Is there a God? For centuries, man has searched for an answer. As one of the brightest and most influential Christian philosopher and evangelist of this century, Schaeffer presents an encyclopedic account of the answers offered by western philosophers and theologians from the time of Plato to the humanistic and existential movements of this century. On the basis of that analysis alone, this book is worth its weight in gold. But Schaeffer takes us one step further. He offers, not just the best, but the only viable answer to the ultimate question. God is truly there - real and personal.
But how can anyone know Him? Because the God who is there has revealed Himself ...

Format: Paperback
A great compendium of 20th century thought as viewed through orthodox Christian eyes. Schaeffer traces what he calls the Line Of Despair which begins with Philosophy and extends through Art, General Culture, Music and eventually Theology. He shows how the "Line Of Despair" is the direct result of dethroning God and demonstrates the consequeces of the proclaimation, "God is Dead." As a Christian, this book really challenged me to treat the unbeliever with great love and sincerity and to present the Gospel in a relatable, non-Christian cliched manner.

Lots of people are prepared to read and accept at face value the views of Richard Dawkins and similar - because they're fashionable at present. Before deciding you need to read the respected people on the other side of the debate. Although it's been around a while, this is a seminal work and was one of the books that really helped shape my thinking as a student. It's good to own a copy again!

I first read this [along with Escape from Reason; He is There and He is not Silent, and Death in the City] some 40 years ago. Re-reading it has highlighted just how much Francis Schaeffer has influenced my thinking, evangelism and teaching for four decades.
The breadth and depth of coverage of what he addresses is stunning.
He is a evangelical who is conservative in his thinking and this (clearly) will not suit everyone, BUT I would plead for anyone to read this with a willingness to have their thinking challenged and not to kick what he says into the long grass before weighing CAREFULLY what he says.
I have been refreshed by re-reading The God Who is There; and again challenged to engage with where people are at today and to reach out in my communication in ways that give them a chance of hearing what I am saying - and for me to hear what they are saying - rather than speaking in concepts and language that is easier for me (and behind which I am tempted to hide because it feels safer!).
Go on - be challenged!
