5.0 out of 5 stars Stimulating, refreshing, challenging, 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The God Who Is There (Paperback)
I first read this [along with Escape from Reason; He is There and He is not Silent, and Death in the City] some 40 years ago. Re-reading it has highlighted just how much Francis Schaeffer has influenced my thinking, evangelism and teaching for four decades.
The breadth and depth of coverage of what he addresses is stunning.
He is a evangelical who is conservative in his thinking and this (clearly) will not suit everyone, BUT I would plead for anyone to read this with a willingness to have their thinking challenged and not to kick what he says into the long grass before weighing CAREFULLY what he says.
I have been refreshed by re-reading The God Who is There; and again challenged to engage with where people are at today and to reach out in my communication in ways that give them a chance of hearing what I am saying - and for me to hear what they are saying - rather than speaking in concepts and language that is easier for me (and behind which I am tempted to hide because it feels safer!).
Go on - be challenged!
