Schaeffer never ceases to fail to bring God's word into our hearts. Through these sermons, given at the L'Abri chapel, and throughout Europe, and many other countries, are messages for the twentieth century----and now. With God, there are no little people.

The focus: 1) Humbled leaders----where Schaffer says, "if in any of our relationships of life we demand perfection or nothing, we will have nothing." 2) A personal God 3) Sweeping away modernism to find Gods truth----and he says here, "the Christian must always say, 'I want the state and society to have its proper place. But if it tries to come into the center of my life, I am against it because Jesus only is there'." 4) Workings of the Holy Spirit 5) Humanism 6) Joseph 7) OT tabernacle 8) David----good and bad 9) Elijah/Elisha----great and minor prophet 10) Christ rescuing the three men from the furnace 11) The Christmas story 12) Jesus----centered on Him 13) Christ----the water of life 14) Revelation----in brief 15) The true God, and finally 16) Materialism----where is your treasure----where he discusses the traps that we Christians can fall into, what he calls "practical materialism": "We all tend to live 'ash heap lives'; we spend most of our time and money for things that will end up in the city dump." And, "Let me say with tears that as far as material possessions, time, energy, and talents are concerned, all too many Bible-believing Christians live as though their entire existence is limited to this side of the grave."

to eat, to breathe
to beget
Is this all there is
Chance configuration of atom against atom
of god against god
I cannot believe it.
Come, Christian Triune God who lives,
Here am I
Shake the world again.

"No Little People" is one of the first Kindle freebies I got. I've had it for a while; almost two years. I finally got around to reading it.

Many of the people who have influenced me were in turn influenced by Francis Schaeffer in a previous generation. Unfortunately, Christianity seems to externally manifest in the silly little displays (often verbal) of piety from it's members and adherents. This drives many others to frustration and often away from the church. It keeps people out.

Francis Schaeffer seemed able to cut through all that get to the heart of the matter. He ministered to the generation of the 60's and 70's. Many in that generation credit Schaeffer with bringing them back to what really mattered about the faith. Schaeffer himself was almost driven away from Christianity when he realized how much meanness and infighting happened within his own denomination. What he witnessed in the actions of others contradicted the way the Bible says to act and to serve. As he says in his book "True Spirituality", he went back to his agnosticism and looked at the claims of the Bible through as much of an original lens as possible, unpolluted by his experiences as an ordained minister within a once-great denomination. "True Spirituality" details that journey of his. I'll review that book separately.

The Premise of "No Little People" is "With God, there are no little people!" A statement from the Introduction (written by Udo W. Middelmann) says:

"While all religious and secular standards judge a person by his or her accomplishments toward the end of life, the God of the Bible gives value to the person from the beginning. Man not only becomes someone but is a person from conception on, forever.

This is truly a good read. It is what I have personally come to expect from Francis Schaeffer. It is a bit disjointed, but that is because that is what it is intended to be (a collection of different sermons).

It essentially hinges on the idea that with God "there are no little people or little places".

I found it interesting, inspiring, and a worthwhile read.

I love this book - especially the first chapter. I have used examples and teachings from the first chapter of this book to encourage many depressed Christians, and it has completely encouraged me as well.

Great book! Francis Schaeffer is the most intellectual mind regarding the Bible and it's meaning. I would recommend reading any of this works if you are wanting to grow in grace and knowledge of God's Word.

A thoughtful collection of wisdom from God's Word on culture, people and eternity. Regardless of your faith or lack there of, Schaeffer will challenge you to think.
