This addition to the distinguished Classics of Western Spirituality series introduces readers to the faith and work of four figures of the 19th-century revival movement called the German Awakening: --August Tholuck (1799-1877) --Theodor Fliedner (1800-1864) --Johann Hinrich Wichern (1808-1881) --Friedrich von Bodelschwingh (1831-1910) The German Awakening engendered a spirituality that fostered human kindness, grounded it in awakened faith, and gave it the shape of loving service to society. This remarkable and unique scholarly contribution: --translates the majority of its materials for the first time in English. --includes a variety of spiritual genres--sermons, hymns, commentaries, mission statements, etc. --brings the fascinating lives, faith and work of these men to the attention of a broader audience. --has a preface by the eminent theologian Martin E.
