Pietist Impulse

The Pietist Impulse in Christianity (Princeton Theological Monograph)
Two years ago I attended a conference at Bethel College in Minnesota.  The main thrust of the conference was the "pietist impulse in Christianity" which looked at the historical currents or 'impulses' of pietism in the church, mostly coming from continental Europe. 

Now the book is out with several good chapters on the relationship between Methodism and Pietism. 

This is probably not everyone's cup of tea, but it does provide an interesting framework for understanding this important impulse within the wider Christian tradition.
