Book Review--Francis Schaeffer: An Authentic Life
Francis Schaeffer: An Authentic Life (2008) by Colin Duriez was a nice overview of the life of Fran, his wife Edith and their ministry. Schaeffer was a unique fixture of American evangelicalism in the 20th century. Earlier in his career, he was fairly separatist, but there were clear transitions through his life. He eventually founded L'Abri, which means "The Shelter" in Switzerland. He and Edith opened their home for those who had questions about faith and life, ministering to them through evangelism and apologetics, though perhaps most importantly through loving hospitality.
If you are wanting an overview of the life of this remarkable man, this is certainly a good place to start.
