Overview:

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.


History:

One of the first works written after Schaeffer's spiritual crisis in the early 1950s, but not published until later as True Spirituality. 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, that without this book there would have been no L'Abri. The content itself was born out of a spiritual crisis Schaeffer experienced in the early 50s.

"We have said that we are to love God enough to say, 'Thank You' even for the difficult things [in previous chapters of True Spirituality]. We must immediately understand, as we say this, that this has no meaning whatsoever unless we live in a personal universe in which there is a personal God who objectively exists." ~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, True Spirituality

Keywords: spirituality

"...it is obvious that there is no mechanical solution to true spirituality or the true Christian life. Anything that has the mark of the mechanical upon it is a mistake. It is not possible to say, read so many chapters of the Bible every day, and you will have this much sanctification." ~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, True Spirituality

Keywords: spirituality, mechanical, non-mechanical

"It is not possible to say, pray so long every day, and you will have a certain amount of sanctification. It is not possible to add the two together and to say, you will have this big a piece of sanctification. This is a purely mechanical solution, and denies the whole Christian position." ~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, True Spirituality

Keywords: spirituality, mechanical, non-mechanical, sanctification

"...the Christian life, true spirituality, can never have a mechanical solution. The real solution is being cast up ~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, True Spirituality

Keywords: spirituality, mechanical, non-mechanical, sanctification

Publisher's Description:

Francis Shaeffer had been serving as a pastor for over a decade when he began to wonder if Christianity really made a difference in people's lives. True Spirituality, a twentieth-century spiritual classic, outlines the result of his effort to "start at the beginning" and re-examine his faith. The book is a treasure trove of wisdom for Christians trying to discover what true spirituality looks like in everyday life. Includes a foreword by Chuck Colson and an introduction by Dr. Jerram Barrs, director of the Schaeffer Institute.
