A book reflecting Schaeffer's dissatisfaction with the evangelical church and warns of the obstacles in her way and prescribes the means needed to reform culture. This would be his last full book (Not in the Complete Works, added to them later).


During the final work of this book Schaeffer was assisted by Lane T. Denis to complete the work on time. Schaeffer was struggling heavily with sickness due to Cancer.

There was actually a film made for this book but it was never released. The original is known to be in the Francis Schaeffer's papers owned by The Francis Schaeffer Foundation, which are in the Francis Schaeffer Collection at the library of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where Dr. Bruce A. Little serves as the director.


Francis Schaeffer Studies has an extensive collection of quotes for each of Francis and Edith's various works. When available, this section contains quotes that help give you a sense of the book content.

"Certainly what I have stressed many times is correct: merely being conservative is no better than being nonconservative per se. Conservative humanism is no better than liberal humanism; authoritarianism from the left is no better than authoritarianism from the right. What is wrong is wrong, no matter what tag is placed on it." ~ Dr. Schaeffer, The Great Evangelical Disaster

Keywords: Conservative, Liberal


Francis Schaeffer Studies has done extensive studies on the works of Francis and Edith Schaeffer. When available, in this section you will find class materials and resources to enhance your exploration!

Publisher's Description:

Have Christians compromised their stand on truth and morality until there is almost nothing they will speak out against? Has the evangelical church itself sold out to the world?

A provocative and challenging book—but one that is tempered by Dr. Schaeffer's deep commitment to Christ and love for the church.
