As Mostyn Roberts reviews the life of this man of God, variously called a prophet for his prescient analysis of trends in culture that explains where we are today, an apologist, and even a philosopher, he shows us that fundamentally Schaeffer rejoiced, to the end, in being a pastor and an evangelist.
Francis Schaeffer… is arguably one of the five most important Evangelical leaders of the second half of the 20th century. This brief but excellent summary of his life and ideas is a helpful reminder of his importance. As a genuine prophet, Schaeffer's assessment of our times and of what we should be doing about them, is, if anything, more relevant today than when he first wrote.
