Dale Brown began his study of pietism nearly forty years ago "during the height of the ascendancy of the bitterly anti-pietistic neo-orthodox scholasticism."

Overview

Dale Brown began his study of pietism nearly forty years ago "during the height of the ascendancy of the bitterly anti-pietistic neo-orthodox scholasticism." At that time pietism was a bogey implying moralism, subjectivism, emotionalism, and a host of other such "isms." Brown set about to assess pietism in its historical situation, and to clearly define it as a term describing a historical movement instead of a group of traits present in contemporary Christianity.

Today many Christians are looking to pietism for answers to the problems of post-modernism. The new revision of this classic work will give scholars and laypersons excellent insight into this significant theological movement.
