How should we then live? : the rise and decline of Western thought and culture by Francis A Schaeffer( Book )

45 editions published between 1976 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the foremost evangelical thinkers of the twentieth century, Francis Schaeffer long pondered the fate of declining Western culture.

A Christian manifesto by Francis A Schaeffer( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 2021 in 4 languages and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It happened so subtly that few people noticed at first. Little by little, morality and freedom started to crumble. It came first in government, in education, in the media -- and finally it began to shake our families and our own lives. The author shows why this has happened. First, he shows how we have failed to understand the problem -- to see that the whole foundation for society has shifted radically from its original Judeo-Christian basis to a humanistic basis. Second, he calls for a massive movement -- in government, law and all of life -- to reestablish the Judeo-Christian foundation and turn the tide of moral decadence and loss of freedom
Escape from reason by Francis A Schaeffer( Book )

41 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Man is dead. God is dead. Life has become meaningless existence, man a cog in a machine. The only way of escape lies in a non-rational fantasy world of experience, drugs, absurdity, pornography, an elusive 'final experience', madness ... If this is the twentieth-century mentality, how did it come about? And how can the Christian faith be made meaningful today? In this highly original book Dr. Schaeffer traces the way in which art and philosophy have reflected the dualism in Western thinking introduced at the time of the Renaissance. Today this dualism is expressed in a despair of rationality and an escape into a non-rational world which alone offers hope. It is shown in literature, art and music, theatre and cinema, television and popular culture

We find the answers we need to restore the dignity and sanctity of every stage of life

The church at the end of the 20th century by Francis A Schaeffer( Book )

32 editions published between 1970 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western culture is dying. Is the Western church dying too? Is it too late for the church to overcome the pressures that threaten its existence? Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer provides some tough-minded answers as he takes a long, hard look at the church at the end of the twentieth century. His analysis takes him into the political arena where he considers the New Left and the Establishment, both of which constitute a threat to freedom. Dr. Schaeffer also sees the church under the pressures of the ecological crisis, the biological bomb, the loss of the concept of truth, the population explosion, and the manipulation of the common man by scientists, artists and mass-media experts. When he turns his attention to the institutional church, Dr. Schaeffer presents a classic analysis of form and freedom, setting forth a solid basis for genuinely biblical Christian communities. Finally, he plots a program of individual as well as institutional reform - reform that will produce revolutionary Christianity. -- cover

12 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joshua walked onto the pages of history at a crucial moment. God had promised centuries earlier that Abraham's children would inhabit the land of Canaan. Subsequently, God had led Abraham's descendants out of Egypt with a mighty hand and had given them his law at Sinai. When Joshua assumed leadership, the people of God were standing on the east side of the Jordan River, ready to take the land. How did the people of God understand their relation to God? How did they conquer the promised land? What impact did they have on later generations? Dr. Schaefer expounds the book of Joshua, highlights its characters and events, points out how it links together the rest of Scripture and reveals the unchanging realities of God's ways with men. - Back cover
