Publisher's Summary

In He Is There and He Is Not Silent, Francis Schaeffer - philosopher, popular speaker, and founder of L'Abri Fellowship in the Swiss Alps - addresses some of the most perplexing questions to believers and unbelievers alike:

  • Does God Exist?
  • Does it make Sense to believe in God?
  • Can we ever Know God?

    During his life, Francis Schaeffer welcomed questioners and doubters from all walks of life to L'Abri Fellowship. For Schaeffer, Christianity expressed the ultimate truth. That is why he never shunned doubts and questions by honest seekers. He knew the truths in the Bible would always prove themselves when they were thoroughly investigated by an open mind and heart.

    From the intriguing late night discussions at L'Abri came a series of compelling books that every Christian should own, especially this classic, He Is There and He Is Not Silent.

    Good message with the wrong narrator.

    I just finished listening to "True Spirituality: How To Live for Jesus from Moment to Moment" which was read by Grover Gardner. I have listened to it twice, as both the message and the narrator were wonderful beyond words. I decided to buy this book because I want to hear all the F.A. Schaeffer material, and have listened to three chapters so far. And my sense of this experience is that even though the narrator is a good reader, SHE is all wrong for this book. First of all, a man reading this work would have been consistent with the material.(My choice would be G. Gardner.) I haven't really enjoyed listening to a woman who doesn't have the depth and quality of voice which this book needs. It is more difficult material than "True Spirituality," and, therefore, really needs the narrator to help in understanding the content. I'll finish the book and listen to it again, but not with the same pleasure that other books have given.

    Eye opening

    Listened and shared with several friends. It gives language and a reasonable approach to many questions I had, so I was excited during the reading. I'm excited to listen again and pick up things I may have missed the first time, since I was so focused on anticipating where he was going. A recommend it for people looking for or looking to explain how to evaluate what they believe against what someone else may believe in rational terms.

    great phil. defense of Christian presuppositions

    this is my favorite book by Schaeffer that I've listened to thus far. here he reasons with the head, rather than speaking to the heart as in "true spirituality". this is a great book for anyone asking the big epistemological questions, regardless of if they are Christian or not.

    Great for those interested in philosophy

    A wonderful job showing how the Christian faith not only gives an answer to the great metaphysical, epistemological, and ethical questions but is the only sufficient answer.

    Wow! Listen to this book.

    Every person should read this book, especially if you don't believe in God. Put on your thinking cap. Ready? Go.

    brilliant

    Such a well written and well reasoned book that will give believers the tools for a logical argument for God in an ever increasingly materialist world.

    yeah no

    the most condescending book I have ever read. I thought that Nietzsche was bad with die Herde and all, but no, Schaeffer is more of an asshole
