Today is the 25th anniversary of Francis Schaeffer’s death.
Lane Dennis, President and Publisher at Crossway, explains how this teaching by Schaeffer in particular has had a profound effect on the vision of Crossway.
One other thing to note: I saw today on Amazon that Schaeffer’s video series How Should We Then Live? became available earlier this year as a 2-DVD set. Here’s the description:
This is Dr. Francis Schaeffer’s spectacular series on the rise and decline of Western culture from a Christian perspective. The series presents profound truths in simple language and concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute — the Truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures. Each 30-minute episode focuses on a significant era of history while presenting answers to modern problems:
- The Roman Age
- The Middle Ages
- The Renaissance
- The Reformation
- The Revolutionary Age
- The Scientific Age
- The Age of Non-reason
- The Age of Fragmentation
- The Age of Personal Peace & Affluence
- Final Choices
This special edition includes an intimate in-depth interview with Francis and Edith Schaeffer (in two parts) as well as a 10-week study guide in PDF.
