How to live the Christian life in the 21st century  Mar 23, 2007
I have read, and reread this book many times over the last few years. It has done more to influence my life, than any Christian book other than my bible. It is kind of funny but many people who have not read much of Schaeffer, think his book "How Shall We Then Live", is about living the Christian life; it is not. True Spirituality, is that book, and it is excellent. He wrote this should have been his first book, because without the lessons learned, there never would have been a L'Abri community in Switzerland; it was pivotal in launching his ministry. But I am thankful it was written later in his life, because the wealth of both his knowledge and Christian experience drips off of every page. This is not a book to be skimmed; it is a book to be studied. If you have ever been frustrated trying to live the Christian life, if you have began to think it is a futile attempt, if you want to learn to live in the "newness of life", then study this book.
LITERAL  Jan 9, 2007
Be warned when buying this book that Schaeffer follows an incredibly literal reading of the scripture. While he is often insightful about the Biblical passages in discussion, he editorializes them heavily, superimposing on them the meaning he wishes to find without regard to whether that meaning was implied in the first place.

The book also appears to have been written to combat the arising of certain liberal theologies in the 1970s. I'm not sure exactly what they were, and Schaeffer never quite gets around to telling us; he just repetitively emphasizes over and over again the points that he is making and assumes that the audience is both familiar with and indoctrinated in whatever approach it is he is attempting to counter.

Schaeffer also uses "spirituality" in a sense that is very different from that to which I am accustomed. When I think of Christian spirituality I think of the reverently meditative approach of Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Ronald Rolheiser, etc. "Reverent" is hardly applicable to Schaeffer's book as it is unfortunately written in a very belligerent and aggressive style.

If you're interested in Christian spirituality, I would suggest the works of Henri Nouwen instead...especially "REturn o the Prodigal Son" and "The
Dance of Life."
wonderful spirituality  Jan 6, 2007
This book as all Schaeffer's books are,is well thought out showing his grasp of the subject
Great book for Christian growth  Sep 12, 2006
I have read True Spirituality and found that it truly challenged me in my faith and how I live my life. This is not light reading, but reading to change one's soul and how you live a Christian life. It does not contain quick easy help steps, but rather your understanding of theology, who we are in Christ and what Christ has done for you. This is a book I believe anyone who takes his/her relationship with Christ seriously should own and read.
**Beautiful Book**  Jun 13, 2006
This is a beautiful book. I have read it more times than I can remember. I just recently ordered yet another copy to give to a friend of mine.

This book will make you reconsider a lot of your previously held assumptions, and help you to evaluate your spiritual walk.

I highly recommend anything by Schaeffer. This book especially.
