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.
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.

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.
