Attention is also given to Hoedemaker's position with regard to historical citicism and the accusation that he was a fundamentalist.
