In He Is There and He Is Not Silent, Francis Schaeffer - philosopher, popular speaker, and founder of L'Abri Fellowship in the Swiss Alps - addresses some of the most perplexing questions to believers and unbelievers alike:

  • Does God Exist?
  • Does it make Sense to believe in God?
  • Can we ever Know God?

    During his life, Francis Schaeffer welcomed questioners and doubters from all walks of life to L'Abri Fellowship. For Schaeffer, Christianity expressed the ultimate truth. That is why he never shunned doubts and questions by honest seekers. He knew the truths in the Bible would always prove themselves when they were thoroughly investigated by an open mind and heart.

    From the intriguing late night discussions at L'Abri came a series of compelling books that every Christian should own, especially this classic, He Is There and He Is Not Silent. Download and start listening now!

    Listener Opinions

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Caneday | 1/20/2014

      " This is a much more philosophic book than "Escape From Reason," which is saying quite a lot, as Schaeffer is a very philosophic writer. This is a good one about the importance of epistemology. Start with his others and come to this one later and you'll probably get more out if it. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/4/2014

      " I have not read enough Francis Schaeffer and trying to catch up. I used this book to help me prepare a talk on Evidences for the Existence of God. He Is There and He Is Not Silent was exceptionally helpful in developing the epistemological argument. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 12/19/2013

      " One of his better works. Recommended. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Side Gate | 12/9/2013

      " This is not a book for everyone, however, everyone should understand what is being said. If you are interested in how our culture got where it is, and are wondering what role God plays in it, this book would be good to struggle through. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joel | 8/25/2013

      " This book looks at the necessity of God for metaphysics to make sense, and makes the point that the biblical understanding of the Trinity is necessary as a basis for the meaning of human personality. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 4/9/2013

      " Great discussion of the Christian worldview and how it makes sense of the knowledge and meaning. I can see why it is so highly regarded. You've got to be interested in reading philosophy to get into it though. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 3/18/2013

      " A superb book. Francis Schaeffer demonstrates how Christianity is the only world-view which can account for the three primary questions of philosophy - epistemology, metaphysics, and ethics. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eli | 3/2/2013

      " Great book on metaphysics, epistemology and ethics. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Braven Greenelsh | 10/11/2012

      " For those of you who haven't heard of Francis Schaeffer, he is one of the most prophetic theologians of the twentieth century. I highly suggest you expose yourself if you are into how secular history, the arts and christian apologetics collide. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob Ladwig | 9/30/2012

      " Good follow up to the God who is there, I need to read this again, I think I have read this through 2 times. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor | 9/15/2012

      " Great end to Schaeffer's "trilogy" after Escape From Reason and The God Who Is There. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geraldine Cooper | 7/8/2012

      " A philosophical treatise on the basic questions of life. Not and easy read but highly recommended if you like philosophy and would like a logical proof for christian belief. Schaeffer explores all the problems with modern philosophy and offers the only logical conclusions. "

    • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rob the Obscure | 12/20/2011

      " If you want to see a classic example of the logical fallacy named "begging the question", this book will serve as an excellent illustration "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nico Zarate | 12/7/2011

      " Awesome. Not just awesome in fact, awesome-awesome. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad Kittle | 11/10/2011

      " Read for the second time. Really enjoy Schaeffer. His books are very enlightening. In this book we learn more about why the Christian world view answers to big questions in philosophy and in this case "how we know" and how we come to know or the study of epistemology. Very good. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 3/25/2011
