Celebrates Pietism's contributions by telling the stories of three early figures--Philipp Jakob Spener, Johanna Eleonora Petersen, and August Hermann Francke--as they attended to the issues of class, gender, poverty, and education through the lens of scripture. In addition to clarifying what historians call "one of the least understood movements in the history of Christianity," challenges a religious culture that juxtaposes faith and social action, and rehabilitates the Pietist heritage and its central role in the birth of Evangelicalism.
