Overview

Today the pressures and battles Schaeffer predicted have engulfed the evangelical church. They come from the moral decay of the surrounding world. They come from the conflict between Christian principles and political ideologies. They come from the growing compromise morally and theologically within the church and among evangelicals in particular. Dr. Schaeffer's insights, republished here, have crucial significance in helping Christians to understand and confront these battles.

"Does the church have a future in our generation?" Schaeffer's answer challenges every Christian to examine his or her life for a reality rooted in a personal relationship to Jesus Christ and lived out in an orthodoxy of doctrine, Christian compassion, and true community.
