The Center for Faith and Culture on the campus of South Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2008 held the first-ever conference in honor of Dr. Francis Schaeffer. The conference was more than an historical inquiry into the life and ministry of Schaeffer; it was about how Schaeffer might inform Christians in the 21st century on reaching culture with biblical and philosophical integrity. Schaeffer's view of people was that they belonged to humanity---broken humanity, yes---but nonetheless humanity made in the image of God. This was more than a point of doctrine for Schaeffer; it was the ground on which he treated each person with significance and respect. This book supports the belief that Francis Schaeffer's word to the Christian community is as relevant today, and maybe more so, than in his own lifetime.
