Happy Birthday, Francis Schaeffer

Francis Schaeffer was born 100 years ago today (30 January). I suspect the blogosphere will be full of pieces about him as the day goes on.

Don Sweeting, for one, reflects on Schaeffer’s legacy in a helpful piece here, highlighting five points:

• Schaeffer understood the times

• Schaeffer believed in truth and made truth understandable to average lay people

• I learned about the lordship of Christ from Schaeffer

• Schaeffer was prophetic

• With all his outspokenness and advocacy, Schaeffer insisted that it was not just truth that mattered but also love
