Believing that the wisdom and common sense set forth in Scripture can be aplied to the most troubling issues of daily life, Edith Schaeffer supplies straight answers to perplexing questions.

* What does it mean to live realizing that all of life is to have a spiritual element?

* How can we be compassionate to those in doubt and need, while at the same time dealing with the ups and downs of our own lives?

* What can we do to help each other be alert to the issues and temptations that affect our culture today?

"What is common sense Christian living? It encompasses the whole of life, from childhood to old age ..." says Schaeffer. "It is a life wherein we are to have responsibility for a certain portion of history and geography during our own lifetime in whatever God has for us to say, or do."

Writing with the wisdom of a mature Christian woman with a gift for emphathetic communication, Schaeffer helps make sense of what often is a senseless world.

A completely consecrated life is detailed here. A pastor and his wife show the way to make choices based on your foundation in God. This book goes hand in hand with Francis Schaeffer's biography: one perspective is from the man's side and this book from the woman's side. What we see is harmony, dedication to a common cause.

For decades I have been reading Mr Schaeffer's works, following L'Abri worldwide. This book provides some of that history. A very necessary volume for the 20th Century.

Very practical book... and applicable even though it was written a long time ago. It would be worth buying just for the section on Mrs. Schaeffer's experience with serving. This is a book of practical wisdom.

In a time when we've lost a true sense of direction, here's a woman who took her direction straight out of the book of wisdom written by the God who created each of us! Who better to look to for advice that the author of our very lives?!! Well Edith Schaeffer has read words of truth from the Bible, sought the heart of God on a daily basis for her life, the lives of her children, husband, and thousands they took into their mountain chalet in Switzerland as they sought answers to life's most perplexing questions. She learned, she lived, she loved, she shared, she taught, and here she shares. YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS this UNBELIEVABLE WISDOM FOR YOUR LIFE TODAY :-)
