The Confession de Foi Chretienne des Chretiens sans defense connus surtout dans les Pais-bas sous le nom de Mennonites (Confession of Christian Faith of the Nonresistant Christians, who Especially in the Netherlands Are Known as Mennonites) is a booklet of 142 pages, published 1771 (no place or publisher indicated), containing Preface, Confession (Dordrecht Confession, translated from a German edition of 1711), certificate of a number of Alsatian brethren, 18 prayers, seven hymns, all by Leonhard (Leenaerdt) Clock, and a sermon on 1 Corinthians 15:55-57, preached on the Sunday after Easter 1753 in the Mennonite church of Altona by the youngest preacher of that congregation (presumably it was Jan de Jager). This is the French edition of the Dordrecht Confession of 1632. It was reprinted at Nancy in 1862. An earlier reputed edition of 1660 could not be verified.
