"The late Schaeffer, who rose to prominence in the 1970s, is regarded as a theologian or even a philosopher, although he regarded himself as an evangelist. He wrote this work as a result of his frustration with his own lack of spiritual progress--specifically, not being able to "walk the talk." Spurred by this personal crisis, he went back to the beginning, to agnosticism, and reexamined his faith in Christ. This work, a confession almost, is a practical examination of how to live the Christian life with integrity in the face of modernity, materialism, and, as Schaeffer puts it, "dead orthodoxy." Grover Gardner narrates with deceptive ease. He reads with a sense of humility--maintaining a low-key and conversational tone. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
