This study of American cultural-apologist Francis Schaeffer is designed to present; (1) a context to the man and his life; and (2) what is the theology that gave rise to this manâ€™s philosophical understanding of God, the world, man, and our duty in transforming our culture and society according to the Word of God. Schaefferâ€™s essential ideas are not new, actually they are old. Old is often good if it is based on the principles of Godâ€™s Word. And there are times where Dr. Crampton points out differences in Dr. Schaefferâ€™s thought and his own. Yet, Dr. Crampton praises Schaefferâ€™s understanding that American culture and society has got to be changed, and those changes will only work if they are based in a Christian society that follows the Bible in every area of life. In this concise overview, Dr. Gary Crampton has written a book that is a must read prior to commencing an in-depth study into the man, his method, and theo-philosophical ideas. I highly recommend this book.
