1. The L'Abri Ideas Library

For over 50 years L'Abri has sought to provide a safe place for people to ask questions about the reality and relevance of Christian faith. These questions have prompted the L'Abri workers to develop lectures and discussions that explore how Christianity relates to areas of life such as philosophy, culture, the arts, psychology, gender, sociology, history, theology, politics, economics, science, and ecology. The Ideas Library contains over 1000 of these lectures available for free download. New ideas are added to the collection each month.
