Francis Schaeffer was one of the most influential apologists of the twentieth century. Through his speaking, writing, and filmmaking, Schaeffer successfully transformed the way people thought of the Christian faith, from a rather private kind of piety to a worldview that addresses every sphere of life. This volume—written by a man converted from agnosticism within days of meeting Schaeffer—is the first book devoted to exploring the heart and soul of Schaeffer’s approach to the Christian life, and will help readers strive after the same kind of marriage of thought and life, of orthodoxy and love.
William Edgar first met Francis Schaeffer at L'Abri in 1964, and so this is a sympathetic appraisal from a friend, although he is willing to disagree with him. The first third of the book is an overview of Schaeffer's life, which is very helpful at setting the context. The rest looks at Schaeffer's writings. Annoyingly the references are to volumes in the collected works, rather than individual books which makes working out where he said what difficult. However the book is still an excellent overview of Schaeffer's thought, although some of it is from his wife Edith.
