"Stier united in himself the teacher, the savant, the pastor, and the author," writes Lacroix in the introduction. "In each of these characters he accomplished more than the whole life-work of an ordinary man." Using the 2-volume German biography of Stier written by his sons as a source text, as well as the personal letters of Stier, Lacroix has pieced together a fascinating portrait of this important, German theologian. Lacroix's biography of Rudolf Stier is a moving and inspiring story, beginning with Stier's university days to his sudden death while serving as a Superintendent at Eisleben (hometown of Martin Luther).

About Rudolf Stier

Rudolf Stier (1800–1862) entered the University of Berlin to study law, but abandoned that idea for his love of poetry. As a consequence of the unexpected death of a young woman he loved, his focus turned to theology and he entered the pastoral seminary in Wittenberg where he devoted himself to a comprehensive study of the Bible. Stier was a pastor at Frankenleben from 1829–1838 and at Wichlinghausen from 1838–1847. In 1850 he was called to the office of superintendent at Schkeuditz, then was superintendent at Eisleben from 1859 until his death. He was the author and translator of numerous books and commentaries, but is chiefly known for his devotional and mystical commentaries The Words of the Lord Jesus.
