In 1955 an American family moved into a chalet on the side of a steep Swiss alp. They did not know exactly why God had brought them there, what He wanted them to do, or even where the money to live on would come from. But He began opening doors, and people with questions about life's meaning began finding the way to their home.
Edith Schaeffer, wife of Dr. Francis Schaeffer, tells the remarkable story of how God led them step by step, as that one small chalet grew into a whole community. It took the name L'Abri (French for shelter). Day by day, God faithfully provided for their family, and eventually for the entire community.
The Schaeffers believed that truth must be demonstrated as well as debated. They wanted to show the world through the transformed lifestyle of a believing community that the personal-infinite God is really here in our generation. In a society losing the ability to distinguish between Christian and non-Christian values, truth and untruth, good and evil, L'Abri equipped people to make that distinction.
For more than thirty years, people have come to L'Abri from all walks of life and from many countries, searching for truth and reality. There they find someone who cares for them personally, who listens carefully to their questions, and who gives them answers based on an uncompromising commitment to Biblical truth. L'Abri now has branches in several other countries and has affected the lives of literally thousands of people around the world.

This book will give renewed strength for any believer and cause the unbeliever to think hard. You can see all of the ways that this family entered into troubled times and trusted God. God always provided for them in all ways. Whether you need a new perspective, want a faith booster, or just love to hear how the Lord "works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28), this book is an amazing testament to the love of God.Was this review helpful?

This book is a real life story of two people who sought God's will in their lives. It is an exciting an inspirational read and will make you want to follow their example. It goes perfectly with the workbook, 'Experiencing God' by Henry Blackaby and Claude King, as a practical application of their principles (applied 30 years before their workbooks). It also outlines basic principles of 'Christianity is Jewish' by the same author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
