Excellent book

Good for anyone wondering what's wrong with the modern "evangelical" churches.

Provocative

Francis Schaeffer was one of the greatest Christian Apologists (defenders of the faith) of this generation. He wrote 25 books, with 3 million copies in print, and was a much sought-after speaker. Although this may have been the last book he wrote before he died, it was the first of his books that I read. This was the book that got me reading around issues related to Christianity. The premise of the book is that Evangelical Christianity has experienced a critical crisis. He refers to it as a watershed event; an issue that causes a divide and makes a person choose one side or the other. The issue he is referring to is the inerrancy of Scripture. It used to be that if you said you were a Christian, it followed that you believed the Bible to be true. However, a shift occurred, so that many people felt they could be Christians, and yet believe the Bible to be full of errors. Schaeffer further explains that the implications of such a view were compromise and accommodation, until there was almost nothing they would speak out against. It is a call to a radical, back-to-basics faith, one in which Believers, actually Believe.
