In the early 1740s, one of the most controversial religious figures of Europe made a visit to America. Count Zinzendorf’s sermons, hymns, mission activities and new approach to building Christian communities had already inspired thousands in Europe. He brought his “ecumenical theology of the heart” to the German-speaking population of Pennsylvania, but immediately found himself embroiled in controversy.
The Count speaks once again in A Collection of Sermons from Zinzendorf’s Pennsylvania Journey by Craig Atwood and Julie Tomberlin Weber. In this selection of sermons he preached during his sojourn in Pennsylvania, we see the main themes of Zinzendorf’s “heart religion” and “theology of the cross” — themes that continue to speak in the midst of our own controversial times.
These sermons will touch your heart as they did those who listened to them over 250 years ago. Paperback, 152 pages.
