Francis Schaeffer was a Presbyterian minister with an
ability to see how the questions of meaning, morals, and value being dealt with
by philosophy, were the same questions that the Bible dealt with, only in
different language. Once an agnostic, Schaeffer came to the conclusion that
Biblical Christianity not only gave sufficient answers to the big questions, but
that they were the only answers that were both self-consistent and livable. With
this conviction he became a man of conversation.
Schaeffer taught that
God is really there and He is not silent. He had spoken to man in the Bible as
and a result we could have "true truth" about God and man. Knowing the dignity
of man created in God's image, he placed a high value on creativity as an
expression of that image. He opened his Swiss home to travelers to discuss these
things. Later he began lecturing in universities and writing a number of books.
Perhaps no other Christian thinker of the twentieth century, besides C.S. Lewis,
has had more influence on thinking people
