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.


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.

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.
