Ash Heap Lives is firstly a sermon by Francis Schaeffer from their time of furlough in 1954. It is secondly the title of the British version of the later published American printing of No Little People. The sermon itself is contained within the book.

Ash Heap Lives (the sermon) is a powerful lesson on the subject on materialism. The title conveys that much of what consumes the excessive pursuits of modern man are things that will eventually pass away and are the substance of the ash heap.
