" Philipp Jakob Spener(1635-1705) Central figure in the development of, and chief apologist of Lutheran Pietism. ""He grew up in surroundings in which a mixture of Arndtian and Puritan Piety set the tone for daily living..."" ""Spener's biographers and the historians of Lutheran Pietism have manifested a tendency to treat his work as a seventeenth century novelty. They have called him the `father of Pietism' when in reality his life and thought constitute the highest development of a movement which had been in progress for a hundred years. In the background of everything Spener thought and did is the Arndtian piety from the central emphases of which he never really departed. It was laid into his cradle..."" ""His indebtedness to the Reformed tradition, particularly to Pietistic Puritans, should also be acknowledged...In his autobiography he confesses that his religious development was deeply influenced by Lewis Bayly's Practice of Piety, and Immanual Sonthom's Golden Gem...The works of Jeremia Dyke and of Richard Baxter were also known to him... That the piety which he advocated has a Reformed cast could hardly be doubted by anyone acquainted with Reformed Pietism.""--E. Ernest Stoeffler: The Rise of Evangelical Pietism, pp228, 230-232. We are pleased to offer this third edition of Spener's rather scarce Evangelische Lebens Pflichten, or ""Evangelical Practical Duties.""
