Among its other virtues, An Introduction to German Pietism also serves as an introduction to German scholars on the subject. No other recent book as effectively expounds the past thirty years of historians' struggles with this topic or provides as thorough a narrative, or suggests as many appropriate avenues for further inquiry. The work is nuanced, detailed, and fully conversant with the hundreds of years of sectarian debate in its social context and current historiography. The theme itself if a complex one and Shantz makes an admirable attempt to elucidate it In sum, this book is a laudable contribution to the field of Pietist studies.

It tackles a complicated historiographical field while still emphasizing Shantz's own interpretation of Pietism's importance in the development of modern Europe and modern religion. Most importantly, it serves its primary purpose as an engaging and clear introduction to the study of German Pietism. You may have already requested this item.
