Overview

Francis Schaeffer defined revival as a: “A return to the practice of Biblical Christianity in the power of the Holy Spirit.” During his ministry, supported faithfully by his wife, Edith, they experienced revival in their personal lives and among the people with whom they ministered and worked. Those who practiced their teachings from the Scriptures also experienced revival and spread that revival to their own families and churches. Edith first wrote L’Abri, about their work in Switzerland, and later wrote their autobiography, The Tapestry. Her two books, and this introduction to their life and work, show how God worked to enlighten and transform a whole generation of Christians. Francis and Edith Schaeffer were Christian missionaries who challenged a world of skeptical people to rethink their beliefs. This Expanded and Updated Edition Francis and Edith Schaeffer includes revisions, revised chapters from Francis Schaeffer: the Man and His Message (also written by L.G. Parkhurst, Jr.), and new material; see especially, “Lessons from Their Lives of Faith” In this short biography, you will be introduced to Francis and Edith Schaeffer and encouraged to learn more about them and their work by reading their books and discussing with others.
When I wrote Francis Schaeffer: The Man and His Message, I followed a book design pioneered by others. I equally divided the book between a glimpse of Francis Schaeffer’s life in the first half of the book and his teaching in the second half of the book. My goal was to reach those who had never heard of Francis and Edith Schaeffer or L’Abri, the kind of people that I had ministered to prior to my meeting the Schaeffers, the kind of people raised under theological liberalism who were lost and seeking the truth as I once was prior to meeting the Schaeffers. In some sense, the book is a fine introduction for the average lay person or unbeliever who has never heard of the Schaeffers. First published by Tyndale House Publishers, Francis Schaeffer: The Man and His Message has been out of print for many years, so I have revised His Message and have included it here following the Francis and Edith Schaeffer biography. The Expanded and Updated Edition ebook format makes this new expanded edition possible and easily available to people all around the world. May this book lead to revival as defined by Francis Schaeffer in the hearts of all who read it.

    Now An Expanded and Updated Nook Edition

    In September 2012, I published this revised and expanded Nook edition of this book. This expanded edition contains a revised and expanded "Message" section from my first biography on Francis Schaeffer; which was, Francis Schaeffer: the Man and His Message.

    This expanded edition also includes a section on 10 of the lessons I learned from Francis and Edith Schaeffer.

    These 10 lessons are:

    Lesson 1. Teach the Truth in Love

    Lesson 2. There is Only One Reason to be a Christian

    Lesson 3. The Bible is True in All that it Affirms

    Lesson 4. Go First to Establish a Bible-Believing Church and Second a Denominational Church

    Lesson 5. A Church Without Discipline or the Ability to Discipline Ceases to be a Church

    Lesson 6. God is Not Mechanical, but Personal. God is the Infinite/Personal God

    Lesson 7. No One Becomes a Christian Apart From the Work of the Holy Spirit

    Lesson 8. Pray for the People of the Lord’s Choice to Come, Pray for Him to Keep the Others Away. Pray for the Lord to Meet Your Needs Without Asking for Money

    Lesson 9. If Your Choice is Between Perfection and Nothing, You Will Always Have Nothing. Do Not Expect a Perfect Church, Pastor, Elder, People, Thing, or Situation in This Fallen World in Which We Live

    Lesson 10. “God Calls Some to Leave, and Some to Stay, and I Am Not The Holy Spirit.”

    If you are interested in learning more about prayer from their lives and teaching, you might be interested in: How God Teaches Us to Pray: Lessons from the Lives of Francis and Edith Schaeffer, which is also a Nook Edition.

    I hope you will find this information helpful. This seemed to be the best place to use to inform readers interested in Francis and Edith Schaeffer. L.G. Parkhurst, Jr.
