Francis Schaeffer was a brilliant apologist
Francis Schaeffer was a brilliant apologist. In this book, he provides some very convincing arguments why it is quite rational to believe in the existence of God. He lays out metaphysical, moral and epistemological reasons for the existence of an infinite, uncreated God. He shows how no philosophical or religious system other than Christianity can adequately provide the answers about life.

Schaeffer’s argument is tighter and he doesn’t get sidetracked on philosophical issues that are beyond his capacity. I found this book more difficult than Escape from Reason and for some reason I skipped The God Who is There, which I will have to pick up. Schaeffer outlines For a long time I have felt that presuppositional apologetics and classic apologetics, when done and held rightly, can be mutually supporting. Presuppositions feed facts. But facts, the way the world is, feed our presuppositions as well.
He points out that the universe is only necessarily silent if it is impersonal. However, if it had a personal beginning and personality existed prior to the material universe, then we have the possibility of communication to man of values that are universal and absolute.

He starts this process by pointing out that "no man can live without a worldview; therefore there is no man who is not a philosopher. He then shows that today's postmodern thought that says objective truth doesn't exist leaves us only with chaos. Schaeffer's book was a godsend to me, answering and echoing the questions that rang in my mind when trying to figure out what it really means to be a follower of Christ, and whether or not being one entails leaving reason behind in favor of revelation. This work goes a long way in answering the questions of HOW I know what I know; and exposing presuppositions about the nature of the universe that shape our thinking.
Francis Schaeffer believed passionately that Christianity is the truth about the universe in which we live. God is there, and he is not silent. God is not an idea projected from our minds, or from our longings, onto the giant screen of the heavens, a kind of superhuman created to meet our needs. God is not a thought in the system of a philosopher who cannot cope with having no answers to the dilemmas of our human existence.
