Two Contents, Two Realities. by Francis A. Schaeffer. Select Format: Paperback. ISBN13:9780877843092.

Case in point: Two Contents, Two Realities by Francis Schaeffer. To call it a booklet would be inaccurate. Schaeffer’s proposition in this piece is simple. The culture is getting increasingly more secular and ungodly. To call it a pamphlet would be insulting. The worst accusation one could hurl at this work is irrelevant or outdated. Originally published in 1974 as a position paper that was presented at the International Congress on World Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland, Schaeffer’s work (as usual) is prophetic, timely, and challenging. There are two contents and two realities: Content 1: Sound Doctrine. Content 2: Honest Answers to Honest Questions.

Expanded to include Schaeffer's classic, Two Contents, Two Realities. 144 pages, softcover from Crossway Books.

Schaeffer groups Scripture into themes--what the Bible says about creation, sin, the work of Christ, and more--to show how God's Word addresses real people with real problems and offers real solutions. Expanded to include Schaeffer's classic, Two Contents, Two Realities. 25 Basic Bible Studies (Including Two Contents, Two Realities) - eBook (9781433528880) by Francis A.

This had two parts: first, it seemed to me that among many of those who held the orthodox position one saw little reality in the things that the Bible so clearly said should be the result of Christianity. Second, it gradually grew on me that my own reality was less than it had been in the early days after I had become a Christian. I realized that in honesty I had to go back and rethink my whole position. Volume 4: A Christian View of the Church.

Recognized internationally for his work in Christianity and culture, Schaeffer passed away in 1984 but his influence and legacy continue worldwide. Volume 1: A Christian View of Philosophy and Culture. The God Who Is There. Two Contents, Two Realities.

The address presented at the International Congress on World Evangelism, 1974. It represents the core of Dr. Schaeffer's message to the church today.
  • Francis August Schaeffer (1912-1984) was an American Christian theologian, philosopher, apologist, and Presbyterian pastor, as well as the founder of the L'Abri community in Switzerland. He wrote the famed "trilogy": God Who Is There,Escape from Reason, and He is There & He is not Silent. He has also written many other books such as How Then should We then Live,Genesis in Space and Time,The Church At the End of the 20th Century,Death in the City, etc. He also turned to politics with Whatever happened to the human race, which was influenced by his filmmaker son Frank (who later regretted it; see his book, Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect).

    This 1974 booklet contains the title essay, as well as an Appendix, "Race and Economics." The title essay, as well as the first essay in his booklet No Final Conflict, were Schaeffer's presentation at the 1974 Lausanne Congress.

    He begins the title essay with the statement, "There are four things which I think are absolutely necesary if we as Christians are to meet the need of our age and the overwhelming pressure we are increasingly facing. They are two contents and two realities." He then explains, "The first content is clear doctrinal content concerning the central elements of Christianity... We must have the courage to make no compromise with liberal theology and especially neo-orthodox existential theology." (Pg. 7-8)

    He says, "The second content is that Christianity is truth, and we must give honest answers to honest questions... There is no dichotomy in the Bible between the intellectual and cultural on the one hand and the spiritual on the other... If Christianity is truth as the Bible claims, it must touch every aspect of life." (Pg. 15) He adds, "Many Christians think that 1 Corinthians speaks against the use of the intellect. But it does not. What [it] speaks against is a man's pretending to be autonomous... without recourse to the revelation of the Word of God... Paul was against the early gnosticism, wherein a man could be saved merely on the basis of such knowledge. Paul did answer questions... wherever they arose." (Pg. 16-17)

    He then states, "The first reality is spiritual reality... we believe with all our hearts that Christian truth can be presented in propositions... [But] the end of Christianity is not the repetition of mere propositions... A dead, ugly orthodoxy with no real spiritual reality must be rejected as sub-Christian." (Pg. 20) Then he says, "The second reality is the beauty of human relationships. True Christianity produces beauty as well as truth, especially in the specific areas of human relationships... We are to show something to the watching world on the basis of the human relationships we have with other men, not just other Christians." (Pg. 23) He concludes, "there must be two orthodoxies: the orthodoxy of doctrine and the orthodoxy of community. And both orthodoxies must be practised down into the warp and the woof of life where the lordship of the Lord Jesus touches every area of our life." (Pg. 29)

    In the Appendix, he advises, "Unhappily, at our moment of history... the tendency is to minimize the missions and the preaching of the Gospel and/or to move over to some degree to the left... The answer is... in calling for a compassionate use of wealth by all who have it and especially by the PRACTICE of a compassionate use of wealth wherever true Christians are... we must make the proper emphasis concerning these an integral part of our evangelicalism." (Pg. 32)

    This booklet covers themes that Schaeffer has written on before, of course, but its brevity may make it an attractive "introduction" for those who are hesitant to take on his longer and more complex works.

  • This is a small booklet by Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer that deals with 2 areas of importance in the believer's life. The 2 areas are orthodoxy in doctrine and in practice. Dr. Francis Schaeffer says that we all have the tendency to over or under emphasize one or the other, but we must seek to neglect neither. Of course , all true Christian behavior flows from sound doctrine. Dr. Schaeffer also focuses on the balance of viewing all men as created in the image of God, yet they are also depraved sinners. The appendix deals with the issues of race and the compassionate use of wealth. Unfortunately, many who have been orthodox in doctrine sadly have held unbiblical views on race and economics. Schaeffer strongly states that all men, of all colors and ethnicities, are created in God's image and should be treated with dignity. Also, though wealth in not inherently evil, we should be kind in our use of wealth. This is a small booklet, but it packs a powerful punch. Highly recommended.

  • Schaeffer calls what we have, a "system", where we are not to just accept it thoughtlessly, but by testing and reason. Christianity "must touch every aspect of life" and "give honest answers to honest questions". This is a profound book written by a clear thinking Christian intellectual.

    These two contents and two realities are the orthodoxy of doctrine and the orthodoxy of community; and when all these come together something profound happens: a real Christian love that shines throughout the world. The First Content: sound doctrine; the Second Content: honest answers to honest questions; the First Reality: true spirituality; and the Second Reality: the beauty of human relationships.
