About the Author

Francis A. Schaeffer founded the L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland and was the author of many books, including The God Who Is There. Until his death in 1984, he was also a noted speaker with a worldwide ministry. His ministry continues through his books, with over two million copies in print.


This classic book needs to be read by a new generation that may not know of Schaeffer, and re-read by those who have been influenced by him.--Knowing & Doing, Spring 2009
"'This book, and its companion volumes, accomplished something startling and necessary: It made intellectual history a vital part of the evangelical landscape, opening up the worlds particularly of art and philosophy to a subculture that was suspicious and ignorant of both, ' writes John Stackhouse, professor of theology and culture at Regent College."--Christianity Today, October 2006
