Considered foundational to his entire life's work, this text was revised shortly before the renowned theologian's death.

Schaeffer authored more than twenty books, which have been translated into a score of languages and sold millions worldwide. He and his wife, Edith, founded L'Abri Fellowship international study and discipleship centers. Schaeffer passed away in 1984, but his influence and legacy continue worldwide.

Jonathon Hallett5 Stars Out Of 5October 26, 2009Jonathon HallettFrancis Schaeffer was a giant among the Christian intellectuals. This book will impart knowledge, wisdom, and insights that most Christians don't know and yet desperately need to know in order to influence such a godless culture. Don't pass this book up if you like to read.
Jeanine Pumphrey5 Stars Out Of 5September 10, 2009Jeanine PumphreyThe book was a gift to a grad student friend with high level thinking. She has already remarked that the writing parallels teachings and studies she has heard or recieved in recent years.

Daniel Cha5 Stars Out Of 5October 11, 2007Daniel ChaI started reading Francis Schaeffer when I was in high school. Having finished his Complete Works years ago, I still find myself being drawn to some of his books again and again. Specifically, those books are the ones that compose the so-called Schaeffer Trilogy. They have shaped the way I view life's big questions, and hence, the way I view life. Some have criticized Schaeffer's use of the broad brush in his treatment of the history of philosophy and of the development of western culture. I would counter that people do this all the time in their daily conversation. Schaeffer was the grand generalist who saw the interplay of ideas across the various disciplines and was able to comment upon them from a biblical perspective. In short, he was a true intellect who read widely and thought deeply.As Schaeffer so eloquently pointed out, when you ask the basic questions (and there are only few), you are ultimately left with only few possible answers. To know that true biblical Christianity has the only (not "best," but "only") rational answers in the areas of morals, metaphysics, and epistemology is wonderful indeed. The old Bible speaks to modern man.
