It happened so subtly that few people noticed at first. Little by little, morality and freedom started to crumble. It came first in government, in education, in the media--and finally it began to shake our families and our own lives. Something fundamental has changed. Law and government no longer provide a foundation of justice and morality but have become the means of licensing moral perversions of all kinds. Education has become the enemy of religious truth and values. And the media have provided the means for propagating the change. In this explosive book, Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer shows why this has happened. First, he shows how we have failed to understand the problem--to see that the whole foundation for society has shifted radically from its original Judeo-Christian heritage. Second, Dr. Schaeffer calls for a massive movement--in government, law and all of life--to reestablish the Judeo-Christian foundation and turn the tide of moral decadence and loss of freedom. "A Christian Manifesto is literally a call for Christians to change the course of history--by returning to biblical Truth and by allowing Christ to be Lord in all of life. To do this, Schaeffer says, will involve a head-on confrontation with the false view that material or energy, shaped by chance, is the final reality. Schaeffer's provocative conclusion is that when the state directly defies the absolute law of God, its authority becomes illegitimate. In this case, the Christian is bound to resist the state by whatever means necessary--through direct legal and political action, and possibly through massive demonstrations of civil disobedience.… (más)

I read this book as a college student in the 1980s, and I appreciate it much more in 2020. I wish I felt as new, untarnished, and unjaded as I was in my late teens. However, I would not trade the lessons learned. A Christian Manifesto is still a good book and worth the read. ( )

Of all the books, Mr. Schaeffer has written, this would probably be in need of a rewrite as some of the materials he presented left much to be desired. I do appreciate some of his points but it is a bit dangerous to make indefensible statements like refusing to pay taxes (see Matthew 17:24-27) as Jesus reminds us that the world has no understanding of the realities of God's kingdom. Understand that there are serious flaws with some of the theology he presents which is unlike his other works. His other works are much better than this one yet still a good read ( )

"A Christian Manifesto" was inspiring to me in that it motivated me to be more involved and engaged with society not only in an evangelistic way but also in regard to social justice. Our church has jumped on the "social justice" bandwagon and I love it. I think all churches should fight for what is right and help protect those that cannot protect themselves. Something Francis Schaeffer espouses in this great book. ( )

I have had other Francis Schaeffer books recommended to me, but I never really got into any of them. A couple of weeks ago I read an excerpt from A Christian Manifesto and was intrigued.

So, on the recommendation of a friend, I bought a used copy. It arrived on Friday, and I picked it up Saturday evening.

I read it cover to cover before I went to bed.

Wow.
Double wow.
Triple wow.

This is a fascinating book written 30 years ago, but that predicts what can and will happen in our society, based upon what happened in the first half of the 20th century.

And what's really interesting is that it describes to a T what is happening in our world, today.

It's not just for Christians, but I would highly recommend it to all followers of Jesus Christ.

Five stars, unequivocally. ( )

For me, despite his son's tell-all book and Bob Dylan's disenchantment with Christianity, nothing undermines poor Dr. Schaeffer like the picture of him short breeches and knee socks, on the back of this book. ( )
