Francis August Schaeffer (January 30, 1912 – May 15, 1984) was an American Evangelical Christian theologian, philosopher, and Presbyterian pastor. He is best known for establishing the L'Abri community in Switzerland. Opposed to theological modernism, Schaeffer promoted a more historic Protestant faith and a presuppositional approach to Christian apologetics, which he believed would answer the questions of the age.

I enjoyed Dr. Schaeffer's work on Christian and non-Christian thought in the political and moral realm. One major point to know is that this is a very quick read and is not heavy. With that said, do not expect him to expound in great detail each view and argument. He makes stronger cases in How Then Shall We Live? Despite the small nature, this book is like the prime rib. Francis knows how to make his point quickly and logically.

Each chapter in this book follows from the preceding. He has no problem showing the philosophical problems of the materialist world view and how it compares to the Christian world view. This book contains a bit of history, morality, and call to action for Christians to be salt and light in a fading world. I see this book as a being a resource of continued relevance for ages to come.

I was surprised that this book was still in print as it was written in 1980-81.

Although it is dated, it's still relevant for Christians such as I as to how we should live in a pagan culture...

Francis Schaeffer was always a deep thinker who challenged the "status quo" of church thought...

I'm glad that I was able to find this book that I had read back in the '80's !

Written 30+ years and even more relevant to today. Highly recommend this book to believers in God and those who don't. Religion WAS a Vital, Inclusive Part of America's Foundation. America was founded of Freedom OF Religion, NOT Freedom FROM Religion. The moral decay of our country is fueled by the removal of religious attributes from society. Rev. Schaeffer was Right On in is Manifesto.

The Communists put out a manifesto, the Humanists have published two. There is one Christian Manifesto, The Lordship of Jesus Christ over all of life. This wonderful book gives understanding and clarity in the world of today about how to life that manifesto.
To the person who seeks for purpose and direction this is a great book to include in your reading.

Another top-notch book by Schaeffer and it's an old one, but it is still flying out of the park; leastwise, in my estimation. This book makes you still and reconsider some of your priorities over again and reflect upon what personal changes you may want to make with your thinking. Dahk Knox

An incredible book that I first read back in eighth grade, A Christian Manifesto is Schaeffer's examination of the conflict between the Christian worldview versus the humanistic worldview as it plays out in law and government. It is that shift in worldview which Schaeffer identifies as the fundamental issue in our culture today - and the fact that far too many Christians are fighting this war on various battlefronts, missing the totality of the conflict in which they are ultimately engaged! The battle, according to Schaeffer, is a conflict over Truth, whether there is a comprehensive and absolute Truth about all reality or not.

Schaeffer does an excellent job of reviewing human history and demonstrating clearly and convincingly that Christians have in almost every generation and every culture been at the heart of this continuous battle for truth. Setting the stage from the Protestant Reformation, Schaeffer then turns to the uniqueness of the legal and governmental status found in the United States - a government established on the principle that God supersedes law and that law supersedes man. But, warns Schaeffer, that uniqueness has been slowly eroded away by the humanist worldview and its invasion of the public policy arena with the fallacy that the state is supreme in the absence of the existence of God.

Schaeffer encourages Christians to be an active presence in the political process - and warns that when the state violates the liberties granted by God, civil disobedience is not only an option, but a commandment as well - to submit to an authority in clear violation of Biblical principles is not an option for a follower of Christ - "citizens have a moral obligation to resist unjust and tyrannical government," he writes.

Looking at the United States in the early 1980s, Schaeffer sees a window of opportunity for Christians to make their presence felt in the process, but warns that this window is slowly closing. Schaeffer uses the issue of abortion as his example of an issue where Christians must be a part of the solution, and gives various strategies that can be employed to make a difference in the culture on this particular travesty of humanistic reasoning.

A Christian Manifesto is a great read, especially for a Christian who wants to engage their culture for Christ in the public policy arena. Schaeffer's reasoning is solid, challenging and relevant even today!

One of the classics every Christian needs to read. It's crazy to see the clarity Schaeffer had over 30 years ago on the things we are dealing with today.
This book is a marvelous work!! I read it many years ago and ordered it so that I could read it again and add it to my library. Frances Schaeffer is an awesome author and does such a great job in responding to the secular humanism diatribe 'The Human Manifesto.' This book explains and confirms for me how christianity is applicable in our personal lives and in today's society. I encourage anyone to read it and be encouraged in your faith.
