L'Abri by Edith Schaeffer( Book )

39 editions published between 1969 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1955 an American family moved into a chalet on the side of a steep Swiss alp. They did not know exactly why God had brought them there, what He wanted them to do, or even where the money to live on would come from. But He began opening doors, and people with questions about life's meaning began finding the way to their home. Edith Schaeffer, wife of Dr. Francis Schaeffer, tells the remarkable story of how God led them step by step, as that one small chalet grew into a whole community. It took the name L'Abri (French for shelter). Day by day, God faithfully provided for their family, and eventually for the entire community. The Schaeffers believed that truth must be demonstrated as well as debated. They wanted to show the world through the transformed lifestyle of a believing community that the personal-infinite God is really here in our generation. In a society losing the ability to distinguish between Christian and non-Christian values, truth and untruth, good and evil, L'Abri equipped people to make that distinction. For more than thirty years, people have come to L'Abri from all walks of life and from many countries, searching for truth and reality. There they find someone who cares for them personally, who listens carefully to their questions, and who gives them answers based on an uncompromising commitment to Biblical truth. L'Abri now has branches in several other countries and has affected the lives of literally thousands of people around the world

Christianity is Jewish by Edith Schaeffer( Book )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schaeffer presents a most convincing case for an unbreakable continuity in the flow of history from Genesis to Revelation ... This book deserves a re-edition at a time of unrelenting persistence of anti-Semitism, when much of the world turns their backs on Israel and the Jews. ... The book's simple message may be what is needed to open the eyes of the Church to what Christianity owes to the Jews: gratitude, love, and the knowledge of their Jewish Messiah as the true Passover Lamb"--Back cover

5 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 1991 in English and Korean and held by 80 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
