(Under Pietism's Influence) Public worship ceased to be primarily a celebration of redemption and became chiefly an act of edification, of learning and instruction.  Pietism succeeded in introducing a new theology of worship grounded not in the delivery of the fruits of Christ's redeeming work but in the edification of the saint.  In other words, worship became more like a classroom or lecture hall to reform and improve life and less like a hospital for dying sinners to receive Christ's gift of life. (p. 121).
