Pieper gives not only true Church History, but the background of World History for Germany as its faith was floundering. And there will be more mentions of World History in this continuing series. But more importantly we see a ray of light beginning to break forth in the gloom of political darkness… in what were termed “lay circles”.
That's right, if you follow this blog you are following “dead orthodoxy” promoting “an evil in the Christian Church”! Not just Franz Pieper, but also Franz Delitzsch has a defense for you… (Would some accuser now call me “Franzie baby”... please?)
