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."
Many of these sermons originated from Schaeffer's sermons from given during their 1953-54 missionary furlough. Schaeffer traveled across the country speaking 346 times during 515 days, sometimes three times a day, about the deeper spiritual life.
No Little People was originally published in Britain as Ash Heap Lives.
Most Christians take and honest look at themselves and conclude that their limited talents, energy, and knowledge mean that they don't amount to much. Francis A. Schaeffer says that the biblical emphasis is quite different. With God there are no little people. This book contains sixteen sermons that explore the weakness and significance of humanity in relationship to the infinite and personal God. Each was preached by Schaeffer at L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland to the community that gathered there to work, learn, and worship together. The focus of this collection is the lasting truth of the Bible, the faithfulness of God, the sufficiency of the work of Christ, and the reality of God's Spirit in history. The sermons represent a variety of styles - some are topical, some expound Old Testament passages, and still others delve into New Testament texts. No Little People includes theological sermons and messages that focus specifically on daily life and Christian practice. Each sermon is a single unit, and all are valuable for family devotions or other group study and worship. Readers will encouraged by the value that God places on each person made in His image.
