Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


True Christianity is an incredibly influential book that sparked pietism and has undergone hundreds of translations over the past several centuries. Often compared to Martin Luther, Johann Arndt was a reformer intent on calling out the problems in the Church and its people. This intense book completely supports the idea that Christians should always live out what they believe. True Christianity is a must read for any Christian—especially those interested in reformed theology.

Basic information: Johann Arndt (or Arnd; December 27, 1555 – May 11, 1621) was a German Lutheran theologian who wrote several influential books of devotional Christianity. Although reflective of the period of Lutheran Orthodoxy, he is seen as a forerunner of pietism, a movement within Lutheranism that gained strength in the late 17th century.
