Publisher Description

Nearly twenty-five years after his death, Francis Schaeffer's impact as one of the foremost shapers of modern Christianity still reverberates within the church and contemporary culture. A pastor, filmmaker, apologist, best-selling author, and political activist whose work and ministry reached around the world, Schaeffer also managed to deeply and personally influence people of every age and position — men, women, youth, and children; the schooled intellectual and the humble laborer, the scientist and the artist, the doubting Christian and the skeptical non-believer — in a way that few others have.
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 man’s 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.
