In Quest of Pentecost is the first english biography of a leading Dutch reformed pietist during the two-century Dutch Second Reformation period (1600-1800) in the Netherlands. Carl J. Schroeder uses the life and place of Jodocus van Lodenstein to discuss the movement's development and to evaluate the process of church renewal itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Our current cultural hunger for an experience of God's transforming Spirit coincides with Dr. Carl Schroeder's lucid rediscovery of the inner renewal of another seeker in another time. Jodocus van Lodenstein's 17th century quest for 'understanding, relevance and experience' brought balanced nurture into his own soul and expanded the power of a renewed Reformation in the Netherlands and throughout most of Northern Europe. Dr. Schroeder's 'In Quest of Pentecost' clearly challenges lethargic churches filled with empty hearts to open once again to the creative Spirit of Jesus Christ, 'the way, the truth and the life.'> -- Dr. Donald P. Buteyn, former dean, San Francisco Theological Seminary
...a welcome addition to the small but growing body of works in English that deal with the Nadere Reformatie or Dutch 'Second Reformation.' This study will be appreciated by anyone interested in the history and rich piety of the Dutch Reformed church. -- Dr. Richard Muller, Calvin College Seminary
A long overdue study in English of the preacher Albrecht Ritschl, described as the 'father of Pietism.'> * Religious Studies Review *
This is a helpful volume, introducing us to a poorly known but important tradition of Christian spirituality in the Reformed tradition. -- John Bolt * Calvin Theological Journal *
This work provides a fine survey of the life and work of Jodocus van Lodenstein and should be regarded as an introduction both to this pivotal figure and the period. -- Iain S. Maclean, James Madison University * Sixteenth Century Journal *
...this is a helpful volume, introducing us to a poorly known but important tradition of Christian spirituality in the Reformed tradition. -- John Bolt, Professor of Theology, Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids Michigan * The Bulletin of the Institute for Reformed Theology *
In a clear, readable style Carl Schroeder introduces us to a seminal figure in the Dutch Second Reformation. This man, Jodocus van Lodenstein, exemplifies an experiential approach to faith when the energy of the First Reformation had become frozen in dogma. Not only in his life but in his preaching, poetry and passion Lodenstein offers fresh resource for personal growth and the renewal of our churches. I am grateful for this contribution to the Renewal Literature. I heartily commend it to those who are seeking both 'new wine and new wineskins' for the 21st century. -- Dr. Ben C. Johnson, Columbia Theological Seminary
