It is possible to be a Christian without showing the mark, but if we expect non-Christians to know that we are Christians, we must show the mark.

Christians have not always presented an inviting picture to the world. Too often we have failed to show the beauty of authentic Christian love. And the world has disregarded Christianity as a result. In our era of global violence and sectarian intolerance, the church needs to hear anew the challenge of this book.

Decades ago Francis Schaeffer exhorted, Love - and the unity it attests to - is the mark Christ gave Christians to wear before the world. Only with this mark may the world know that Christians are indeed Christians and that Jesus was sent by the Father. More than ever, the church needs to respond compassionately to a needy world. More than ever, we need to show the Mark. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 1/27/2014

    " Short, convicting, convincing, recalibrating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Bettger | 1/21/2014

    " I love this book. It maps out what it looks like outwardly to be a Christian. It looks like love! Love for one another, beginning with other believers and then spreading out missionally to those who don't know Jesus. Our love is not a worldly love but a supernatural one that consists of repentance, forgiveness, reconciliation as well as patience kindness, goodness, self- control. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Troy | 1/18/2014

    " Very inspiring and challenging. Helps you understand the importance of 2 Corinthians 10:5. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 12/23/2013

    " I liked his apologetics titles a tad better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bethany | 12/12/2013

    " "The observable practice of truth and the observable practice of love go hand in hand with the proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ebby | 12/8/2013

    " This is a very short, yet thorough (and quite convicting) study on loving others the way Christ commanded us to. I would recommend any Christian who is striving to live godly to pick this one up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 12/7/2013

    " Are you a Christian? Then you better read this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wade | 12/4/2013

    " This book is a very simpile statement on what it means to be a Christian: love God and love other people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aubrey | 10/28/2013

    " Amazing read. Highly reccomended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri | 8/24/2013

    " True, Truth. This book was a healing balm after a situation involving spiritual abuse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin Brown | 8/7/2013

    " Great book and an easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stevie | 6/9/2013

    " He says that the mark of the Christian is love. I think he had it right on the money. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 bookme4life | 4/28/2013

    " A bite size book that's really just an extended essay, it manages to still be relevant all these years later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerry | 3/9/2013

    " I read this from Schaeffer's complete works. Outstanding. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob Ladwig | 11/6/2012

    " I really just love this little book. It is short, a one sitting book, but what a book. Schaeffer points us to the mark that Christ said those who are his would have and the watching world would see, love. I have read this several times never coming away empty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eli | 8/19/2012

    " I really liked this book, even though I think Schaeffer was missing one of the most important meanings of "loving one another": that is, loving a believer in Christ for righteousness sake (see 1 John 3:12). But overall, it was very good and I truly appreciate Francis Schaeffer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Bianco | 7/6/2012

    " This may be the first book I've read by Schaeffer. Good on love, good on forgiveness. Bothered by some of the backpedaling he does to maintain his understanding of "justification by faith", but otherwise a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Belcher | 11/16/2011

    " this little book is a must read for all Christians. It was interesting to read after all the controversy over Rob Bell's recent book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 9/6/2011

    " A good, quick read. It wasn't rocket science, but it was right on the money. As Schaeffer kept saying, the idea he was presenting was simple, but not easy. Well worth the time to read because it was so short. I think if it was longer I may have lost interest before finishing it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Side Gate | 6/3/2011

    " This book is one that Christians should read. It speaks of love. What it is and what it isn't and how non-Christians are will judge our Christianity based on this kind of love. Very clear and insightful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 kellyn | 4/5/2011

    " This is a short, frank explanation of the kind of person Jesus commands his followers to be; in relationship to God, the Church and the world. I really like how Schaeffer analyzes the wrong things Christians in the Church believe that cause the failings of the Church on a large scale. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Moonburst | 4/4/2011

    " Read for Contemporary Christian Belief. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 3/20/2011

    " This is an outstanding book, if you could even call it that. In so few pages Schaeffer reminds us what so many have forgotten. Please read this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 3/6/2011

    " A must read! I love Shaeffer's way of clarifying history's events and how it all points to the existence of a God who not only created us, but loves us today and always. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leonard | 3/6/2011

    " Even when I was 19, I gathered that this book was pretty crap. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 2/10/2011

    " Loved it. Brought so much sense to my faith and offered me challenges in living my life in a more God-centered way "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanne | 12/20/2010

    " Originally published in 1976. Subtitle: The rise and decline of Western thought and culture. If you aren't motivated to read the whole book, at least read the last 3 chapters. Its predictions for the state of our culture--made 30 years ago--are proving to be eerily accurate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susanne | 10/19/2010

    " Excellent introduction to a Christian worldview. A broad foundation for one's perspective of history, polictics, art etc. Francis Schaeffer is a brilliant christian philosopher who offers amazing insight in this book. Easy enough to read for the novice yet deeply profound. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 10/17/2010

    " Superb if you want to undersatnd the development of western thought as it manifests itself in art and culture generally. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 9/23/2010

    " It's the history of Western civilization that nobody teaches anymore. I'm grateful for that, but I certainly needed to remind myself of the gospel for some hope after I finished it. Our culture is in a depressing place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamara | 7/19/2010

    " Definitive book on "the Rise and Decline of Western Thought" "
