This book is a part of Crossway’s Countercultural Spirituality series. Of all the volumes in the series perhaps the most natural choice for inclusion is Francis Schaeffer. Schaeffer it was whose lectures and writings urged upon a docile church the responsibility of engaging the culture. His L’Abri mission epitomized a way of doing it directly. Schaeffer’s life was all about living out the truth of Christianity intelligently before the watching world. He relentlessly called upon Christians to explore and exhibit God’s “reality”: to imbibe, not just intellectually but experientially the Living Truth in a fallen culture.
