Barend Klaas Kuiper

Barend Klaas Kuiper, 1877-1961 was a history professor[1][2] and author who wrote about Dutch Calvinist church history and the Protestant Reformation.[3]

Kuiper was the first history professor at Calvin College (Calvin Theological Seminary), Grand Rapids Michigan, beginning in 1900,[4] a position he held until 1928, when he was dismissed after watching a movie.[5][6]

He was the editor of De Wachter.

Kuiper wrote a number of books, a few of which are still available, including The Church In History, (1951) which has been used widely as a textbook in Christian Education. Other works in English include Martin Luther: The Early Years and With All My Heart. He also has authored books that have been published in the Dutch language.[7]
