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.
"Friendly, passionate, intellectual, and constantly engaged with people as well as ideas and contemporary affairs, Francis Schaeffer comes alive in Edgar's objective but affectionate portrait. Rescued from the distortions of both lionisers and demonizers, here is 'FAS' as so many of us knew him in the great years of L'Abri - and with so much to contribute to our world today." - Os Guinness, Cofounder, The Trinity Forum; Author, The Dust of Death and The Last Christian on Earth
