This translation is a most welcome addition to the growing scholarly literature available in English on this important topic. For newcomers to the study of Pietism and for scholars interested in the Pietist roots of the Brethren, Quaker, and Methodisttraditions, the bibliography alone is worth the price of the book....

Schneider (church history, U. of Marburg) tracks the development of German Pietism in the seventeenth century and its influence in the eighteenth on a number of leading thinkers in a range of reform movements within the Protestant contingent. He tracks pietism's geographical and theological shifts (his chapters on the Philadelphian movement in Germany are particularly interesting) and notes efforts at reconciliation with the mainstream, details splits and schisms, some of which depended on charismatic leaders, and describes new research that indicates there are two models of contemporary pietism based on the structures set by Hirsch and Schmidt.
