Christians have not always presented an inviting picture to the world. Too often we have failed to show the beauty of authentic Christian love. And the world has disregarded Christianity as a result. In our era of global violence and sectarian intolerance, the church needs to hear anew the challenge of this book.
Decades ago Francis Schaeffer exhorted, "Love - and the unity it attests to - is the mark Christ gave Christians to wear before the world. Only with this mark may the world know that Christians are indeed Christians and that Jesus was sent by the Father." More than ever, the church needs to respond compassionately to a needy world. More than ever, we need to show the Mark.

Great classic writing and incredibly practical for today! I particularly enjoyed the thoughtfulness of love and truth and the balance between the two.
in this book Schaeffer reminds us of Christ's instruction that the world will know we are his by our love for one another, and the need to follow that command even amidst theological differences. this book is a very good reminder to love other Christians, and Robertson Dean has a great audiobook voice
