SCHAEFFER, Francis August


SCHAEFFER, Francis August
(1912-1983)
   highly successful CHRISTIAN EVANGELIST in the REFORMED TRADITION and founder of the L'Abri Community. A self-professed FUNDAMENTALIST influenced by Princeton THEOLOGY and the PHILOSOPHY of DOOYEWEERD, he moved from a religious GHETTO to embrace the world as a speaker comfortable with heated debate leading a REVIVAL of EVANGELICAL interest in philosophy and the Arts. His books, which include The God Who is There (1968), The Church at the End of the Twentieth Century (1970) and True Spirituality (1971), fail to convey the full impact of his CHARISMATIC personality.
