Overview

Francis Schaeffer was a well-known, extremely influential
apologist and thinker who made his mark defending orthodox truth in
the face of strong opposition. He was foremost in the vocation of
apologetic ministry, and he was a brilliant man whom God used
mightily during the decades of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.


In Truth with Love, Bryan Follis explores the theology
and thinking that fueled the ministry of Francis Schaeffer, from
his Reformed position to his understanding of fundamentalism.
Follis examines Schaeffer's apologetic argument and the role of
reason in his discussions and writings. The position Francis
Schaeffer took against modernism and its applicability in this day
of postmodernism are studied as well.


This book is a beneficial resource for any Francis Schaeffer fan
and any minister, teacher, or student who appreciates truth and its
defense in the face of different kinds of opposition.

From the Publisher

"Truth with Love powerfully demonstrates that while Schaeffer's thought stands up to scrutiny, it is his distinctive style that enabled him to herald the Christian message with such compelling power."
William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

"More than a thoughtful assessment of Francis Schaeffer's apologetics. An encouragement to Christians to love people around them and to bear witness of the truth of the gospel."
D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"By skillfully and graciously responding to Schaeffer's critics, Follis reveals how extraordinarily powerful and relevant Schaeffer's ideas are."
Ranald Macaulay, Speaker, L'Abri Fellowship; Coordinator, Christian Heritage, Cambridge

"The best introduction to Schaeffer's apologetics. Follis captures the unity of commitment to the Christian message and a life that lives that message faithfully-a unity that characterized the ministry of Francis Schaeffer."
Jerram Barrs, Resident Scholar of the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Theological Seminary; author, Freedom and Discipleship and The Heart of Prayer
