Today With Bullinger

9783290172862On the 27th of April, 1535, Heinrich Bullinger’s aptly titled Bericht der krancken, Wie man by den krancken vnd sterbende[n] menschen handlen, ouch wie sich ein yeder inn siner kranckheit schicken vnnd zum sterben rüsten sölle appeared thanks to the Zurich publisher Froschauer.

TVZ have published this book, along with lots of Bullinger’s most important works, in their 7 volume Heinrich Bullinger: Schriften, in modern German.

The book at hand gives detailed advice on ministry to the sick and dying.  It’s profoundly pastoral and even still very engaging.
