This authoritative biography draws on over 150,000 words of specially collected oral history to reveal who Francis Schaeffer was and how he became one of the foremost shapers of modern evangelical Christianity.
COLIN DURIEZ has appeared as a commentator on several mainstream documentaries, has authored biographies of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien, and studied for several months under Francis Schaeffer in Swiss L'Abri before reading English and philosophy at the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland. He writes books, edits, and lectures.
His impassioned, genuine life is the focus of Colin Duriez's authoritative biography, which draws on over 150,000 words of oral history in addition to other resources to portray not just the man and his relationships but his spiritual formation and the development of his ideas, creative works, and worldview. Duriez, who studied under and interviewed Schaeffer, guides readers through the mans distinct life phases, teachings, and complexities as a person to reveal why Schaeffer still matters today.
Filling an important void in Schaeffer literature, this full-length biography illuminates the complex journey of one whose relentless passion for truth, reality, a full-orbed faith, and meeting the needs of people made him not just a giant within evangelicalism but a shining example of what every Christian in every generation strives after: an authentic life lived to the glory of God.
