I am interested in a book by the 18th-century Pietist Immanuel Gottlieb Brastberger entitled Evangelische Zeugnisse der Wahrheit zur Aufmunterung im wahren Christenthum theils aus den gewöhnlichen Sonn, Fest- und Feiertags-Evangelien, theils aus der Passions-Geschichte unsers Erlösers. A translation into Polish was published in 1883 and republished in 1904 or 1905. Would anyone be able to help me find a translation of all or part of this book into English?

I don't think there's a translation Jul 21, 2013

This book's complete title is Evangelische Zeugnisse der Wahrheit zur Ausmunterung im wahren Christenthum (Evangelical Testimonies of Truth on the Revival in True Christianity). It is authored by the German Lutheran pastor M. Immanuel Gottlob Brastberger (born 1716 - died 1764), a pastor at Nrtingen, Germany. This devotional work became hugely popular in both Germany and the U.S. The last page is a catalogue of other books by this publisher. This book is excellent for anyone interested in Pennsylvania German / Pennsylvania Dutch/ German-American history.

Thanks, Kim, for sharing this information. It turns out that the book also played a significant role in Polish history.
