In True Christianity, German Lutheran theologian Johann Arndt calls Christians to exhibit a “true, living, and active faith, which manifests itself in genuine godliness and the fruits of righteousness.” Arndt draws attention to Christ’s life in his people, writing that Christians are called to lead both an internal and external Christian life. First published in the early 1600s, this work is regarded by many as the foundation for all subsequent devotional books—both Catholic and Protestant. This edition is an English translation of the four-book German-language True Christianity, originally published in 1609.

The message of this foundational work is as relevant to Christians today as it was for Arndt’s original audience. Add True Christianity to your Logos library today, and learn more about living a life filled with the fruits of the Spirit.
