Schaeffer: "The Lord's Work in the Lord's Way"

Today is the 25th anniversary of Francis Schaeffer's death.

Crossway has posted online Schaeffer's sermon, The Lord's Work in the Lord's Way, from the book No Little People.

Lane Dennis, President and Publisher at Crossway, explains how this teaching by Schaeffer in particular has had a profound effect on the vision of Crossway.

One other thing to note: I saw today on Amazon that Schaeffer's video series How Should We Then Live? became available earlier this year as a 2-DVD set. Here's the description:
This is Dr. Francis Schaeffer's spectacular series on the rise and decline of Western culture from a Christian perspective. The series presents profound truths in simple language and concludes that man's only hope is a return to God's Biblical absolute -- the Truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures. Each 30-minute episode focuses on a significant era of history while presenting answers to modern problems:
  • The Roman Age
  • The Middle Ages
  • The Renaissance
  • The Reformation
  • The Revolutionary Age
  • The Scientific Age
  • The Age of Non-reason
  • The Age of Fragmentation
  • The Age of Personal Peace & Affluence
  • Final Choices

This special edition includes an intimate in-depth interview with Francis and Edith Schaeffer (in two parts) as well as a 10-week study guide in PDF.
