YearTitleAuthorHistorical ContextOverview
1968Escape From ReasonFrancis A. SchaefferFrom Schaeffer's lectures at Swanwick, England - British Inter-Varsity - Escape From Reason is actually written after The God Who Is There, and is the second book of Schaeffer's Trilogy. It was accidentally published before The God Who Is There apparently due to a publishing mixup. At some point during his early writing, Francis Schaeffer is known to have asked Betty Carlson to show him how to write a book, as up until this time he had only written sermons and lectures, and a few booklets and Bible studies for Children For Christ. Note also, that Betty would later help Edith as well but in a slightly different way.Schaeffer here traces trends in Twentieth Century thought that lead up to what he calls the "Age of Non-Reason." ~ This first release targets the changes in society that have manifested themselves due to ethical and religious relativism. "It is imperative in our generation to bring historic Christianity into contact with twentieth-century man and his intellectual and cultural questions. This was the theme of my two earlier books Escape From Reason and The God Who Is There." ~ FS, from Preface to Death In The City - The core thrust of the book is to show how the modern conception of "truth" is now rooted in non-reason.
1968The God Who Is ThereFrancis A. SchaefferThis book is from Schaeffer's 1965 fall lectures at Wheaton College, IL on spirituality called "Speaking Historic Christianity into the Twentieth Century World." - Wheaton asked Schaeffer to allow them to publish the lectures as a book for their students. Transcribed by them and sent to him. Schaeffer had worked out an agreement with Wheaton and Westmont for their students to have a copy of the transcript and he retained the rights, hoping to edit and publish the work. - Written before Escape from Reason, however published second. The God Who Is There later became the first book of Schaeffer's Trilogy. Schaeffer moves the reader on a journey below the "line of despair" and shows the immense monolith of the Humanistic movement, then reasserts the Lordship of Christ in the whole of Christian life, as the title suggest, revealing the God Who Is There is the Twentieth Century setting.
1969L'AbriEdith SchaefferFrancis and Edith saw L'Abri as a witness of living by faith and prayer before the watching world. Their work was always seen as being in tandem. Here Edith sets out to chronicle the early history of L'Abri. Most of the book was written, except for chapter 21, about five years before Francis wrote his books. The manuscript was shown to visitors at least once to tell them the story of L'Abri before it was published. One such reader, Larry Snyder, stayed up all night reading the book, so that he could start studying the next day. He would eventually be over the Rochester branch. Edith says in the forward to Betty Carlson's book, "The Unhurried Chase That Ended At L'Abri," that if it had not been for Betty, the book never would have been written. Betty felt led by God to give Edith and entire month's check to send Edith away for a time to write the book.Edith writes a very personal and "real" work that recounts the history of L'Abri thus far. It is a testimony of the hand of God at work in their lives "before a watching world" as thousands of visitors journey to their house from all over the world.
1969Death In The CityFrancis A. SchaefferSchaeffer describes in his preface to the book that Death In The City is "based upon a series of lectures given at Wheaton College, Illinois, 30 September-4 October 1968." This series was called Speaking the Historic Christian Position Into the 20th Century when it was transcribed by Wheaton and sent to him. The Wheaton lectures would form the basis of Schaeffer's first three works and elements of his later thought can be found in seed form in them as well.As a work, Death In The City was intended to give a scriptural
exposition to reinforce the need for bringing historic Christianity
forward as the answer for 20th Century man's dilemma. Some printings
contain the following remarks in the preface: "But these answers must be
firmly related to exposition of Scripture and it is this which the
present volume seeks to do. In addition we must demonstrate that the
Personal-Infinite God exists, an aspect covered by my wife in her book
L'Abri" Note, that here Schaeffer means to indicate that the "reality"
of these answers must be lived out, and L'Abri is one example of how
this can be done, as documented by Edith. He continues: "All these
elements must be kept together as a unity. To separate them would grieve
the Holy Spirit and sever the link with modern man. May God grant us
reformation, revival and constructive revolution [note: Schaeffer
advocated Civil Disobedience not violence] in the orthodox, evangelical

Schaeffer focuses his attention on Jeremiah, the "weeping prophet,"
as an example of our attitude toward the world and highlights the
teachings of Paul in Romans as a framework for understanding the
Biblical perspective on the state of mankind. His constant them through
the book is that we are to be preaching God's judgment and truth, but
lamenting and showing compassion also.
1970Pollution And The Death Of ManFrancis A. SchaefferLynn Townsend White Jr. presented his article "The Historical Roots of Our Ecologic Crisis" December 26, 1966 which makes the accusation that Christianity is responsible for our current pollution problem. Schaeffer is ready to take on the debate.Never to shy away from difficult subjects, and intent on the Gospel being applied to the whole of life, Schaeffer tackles pollution from a Biblical perspective. The book is primarily a reply to Lynn White Jr's article accusing Christianity of causing the current pollution problem of our age. Newer publications of the book include a chapter from Udo Middleman: (not in the Complete works), where Udo gives insight into Schaeffer's environmental concerns. "He wrote in response to a nascent criticism of Christianity as the source of environmental problems. His concern was not only that a neglect of the environment would spell the death of man by our life-support system. He was also concerned that the death of man might be brought about by the very environmental programs claiming to seek his salvation." Udu goes on to explain that environmentalist have gone further than just attacking abuses, but are making requirements on the philosophical conception of what mankind actually is. To explain, they are doing this essentially because a they have no other recourse than to devalue mankind as a mere animal among animals. Thus they destroy man's dignity of being in the place God intended.
1970The Church At The End Of The Twentieth CenturyFrancis A. SchaefferSchaeffer returns to his previous subject matter, yet specifically targets the sociological problems the church must deal with in the twentieth century. "In this book I have attempted to describe the sociological milieu in which the church of Jesus Christ now finds itself." ~ FAS, Preface to The Church At the end of the Twentieth Century.
1970The Mark Of A ChristianFrancis A. SchaefferAccording to James Sire at InterVarsity, Schaeffer wanted it published by itself first, but as his editor he advised that it would not work well by itself. So they first added it to the The Church At The End Of The Twentieth Century as an appendix. Later Schaeffer asked to print it again and this time they printed it by itself.The importance of the book to Schaeffer is evidenced by the amount of times Schaeffer had it published. It was first published as an appendix to The Church At The End Of The Twentieth Century (InterVarsity, also 1970), then by itself through (InterVarsity, 1970). It was published at another time in essay form for Christianity Today (September 11, 1970) of that same year. Then, it is also in included as an appendix to The Great Evangelical Disaster (Crossway, 1984), which was Schaeffer's final work. Lastly, it is of course in the fourth volume of his Complete Works.Schaeffer here probably gives his most extensive exposition of his concept of the balance of Truth & Love. Schaeffer explains the dual role of the church. Explaining that the church must learn to both maintain doctrinal purity (truth) as well as display a genuine love for each other and the watching world, which is the true mark of a Christian.
1971The Hidden Art of Homemaking: Creative Ideas for Enriching Everyday LifeEdith SchaefferSchaeffer mentions in his work, "How I have come to write my books" that he felt a certain balance had been achieved in their published work after Edith published Hidden Art. He desired for people to know the practical side of their teaching and not just the apologetic side.Edith shows how to use everyday domestic task to show creative expression. Since God is creative and has made us creative, we glorify Him when we live life artfully.
1971The Church Before The Watching WorldFrancis A. SchaefferIn this work, Schaeffer updates a portion of his material from The Church at the End of the Twentieth Century yet is specifically intended to be in contrast to his work The Mark of a Christian, emphazing the purity of the visible church, specifically doctrinal purity.Schaeffer gives an in depth historical chronologies of the origins of Liberalism. Regularly throughout, he contrast these views with the historic Biblical perspective. He further warns of dangers of controversy and the need to maintain doctrinal purity and love, by the practice of genuine oneness before the watching world.
1971True SpiritualityFrancis A. SchaefferThe content of True Spirituality itself was born out of a spiritual crisis Schaeffer experienced in the early 50s and his letters of the time show the formation of the early concepts. Yet the work itself began to come about when Schaeffer was on a speaking tour in the U.S. while on furlough in 1953-54. He spoke 346 times in 515 days. As he further honed his thoughts, several core sermons began to develop. Edith documents in The Tapestry that he was speaking at a Bible camp in the Dakotas when he had something of a spiritual brainstorm. Just prior he had began to write a series of sermons that are now found in "No Little People," such as "The Lord's Work in the Lord's Way." Studying extensively and teaching each day from July 5th to 12th on a series he called "Sanctification I, II, III, IV, V," the corpus of True Spirituality began to develop.

The work was not published until much later however and in Schaeffer's "Two Contents, Two Realities," Schaeffer remarks, "I went out to Dakota, and I spoke at a Bible conference. The Lord used it, and there was a real moving of God in that place. I preached it back in Switzerland. And eventually it became the book True Spirituality." Schaeffer says, in the preface of True Spirituality that without this book there would have been no L'Abri.
Schaeffer gives an explanation of what True Spirituality should look like. He describes a moment-by-moment relationship with Christ that transforms us, our relationships, the church, and finally total culture.
1972He Is There And He Is Not SilentFrancis A. SchaefferSchaeffer feels that the epistemology is essential to understanding his earlier work. He writes this book to solidify this concept.The third book of the Trilogy, He Is There And He Is Not Silent tackles the essential teaching of epistemology, by Schaeffer's definition, "How that we know and how we know we know."
1972Basic Bible StudiesFrancis A. SchaefferJerram Barrs interviewed Edith Schaeffer about this group of studies and she indicated that these were originally wrote for a person with whom Francis was discipling. In the Tapestry (pg. 308), Edith mentions that this person was their medical doctor and places the date in 1948, (the same year she began to write her letters). They later were published internally by L'Abri for the study of visitors in the late 1950s. Herein Schaeffer feels the need to address the prevailing Biblical illiteracy, providing introductions to scripture as done at L'Abri. Other than Schaeffer's writings of paphlets for Children for Christ and a series of studies called "Everybody Can Know" written about the same time, but also published in 1972, the Basic Bible Studies represent some of Schaeffer's earliest work. 25 Bible studies that introduce the reader to studying the Bible using it's most common themes. These themes are God, God's dealing with man, Salvation, and Things of the Future. Schaeffer's emphasis is to show that the Bible contains a system, which answers the questions of every human being. There is a specific emphasis on prayer as a prerequisite in understanding.
1972Genesis In Space And TimeFrancis A. SchaefferChallenges the perception of Genesis as myth as proposed by Religious Liberalism.Deals with the first 11 chapters of Genesis as a historic space-time event which answer the questions posed by modern man.
1972The New Super SpiritualityFrancis A. SchaefferWritten to draw attention to the new mysticism that has crept into the church in many corners, where there is an over emphasis on emotional content, often without content that engages the mind.Schaeffer identifies the problem of anti-intellectualism in the church and the new "Super-Spirituality" that looks more like mysticism than Biblical Christianity at times. He prescribes a more balanced spirituality that places the mind in it's proper place in the life of the Christian.
1972Back To Freedom And DignityFrancis A. SchaefferB.F. Skinner publishes his book "Beyond Freedom and Dignity" - Skinner teaches that the problems of the world can be solved only by dealing with human behavior. He believes that concepts like "freedom" and "dignity" are mere human construction and are counterproductive to human development.Schaeffer advocates the restoration of freedom and dignity, that is being lost by the advances of Liberalism's effects on Psychology and men like Skinner's concepts of "cultural engineering."
1973Art And The BibleFrancis A. SchaefferSchaeffer gives a wonderful analysis of the role of art and the Bible and gives a prescription for the Christian artist.
1973Everybody Can KnowFrancis & Edith SchaefferThis was based off of previous studies on Luke written for their earlier ministry, Children For Christ originally written together in 1948. A collection of studies on the book of Luke now revised for family study.
1974No Little PeopleFrancis A. SchaefferA collection fo Schaeffer's sermons, some of these sermons where originally written during Schaeffer's furlough speaking tour in 1953-1954.A collection of Schaeffer's sermon lessons that generally focus on areas of Christian life and ministry in the 20th century setting. ~ Within this collection of sermons there is a common theme among many of the sermons that "there are no little people, and no little places."
1974Two Contents Two Realities Francis A. SchaefferTwo Contents, Two Realities is the text of the "position paper" which was sent by the Congress to all those who would be participants at the International Congress of World Evangelism, Lausanne, Switzerland, July 1974. Schaeffer spoke during the conference presenting, 'Form and Freedom In The Church," as well as participating in a panel discussion.In many ways Two Contents, Two Realities represents a brief summary of Schaeffer's prescription for the church in our time. They also are in many ways a definition of L'Abri. The two contents he deals with are: 1.) Sound doctrine 2.) Honest answers to honest questions. The two realties are 1.) true spirituality and 2.) the beauty of human relationship. These essentially approach Schaeffer's Biblical concept of standing for truth (sound doctrine) and love (exhibiting real spiritual love and compassion toward people) in other terms. This prescription is really Schaeffer's apologetic. The church must stand for doctrinal purity all the while showing compassion for the lost with grace.
1974Introduction to Francis Schaeffer : Study Guide to a TrilogyFrancis A. SchaefferA booklet containing twelve studies on Schaeffer's Trilogy as well as an important section entitled, "How I Have Come To Write My Books." Each study includes a Purpose, two or three topical question subheadings, Implications, and Summary sections which are meant to be used as you read through each of the selected readings from either of the three books.
1975Ash Heap LivesFrancis A. SchaefferAsh Heap Lives was the original title of the British publication of what would later be printed in the US as "No Little People." The title is an important sermon originally written during his speaking tour during the Schaeffer's furlough in 1954. Many of these particular lectures give insight into some of Schaeffer's early and developing thought, and pre-date much of his published work.Based off of Schaeffer's sermon, Ash Heap Lives, it is a powerful illustration of Schaeffer's approach. He leads us and the non-believer to the proper conclusion of the worth of the acquisition of "things" ("personal peace and affluence"... in other words, self focused, idolatry), belonging to the Ash Heap.
1975Christianity is JewishEdith SchaefferBased on Edith's talks originally called "A bird's eye view of the Bible," originally taught to a literary club which thereafter became a Bible study.Edith gives insight into the historical nature of Christianity and portrays the Bible as a unified document in which God has progressively unfolded the plan of salvation.
1975Joshua and the Flow of Biblical HistoryFrancis A. SchaefferSchaeffer held Joshua to be a significant work both personally in discerning God's leading in life but also saw the book as an important historical book connecting the Pentateuch and the rest of the Bible. This is his treatment on this very important book in scripture.
1975No Final ConflictFrancis A. SchaefferDirected against the notion that where Science and Biblical inquiry conflict, and that the Bible must always be wrong.Schaeffer here explains that where Science and the Bible meet and conflict, if one is honest in study and inquiry there will be no final conflict.
1975What is a FamilyEdith SchaefferEdith is at this time 60 years old, and is urged by Billy and Marilyn Zeoli to put a lecture into written form. This book would be Edith's present to Francis on their 40th wedding anniversary.Edith shared her own life experiences that have formed her view of family. "A family is a mobile strung together with invisible threads--delicate, easily broken at first, growing stronger through the years, in danger of being worn thin at times, but strengthened again with special care."
1976How Should We Then LiveFrancis A. SchaefferAccording to Frank Schaeffer, Francis' son, the film idea originated from him. However, we have been informed that the idea itself was suggested to Frank by Rick Pearcy, to pass on to Francis. Nevertheless, from an interview with Colin Duriez, Schaeffer indicates and confirms that Frank was at least persuasive in getting his father to move into film during this time. However, it is evident from this same interview that Dr. Schaeffer specifically had hoped for an opportunity to make a rebuttal of Kenneth Clark's "Civilisation," and Jacob Bronowski's Ascent of Man. Apparently Billy Zeoli the president of Gospel Films in 1972 was suggesting a TV series in this regard. One thing that should not be forgotten however is that much of the core early inspiration for a large portion of the historic content came from Schaeffer's tour of Europe after WW II. He had been sent by the Independent Board for Presbyterian Foreign Missions to survey the needs and state of the church in Europe. After these travels, the Schaeffer's would become missionaries of the IBPFM.An eye opening book and film that gives us Schaeffer's view of western civilization. Schaeffer, walks us through the historical timeline from Rome to his present day showing the trends in thought, ideas and worldviews that have gotten us here.
1977A Way of SeeingEdith SchaefferEdith compiles her articles from Christianity today that collectively inspire the practical understand that brings Christ to the center of everyday life.
1978AfflictionEdith SchaefferEdith give insight from many personal experiences that help explain the purpose of human suffering. Her emphasis is on the personal God who cares and understands and is not absent from our current situation. She seeks to answer the troubling question, "Why?" and stresses God's empathy and applying Job and other Scripture in a personal, caring approach to physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering.
1978LifelinesEdith SchaefferEdith gives an insightful look into the 10 Commandments, showing their relevance and meaning for in the context of a Post-Christian world. Her emphasis is on the personal God who cares and understands and is not absent from our current situation.
1979Whatever Happened To The Human RaceFrancis A. SchaefferOne thing that should not be forgotten however is that much of the core early inspiration for a large portion of the historic content came from Schaeffer's tour of Europe after WW II. He had been sent by the Independent Board for Presbyterian Foreign Missions to survey the needs and state of the church in Europe. After these travels, the Schaeffer's would become missionaries of the IBPFM.Once the value of human life has been depricated, as in Roe v. Wade and the Baby Doe Case, no one is safe. Once "quality of life" is substituted for the absolute value of human life itself, we are all endangered. Already respected scientists are calling for a time period following birth (a week or so) to decide if newborns have "sufficient quality of life" to be allowed to live. Already committees of "medical professionals" would like to decide whether the "quality of life" of the elderly or anyone seriously ill is high enough to allow them to go on living. Over 20 years ago, the renowned pediatric surgeon and Surgeon General of the United States, C. Everett Koop, M.D., joined with one of the leading Christian thinkers of the 20th century, Francis A. Schaeffer (1912 - 1984), to analyze the widespread implications and frightening loss of human rights brought on by the practices of abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. They viewed their time as a crucial turning point. Choices were being made that undermined human rights at their most basic level. Practices once labeled "unthinkable" were then considered acceptable. The destruction of human life, young and old, began to be sanctioned on an ever-increasing scale by the medical profession, by the courts, by parents, and by silent citizens. Refuting the faulty logic of their time (and predicting 21st century thinking as well), these two great minds set a clear base for Christian thought on these subjects.
1981A Christian ManifestoFrancis A. SchaefferIn contrast to documents like the atheistic Communist Manifesto and the Humanist Manifesto, Schaeffer seeks to establish a manifesto that solidifies the Christian worldview. Some have accused Schaeffer of "going political" in his later books, however Schaeffer indicates in his preface that this is just another natural step forward in conveying the Lordship of Christ in all things.Schaeffer asserts the return to America's Judeo-Christian foundation.
1981The TapestryEdith SchaefferOut of a desire to document the weaving of her and Francis' life together, Edith begins to write. Between Edith's family letters (which are now printed in two volumes, combined pages equalling 886 pages) and Francis endless collection of papers from their life together she begins to craft the wonderful story. We know from the Francis Schaeffer Collection that Francis had collected over 30,000 pieces of personal correspondence.Edith documents the story of her and Francis Schaeffer's life together, giving the history and detailed explanation of the founding and continuing work of L'Abri.
1982The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, 5 VolumesFrancis A. SchaefferSchaeffer agrees to revise and edit his works for this 5 volume set.Together Schaeffer's works represent a collection on the Lordship of Christ in the whole of life. A Christian view of Philosophy, Culture, the Bible as Truth, Spirituality rooted in Christ, the Church founded in Truth and Love, and Western History describing the ongoing battle.
1983Common Sense Christian LivingEdith SchaefferEdith films a five part series on her study of Common Sense Christian Living.Part 1. & 2.) Continuity in Family. 3. & 4.) What is Real Spirituality? 5.) What is Prayer.
1983Who Is for PeaceFrancis A. Schaeffer, with Vladimir Bukovsky, and James HitchcockThis essay contribution is based upon a lecture given at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., on May 22, 1982. The host committee of politicians included such names as Strom Thermond, James B. Edwards, and Jack Kemp.Schaeffer is a contributor here in a book on war/peace (Not in the Complete Works).
1984The Great Evangelical DisasterFrancis A. SchaefferDuring the final work of this book Schaeffer was assisted by Lane T. Denis to complete the work on time. Schaeffer was struggling heavily with sickness due to Cancer during this time. Early portions of the book are revisions of segments from The Church Before The 20th Century, The Church Before The Watching World, and two appendices, "What Difference Does Innerancy Make" and "Learning from the past in order to do better in the future." as well as a small segment from No Final Conflict. In essence the first third of the book is somewhat a "remix" of previous content and which is then advanced into a newer context in Schaeffer's last message to the church.A book reflecting Schaeffer's dissatisfaction with the evangelical church and warns of the obstacles in her way and prescribes the means needed to reform culture. This would be his last full book (Not in the Complete Works, added to them later).
1984Who Is for LifeFrancis A. Schaeffer, with Mother Theresa, Malcom Muggeridge, and John Stott and others.The Acknowledgement in the front of the book indicates that these were essays given at Hyde Park, on June 25th, 1983 for the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC). The book includes essays by Alison Davis, John Stott, Mother Teresa, Malcolm Muggeridge, Francis Schaeffer, Nual Scarisbrick, and Melinda Delahoyde.Schaeffer is a contributor here in a book on abortion (Not in the Complete Works). Schaeffer's segment it called, It Is Your Life That's Involved.
1985The Letters of Francis SchaefferFrancis A. SchaefferFollowing Schaeffer's death, Lane T. Dennis worked to organize and preserve important segments of letters on various topics from Schaeffer's correspondence, giving a wonderful glimpse of Schaeffer. Given that the size of the collection of personal correspondence in the Francis Schaeffer Collection (over 30,000 pieces), we can now see that these are just a small portion of Schaeffer's letters.Compiled by Lane T. Dennis this is a collection of Schaeffer's letters on three significant subjects. 1.) The Reawakening of Spiritual Reality (letters in and around Schaeffer's spiritual crisis in the 50s. 2.) Spiritual Reality in Daily Living and 3.) Spiritual Reality in Marriage, Family, and Sexual Relations.
1986Forever MusicEdith SchaefferInspired by the gift of a baby grand piano that was built the same year as her and Francis Schaeffer's marriage.Forever music is the encompassing story of how the gift of a baby grand piano turned a new page in Edith's life, still fresh with grief from the death of her husband. Discovering that her piano was built in the same year as her marriage to her husband Francis Schaeffer, brought a surge of inspiration and reflection.
1987The Art Of LifeEdith SchaefferAn ordered devotional on prayer. From a portion of the publishers description: "Written with Louis Gifford Parkhurst (ed.) Life is a work of art--shaped by the subtle shades of patience and creativity, faith and truth, hope and love. And when the everyday activities of home and work become infused with these qualities, the hidden art that lies beneath the surface begins to shine through."
1988With Love, Edith. The L'Abri Family Letters 1948-1960Edith SchaefferOriginally written to just Edith's parents. They were eventually copied and given to other family and friends until they became known as the "L'Abri Family Letters."The first volume of the L'Abri family letters
1989Dear Family: The LAbri Family Letters 1961 to 1986Edith SchaefferOriginally written to just Edith's parents. They were eventually copied and given to other family and friends until they became known as the "L'Abri Family Letters."The second volume of the L'Abri family letters
1990TrilogyFrancis SchaefferPublished after his death with the understanding that Schaeffer viewed these three works as foundational to all the rest. Schaeffer often referred to the three works that make up the trilogy as the hub and his other works as the spoke of the wheel.Schaeffer's Three earlier works, The God Who Is There, Escape From Reason, and The God Who is there, in one volume.
1992The Life Of PrayerEdith SchaefferAs an outgrowth of her concern that individuals gain a proper perspective on prayer's potential and proven effectiveness, Edith Schaeffer provides spiritual, practical insight into this mystical communion available to God's people. Lessons learned by various Biblical figures offer spiritual insight, practical application and instructional foundation for discussions.

1994A Celebration of Marriage: Hopes and RealitiesEdith SchaefferEdith gives a realistic and biblically balanced view of what marriage is meant to be.
199410 Things Parents Must Teach Their Children: And Learn for ThemselvesEdith SchaefferEdith Schaeffer has mined the rich, God-breathed wisdom of the Ten Commandments and applied it to the challenges of family life. Writing in the imaginative and endearing way that has won her millions of readers, Schaeffer opens the stone tablets presented to Moses and makes the precepts leap off the page for modern readers. You will turn again and again to this manual to feast of these rich and timeless truths. If you crave some good old-fashioned 'rules' for your life, you will find them in this biblically based 'instruction book.' Comprehensive and unconventional, this treatment of the Ten Commandments is positive and action-oriented, applying biblical principles to family living.
1998The Finished Work Of ChristFrancis SchaefferPublished by the Francis Schaeffer Foundation (Debbie & Udo Middleman). These studies were first given in a student flat in Lausanne, Switzerland in the 1960s.The studies in this work deal with the first eight chapters of Romans.
1998Corruption vs. True SpiritualityFrancis Schaeffer and Vishal Mangalwadi This is an additional resource to True Spirituality by Vishal Mangalwadi, a friend and student of Francis Schaeffer. Quote: "Experts know that corruption is the number one economic problem in many countries today. However, they do not know how to fight it without imposing "benevolent" dictatorships or similarly undesirable governments. Mangalwadi adds seventy-five pages to Francis Schaeffer's classic book True Spirituality to expound on the power of biblical spirituality to heal nations"
