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.
