    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Different, welcomed taste of Schaeffer

    Francis Schaeffer does an excellent job with this book. Spirituality is not demonstrated as emotional, feel-good type of an experience in this book, and rightfully so. It describes spirituality in a much more Biblical way: moment-by-moment living in the Spirit's power according to the new nature you have been given that is freed from the bonds of sin. His step by step process through this hard concept is heavy but very welcomed. This book is a great resource for the Christian who is struggling with continual growth in their walk.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    New Life

    Francis Schaeffer challenges the seasoned saint with spiritual insight that makes one feel he has only begun the journey; even if you have been a christian for 30 years. The book was written by Schaeffer when he experienced his own crisis with "religion". True Spirtuality needs to be a yearly read.

    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Foundational Schaeffer...good read

    Schaeffer wrote this book later in his life, but always said that to properly understand his message, this is the book that people ought to read first. In True Spirituality, Schaeffer lays out the foundation for the Christian life - dead to self, alive to Christ. Once a person understands that they are, by faith in Christ, freed from the penalty and power of sin, they can walk in a manner worthy of their calling as they battle to live free from the presence of sin as well. But that sanctification process doesn't begin without justification first, without a surrendering to the will of God our own personal will so that our will now becomes to live out the very will of God - or, better yet, to allow God to live out His will in our lives.

    The book is classic Schaeffer and one can hear the seedlings of many of his other messages/books which grew from this spiritual foundation. True Spirituality is not an easy read, Schaeffer is wrestling with difficult theological issues and he packs quite a lot of stuff into a 150-page book...but it is well worth the investment of time and energy and should be a must-read for almost every Christian. The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee is another book in this same genre, which personally I liked much better than even Schaeffer's book, but both are excellent works and foundational to the Christian walk and worldview.
