Compilados e escritos por um dos maiores pensadores modernos do cristianismo, este livro dá ênfase às passagens bíblicas sobre as doutrinas centrais do cristianismo — como a Criação, o pecado do homem e a graça divina, a pessoa e obra de Cristo, os acontecimentos futuros — e explica com brevidade como cada passagem apoia o ensino bíblico sobre cada tema. Todas as informações se encontram ali. Estabelecidas de forma simples. Assim você pode ver por si mesmo o que a Bíblia diz — nas palavras do próprio Deus.
Este livro também inclui “Dois conteúdos, duas realidades”, o ensaio de Schaeffer sobre as quatro coisas que o cristão precisa fazer para causar impacto na geração atual. Juntas, essas duas obras servem para mostrar a coerência e credibilidade das Escrituras e sua relevância para as questões críticas da vida.
"A Arte e a Bíblia" é uma obra fundamental para cristãos atuantes no mundo das artes. Neste clássico, Schaeffer examina o registro escritural da utilização de várias formas artísticas e estabelece uma perspectiva cristã sobre a arte. Com clareza e vigor, ele explica por que "o cristão é alguém cuja imaginação deve voar além das estrelas".
Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer, a theologian with a deep interest in the arts, shows how the Bible records the use of various art forms in the Old Testament times. Then, turning to the contemporary scene, he suggests eleven perspectives within which a Christian view of art can take shape.
For the Christian the arts can be a source of joy, a symbol of the creativity that marks the mannishness of man, man himself being made in the image of God the creator. For the Christian artist the sky is not the limit. Because he can distinguish between reality and illusion, he is the one whose imagination can "fly beyond the stars."

Truth used to be based on reason. No more. What we feel is now the truest source of reality. Despite our obsession with the emotive and the experiential, we still face anxiety, despair, and purposelessness.
How did we get here? And where do we find a remedy?
In this modern classic, Francis A. Schaeffer traces trends in twentieth-century thought and unpacks how key ideas have shaped our society. Wide-ranging in his analysis, Schaeffer examines philosophy, science, art and popular culture to identify dualism, fragmentation and the decline of reason.
Schaeffer's work takes on a newfound relevance today in his prescient anticipation of the contemporary postmodern ethos. His critique demonstrates Christianity's promise for a new century, one in as much need as ever of purpose and hope.
- Does God exist?
- Does it make sense to believe in God?
- Can we ever know God?
From the intriguing, late-night discussions at L’Abri came a series of compelling books from Francis Schaeffer—The God Who Is There, Escape from Reason, True Spirituality, and this classic book every Christian should own, He Is There and He Is Not Silent.
As one of the foremost evangelical thinkers of the twentieth century, Francis Schaeffer long pondered the fate of declining Western culture. In this brilliant book he analyzed the reasons for modern society's state of affairs and presented the only viable alternative: living by the Christian ethic, acceptance of God's revelation, and total affirmation of the Bible's morals, values, and meaning.
Christians serving the Lord can fall into two traps: depending too heavily on their own power or underestimating their God-given purpose. In this collection of classic sermons, renowned theologian and philosopher Francis A. Schaeffer teaches believers how to rely on the Holy Spirit—not personal effort or status—in matters of service and leadership.
This short book includes an excerpt from Schaeffer’s sermon, “The Lord’s Work in the Lord’s Way,” plus 2 sermons from the book No Little People. Covering topics including humility and servanthood, Christian office, spiritual battles, and trusting God’s methods, Schaeffer encourages pastors, students, and church members to live as consecrated people, working humbly for God’s approval instead of human praise.
Francis Schaeffer’s Classic Analysis of the Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture
Civilizations throughout history have built societies around their own limited value systems including rulers, finite gods, or relativism—only to fail. The absence of a Christian foundation eventually leads to breakdown, and those signs are visible in present-day culture as well. Can modern society avoid the same fate?
In this latest edition of How Should We Then Live?, theologian Francis A. Schaeffer traces the decline of Western culture from the fall of Rome, through the Middle Ages and the Enlightenment, and up to the twentieth century. Studying humanism’s impact on philosophy, science, and religion, he shows how this worldview historically results in apathy, chaos, and decline. Schaeffer’s important work calls on readers to live instead by Christian ethics, placing their trust in the infinite personal God of the Bible. Originally written in 1976, How Should We Then Live? remains remarkably applicable today.
A Classic Work on the Christian Response to Today’s Ecological Crisis
From the time of creation, God placed the earth in our care. Since then, humans have had a strained relationship with the ecosystem. We have often misused resources and polluted the water, air, and land. But if God’s plan for redemption includes the earth, we must be good stewards of his creation now. With environmental threats increasing, how should Christians respond?
This classic work by Francis A. Schaeffer looks at modern ecological crises through the lens of theology and Scripture. Renowned for his work in applied philosophy and theology, Schaeffer answers serious philosophical questions about creation and ecology. He concludes that we must return to a profoundly and radically biblical understanding of God’s relationship to the earth, and of our divine mandate to exercise godly dominion over it.
