Nearly 25 years after his death Francis Schaeffer is considered to be one of the foremost shapers of modern Christianity. An author, church pastor and philosopher, Schaeffer had a unique ability to engage folks from almost any walk of life: scientists, artists, doubters, skeptics, intellectuals, labourers, children.

Colin Duriez is well-placed to write a biography on Schaeffer. He’s an author who studied directly under Schaeffer at his well-known swiss chalet called L’Abri. Colin is the author of Francis Schaeffer: An Authentic Life.

Biographer Colin Duriez reveals why Francis Schaeffer was one of the great shapers of modern-day Christianity.
