About The Book

Although relatively unknown in America, Johann Christoph Blumhardt (1805-1880) is widely recognized in his native Germany, in part because of Friedrich Zuendel’s landmark biography, now available in English for the first time. Consistently in print since 1880, Zuendel’s account is fascinating on a historical level, but it is also infused with enduring pastoral insights and wisdom.

A visit to Blumhardt’s spiritually vibrant parish when he was just seventeen changed the course of Zuendel’s life. He decided to become a pastor, and remained a lifelong friend of Johann Christoph Blumhardt, thus personally experiencing – or hearing firsthand accounts of – much of what he records. Plough’s smaller volume, The Awakening, is based on three chapters from this book.

In documenting Blumhardt’s life, Zuendel aimed to help readers orient their lives to the kingdom of God. The result is a powerful account of one person’s faith in Jesus’ victory over all forces that bind and divide humanity.
