User Review  - Jared Mcnabb - Goodreads

Some great stuff in here, as well as being very motivational. His concept of "connotation words" and their use has stuck with me. Read full review

Review: The God Who Is There

User Review  - Joshua Sparkman - Goodreads

An insightful discussion of the journey away from romanticism and toward post-modernism in 20th century. Much of what Schaeffer says still applies incredibly well to today. The appendices were very helpful as well. Read full review
