June 2007


In this issue of The Baptist Pietist Clarion, contributors discussed the meaning of the second adjective in the periodical’s title. Chris Armstrong provided an introduction to the historical origins of German Pietism, while one of his most illustrious predecessors in the church history chair of Bethel Seminary, Virgil Olson, contributed two articles on the influence of Pietism on the Swedish Baptist movement and the Baptist General Conference. Also in this vein were an article by seminary student David Wetzel, a bibliography from G.W. Carlson, and historic excerpts from longtime Bethel president Carl Lundquist and the dean of BGC historians, Adolf Olson.
