    I love Edith Schaeffer. Oh dear, she needs an editor though. I want to give her 5 stars, because I love her as a person. I love her character, her life, what she stood for, the kind of wife and mother and Christian she was. I just wish someone would have helped her edit her writing. If they had, I think her books could have been more popular than they were. This book was taken from (or written as a companion to?) a video lecture series. It has the feel of a transcription - a rambling conversatio I love Edith Schaeffer. Oh dear, she needs an editor though. I want to give her 5 stars, because I love her as a person.

If they had, I think her books could have been more popular than they were. This book was taken from (or written as a companion to?) a video lecture series. It has the feel of a transcription - a rambling conversation that switches from topic to topic and has unnecessary words. The chapters also seemed to be in random order. Some were question and answer format, but some weren't, and there was no order to it. After hearing testimonies from people who knew her, it seems that in real life Edith was a bit unscheduled and unorganized. She loved to talk and tell stories, but her stories took a while to come to a conclusion. Knowing this, I think she writes true to her personality. That's okay, but she still needs an editor. After forcing myself to finish reading this copy, I considered getting rid of it or giving it to someone who would enjoy it, but I decided to keep it because it had a lovely handwritten message from Edith on the inside cover, complete with a sketch of mountains and a flock of birds. She had dedicated it to someone in 1984, shortly after her husband died. She says she was made happier by the arrival of a piano at her house. I still love Edith Schaeffer.... :) .

    Ever since studying under Francis Schaeffer through his video series "How Should We Then Live?" I've wanted to pursue his words and learn more about L'Abri. Through a mentor at church, I'd heard bits and pieces of wisdom from Edith Schaeffer and always found them thought-provoking and wise. For these reasons, I chose to get to know Edith on a more personal level through reading her works. Although I found some of the ideas a bit simplistic and seemingly redundant, she made several key points tha Ever since studying under Francis Schaeffer through his video series "How Should We Then Live?"

For these reasons, I chose to get to know Edith on a more personal level through reading her works. Although I found some of the ideas a bit simplistic and seemingly redundant, she made several key points that are worth reading the book for. The highlight for me is a discussion on continuity of the Bible and how to raise children in such a way that challenges them to ask difficult questions about Christianity instead of simply blindly accepting it as truth.

    Ah.... Edith Schaeffer is such a breath of fresh air. I underlined so many passages in this book - now to go back to the beginning and transcribe these passages in my journal. I will be rereading this one over again a few times!

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. I tried to take it slowly, and more study it than just breeze through because there was so much information. I know I could read it again and more would find it's way into my mind, but that will be for a later date. I enjoyed Mrs. Schaeffer's ability to explain things on simple terms, every day terms, ordinary terms. My thought process has changed due to this book, and I am grateful for that.

    I read this book based on a recommendation by Ann Voskamp (author of "One Thousand Gifts"). Overall, this book was fantastic. I thought it was a little slow to start off, but the last half was pretty practical and had wonderful, thought-provoking chapters. This book will definitely be on my read-again list!

    Another winner from Edith Schaeffer. She's the cheerleader for the thousands of Christian women who struggle to build a meaningful home life for themselves, their families and their guests. So important in a culture where stay-at-home moms (women without "real" careers) are dismissed as not doing anything important. Schaeffer was a sane voice in a mad world.

    I truly enjoyed this book. Mrs. Schaeffer put great thought and sensitivity into each chapter. By far, the last chapter was the most inspiring for me, Sensible Balance in the Building and the Battle.
