Death in the City
Death in the City is an apologetic work by American theologian Francis A. Schaeffer, Chicago:InterVarsity Press, first published in 1969. It is Book Four in Volume Four of The Complete Works of Francis A. Schaeffer A Christian Worldview. Westchester, IL:Crossway Books, 1982.
This work was written by Schaeffer as an answer to the question:
- In what has been called a post-Christian world, what should be our perspective and how should we function as individuals, as institutions, as orthodox Christians, and as those who claim to be Bible-believing? (p.209)
The basic answer, given by Schaeffer in Chapter One, is that "the church in our generation needs reformation, revival, and constructive revolution." (p. 209)
