This is a Video of Christian apologist and evangelist Francis Schaeffer and his wife for a Question and Answer session for a Conference organized by Labri Fellowship back in 1984.  It took place in Knoxville in the US.  This was actually two months before his death.

I thought it was neat to see Schaeffer talked about not being afraid to stand for what is just and right merely because people who oppose Evangelical Christians use negative labels against Christians.

I did found one thing odd with the Q&A is with the first question being asked.  Francis Schaeffer says he was not familiar with the term “Christian Reconstructionist.”  I find that hard to believe given Schaeffer’s familiarity with RJ Rushdoony’s work.

Apologist Francis Schaeffer has been insightful in many ways concerning our contemporary time even though he has been dead for a few decades.

Here below is a message by Francis Schaeffer titled “The Watershed of the Evangelical World.”  I think the message is classic Schaeffer with many of his motifs mentioned in the presentation such as the importance of Scripture, the dichotomies of unbelief, values and worldviews.

I also found a PDF outline online that one can look to go along with the message.

How Shall We then Live SchaefferThose of you who have followed us on Veritas Domain knows that Francis Schaeffer is someone that comes up from time to time in our posts.  Francis Schaeffer was a great Christian apologist and evangelist that was a student of Cornelius Van Til who developed his apologetics in his own direction.

For the month of September 2014 Christian Audio has made available for free the audio book of Schaeffer’s Classic, How Shall We Then Live?

I enjoyed reading this book about ten years ago and also the documentary series that Schaeffer produced with his son.

You can get the audio book if you click HERE.

Celebrating Francis Schaeffer 30 years Anniversary

A British Christian organization called Christian Heritage over at Cambridge has featured an event back in May 15th, 2014 celebrating the life of Francis Schaeffer on the 30th Anniversary of Francis Schaeffer’s death.

Here’s a description of the event from the event page:

The 15th May was the 30th anniversary of Francis Schaeffer’s death. To many he was unquestionably one of the twentieth century’s most outstanding evangelical leaders. His influence throughout the church was vast. Had he not ‘buried’ himself in a small mountain village in Switzerland to start a little-known work called L’Abri Fellowship, committed to prayer rather than ‘advertising’, perhaps more would know his name. Was he a prophet? Did his extraordinary authority arise from a quite unique biblical analysis of our culture? Were his warnings and pleas not exactly what were needed?  But was he – for that very reason – not also an uncomfortable prophet? Did his critiques of Evangelicalism not cut too close to the bone? Join us to find out more.

Here are the talks:

Thursday 15 May, 5.45 – 9.00pm

5.45 – 7pm: The Real Schaeffer byAndrew Fellows who is the Director of the English L’Abri Fellowship and Ranald Macaulay, Schaeffer’s son-in-law and founder of Christian Heritage

7.30 – 9pm: Schaeffer’s ‘True Truth’ byDr Os Guinness who is aprolific author and social critic

Although I don’t agree with him in everything nevertheless I do appreciate the apologist and evangelist Francis Schaeffer.

This is a rare clip of Francis Schaeffer teaching.  This was recently loaded online on Youtube courtesy of the Francis Schaeffer Study Center on the occasion of Resurrection Sunday.

Here’s the video’s description:

This video is from the 1983 L’Abri Conference in Atlanta. The full lecture with Q&A time has been included. The lecture was also previously given on May 11, 1983 in Minneapolis at the Evangelical Press Association Convention. A transcript of this lecture is available here: http://edmontonbpc.org/wp/2012/02/names-and-issues-by-francis-schaeffer/
