Does believing in Jesus really make a difference? Can God really change lives?
After serving as a pastor for over a decade, Francis Schaeffer—founder of L’Abri Fellowship—found himself wrestling with deeply perplexing questions like these. He was tired of not seeing results in his own spiritual life and others’. He found himself talking about Christianity, but not living it. So, as a pastor, he decided to “start at the beginning”—go back to agnosticism—and reexamine his Christian faith. “Did Christianity really make any difference in my life?”
True Spirituality is the result of Schaeffer’s honest search for answers. When the book was published thirty years ago, it shook the Christian world. Young people flocked to L’Abri, his spiritual retreat center in the Swiss Alps. Today, it’s a classic book on understanding what real Christianity is all about—what it means to follow Jesus moment by moment.
Foreword by Chuck Colson, author of How Now Shall We Live, founder of Prison Fellowship, and speaker on the popular radio broadcast Breakpoint. Introduction by Dr. Jerram Barrs, Resident Scholar at the Francis Schaeffer Institute and author of Who Are the Peacemakers? and Building Bridges to the Gospel.
