Christianity is Jewish by Edith Schaeffer( Book )

19 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edith Schaeffer lovingly encourages Christians to embrace the Jewishness of their faith. When the early church repudiated its Jewish roots, the New Testament became disconnected from its Hebraic foundations in the Old Testament. Edith Schaeffer presents a most convincing case for an unbreakable continuity in the flow of history from Genesis to Revelation. Her book reveals the thread of redemption in its Jewish context and Christianity as a grafted vine rooted in Judaism."--publisher website

"I would define 'hidden art' as the art found in the ordinary areas of everyday life. Each person has, I believe, some talent which is unfulfilled in some hidden area of his being -- a talent which could be expressed and developed." That is how Edith Schaeffer defines her theme in this fascinating and unusual book. The Hidden Art of Homemaking will appeal immediately to anyone who believes that the place in which we live needs to be a center of meaningful living and personal enrichment. - Back cover
The art of life by Edith Schaeffer( Book )

3 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. What is the secret of such a life? To be a creative genius? No. It is only to know the Creator--to love Him, to know His presence in our lives, to walk in His way. And as we are drawn closer to Him, the most ordinary events are transformed by his power and presence into a work of art that will shine forever. Drawing from the depth of Edith Schaeffer's experience, The Art of Life counsels and encourages with a month of daily readings which have been selected from Mrs. Schaeffer's eleven books. A brief prayer and Scripture readings accompany the selection for each day. But The Art of Life is also a work of art in itself--blending the written word, a prayer, and Bible readings with the exquisite drawings of artist Floyd G. Hosmer. Here the simple beauty of rural themes--a weathered barn, wild flowers, a country road--suggest in their own way the gentle beauty of the commonplace scenes in our own lives as they are touched by the Creator." -- From the publisher
