His chief work, however, was Die christliche Lehre der Siinde (2 vols., 1839; 5th ed., 1867; Eng.
6.11 Käberle, Siinde and Gnade, pp. 592 ff.
Siinde), a general term for wickedness or a wicked act.
Another work, which was soon translated into all the principal European languages, Die wahre Weihe des Zweiflers (1823; 9th ed., with the title Die Lehre von der Siinde and dem Versohner, 1870), the outcome of his own religious history, procured for him the position which he ever after held of the modern Pietistic apologist of Evangelical Christianity.
