Product Description

On how historical Pietism can be a rich resource for evangelical renewal

The historical movement known as Pietism emphasized the response of faith and inward transformation as crucial aspects of conversion to Christ. Unfortunately, Pietism today is often equated with a "holier-than-thou" spiritual attitude, religious legalism, or withdrawal from involvement in society.

In this book Roger Olson and Christian Collins Winn argue that classical, historical Pietism is an influential stream in evangelical Christianity and that it must be recovered as a resource for evangelical renewal. They challenge misconceptions of Pietism by describing the origins, development, and main themes of the historical movement and the spiritual-theological ethos stemming from it. The book also explores Pietism's influence on contemporary Christian theologians and spiritual leaders such as Richard Foster and Stanley Grenz.

Editorial Reviews

Word & World
"A very valuable book. . . . Well worth reading."

J. I. Packer
"The Pietist heritage, highlighting the priority of a vital relationship with God, is currently undervalued but is extremely valuable, so this full and friendly history from inside the movement, the first of its kind, is a great gift to us all."

Donald K. McKim
"What an excellent historical and theological introduction to Pietism — its origins, developments, and emphases! The authors successfully reclaim Pietism as `a main ingredient in the evangelical recipe.' . . . A sound and splendid retrieval of an important, many-faceted movement, this book must be highly recommended."

First Things
"Olson and Collins Winn . . . . offer a coherent picture of Pietism and its importance for Evangelical theology."

World & Word, Spring 2016
"A very valuable book, and the best contemporary, one-volume introduction to the subject that I know. . . . Very well worth reading, and I would commend it to all readers."
