Adriaen Van Der Donck
Joris and Catinla are forced to move to a new island, and there they find peace for many years. Until a leader, Keith starts a war with the native people. With the help of a young lawyer named Adriaen Van Der Donck the people push for a radical idea... a land where the citizens govern themselves. The church wrestles with two questions. 1) how much tolerance is too much tolerance? 2) What does it mean for a Christian to be submissive to government authority?
