Product Description

Michael Godfroid once remarked that "to write the history of Pietism is to write the history of modern Protestantism." From its origins in late sixteenth and early seventeenth-century German Lutheranism, Pietism spread to influence Lutheran, Reformed, and Wesleyan churches throughout Europe and North America. An emphasis on conversion through personal religious experience, on heartfelt union with Christ, and on the importance of Scripture as a guide in the spiritual life has characterized themovement whose influence is still evident today.
This volume is the most comprehensive collection of Pietist writings available in English. Here, skillfully edited by Professor Erb, are the works of Philipp Jakib Spener, August Francke, Gottfried Arnold, the Halle School, Gerhard Tersteegen, Johann Bengel, Friederich Oetinger and the Count von Zinzendorf (the leader of the Herrnhut).
