This collection bundles two of popular author Francis A. Schaeffer’s spirituality classics into one e-book for a great value!

True Spirituality
Francis Shaeffer had been serving as a pastor for over a decade when he began to wonder if Christianity really made a difference in people’s lives. True Spirituality, a twentieth-century spiritual classic, outlines the result of his effort to “start at the beginning” and re-examine his faith. The book is a treasure trove of wisdom for Christians trying to discover what true spirituality looks like in everyday life. Includes a foreword by Chuck Colson and an introduction by Dr. Jerram Barrs, director of the Schaeffer Institute.

He Is There and He Is Not Silent
In He Is There and He Is Not Silent, Francis Schaeffer—philosopher, popular speaker, and founder of L’Abri Fellowship in the Swiss Alps—addresses some of the most perplexing questions to believers and unbelievers alike:Does God exist?Does it make sense to believe in God?Can we ever know God?During his life, Francis Schaeffer welcomed questioners and doubters from all walks of life to L’Abri Fellowship. For Schaeffer, Christianity expressed the ultimate truth. That is why he never shunned doubts and questions by honest seekers. He knew the truths in the Bible would always prove themselves when they were thoroughly investigated by an open mind and heart.

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.
