Series: Theologians on the Christian Life
FRANCIS SCHAEFFER was one of the most influential apologists of the 20th 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 addressed every sphere of life. This volumewritten by a man converted from agnosticism within days of meeting Schaefferis the first book devoted to exploring the heart and soul of Schaeffers approach to the Christian life, and will help readers strive after the same kind of marriage of thought and life, of orthodoxy and love.

This book by Dr. Edgar on countercultural spirituality is much needed as a trustworthy guide in the dark confusion of the postmodern world.
Chairman, LAbri Fellowship International Board of Trustees
An engaging, fascinating account, seasoned with unusual insight into one of the truly original apologists of our time.
-David F. Wells,
Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
For many years I hoped that I could spend some time at LAbri, but that was not Gods plan for me. Instead, God enabled me to become friends with many LAbri alumni, of whom Bill Edgar was one. I have been impressed with the intellectual caliber of those men and women, but even more with their godly character. LAbri evidently had a way of leading people from intellectual atheism, to conversion, to spiritual maturity. Bills book focuses, more than other LAbri books, on theis process of what we now call spiritual formation. The whole church can learn much from it. I commend this excellent book to all how seek to draw nearer to God.
-John M. Frame,
J. D. Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida
Francis Schaeffer was small of stature but a giant in his tenacious concern for truth, for God, for people, and for reality. He became convinced that Christian faith was the radical path for our own day, the realistic answer to the hard questions of a modern, troubled world. William Edgars compulsively readable study of Francis Schaeffers thought is set in the context of his rough-edged life and his brilliantly-inspired work in the LAbri community he established with his remarkable wife, Edith. LAbri, perched high on the slopes of a remote alpine valley, drew a motley procession of mainly young travellers from the ends of the earth. Schaeffers own, sometimes anguished, quest to communicate the ancient biblical text in a century of unprecedented historical changes attracted and opened doors for a generation of Christians. It also convinced many outside the faith with honest questions (like Bill Edgar himself) to follow the way of Christ. This engaging book captures the fire of Francis Schaeffers thought and concerns, and revisits and reinvigorates the still urgent challenge he presented to the church in the modern world.
