A special thirtieth anniversary commemorative edition of True Spirituality, featuring a new foreword by Chuck Colson and an introduction by Dr. Jerram Barrs, director of the Schaeffer Institute, is a treasure trove of wisdom for Christians trying to discover what true spirituality looks like in everyday life.
- The late Schaeffer, who rose to...
The late Schaeffer, who rose to prominence in the 1970s, is regarded as a theologian or even a philosopher, although he regarded himself as an evangelist. He wrote this work as a result of his frustration with his own lack of spiritual progress--specifically, not being able to "walk the talk." Spurred by this personal crisis, he went back to the beginning, to agnosticism, and reexamined his faith in Christ. This work, a confession almost, is a practical examination of how to live the Christian life with integrity in the face of modernity, materialism, and, as Schaeffer puts it, "dead orthodoxy." Grover Gardner narrates with deceptive ease. He reads with a sense of humility--maintaining a low-key and conversational tone. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine

I have been a Christian since 1973 and have slipped away over the last 10 years. I wish I had read this book in 73. I am back now and hope to live out the remainder of my life in true spirituatlity. Thank You Jesus.
