Highlights

“The difference between artificial ‘birth control,’ which should be called birth prevention or contraception, and the control of the number of births in a family in ways that are in harmony with the natural and moral law, is that one weakens the moral fibre, while the other strengthens it; one lessens the respect of the husband for his wife, while the other elevates it.”

From David Goldstein in Suicide Bent

3. [SPENER, PHILIPP JACOB]. Christliche Buß-Predigten / Darinnen verschiedene texte der heiligen Schrifft einfältig erkläret / und etliche wichtige / zur Erbauung deß wahren Christenthums nötige Materien / auff gehaltene offentliche Buß- Fast- und Bet-Tage [4 Volumes Bound Together]. Johann David Zunner, 1700-1710. Thick, vellum bound book (21.5 x 20 cm) in very good condition.

Previous owner’s signature in pencil on front endpaper. One worm trail to front endpapers, but no further. Pages clean. Fraktur. Phillip Jacob Spener (1635-1705) was a German Lutheran theologian whose moral reforms gave birth to Pietism. Therefore, he is regarded as the father of Pietism. This work is a scarce collection of his sermons, in four volumes bound together, primarily on matters scriptural. Presumably, he composed them while he was leader of the Lutheran Church in Frankfurt am Main and began his “collegia pietatis,” the small group “bible studies” of the laity. According to Worldcat records, as of 2016, this work is scarce in libraries worldwide and particularly North America. See OCLC 832548591.
