Data de falecimento: 15. Maio 1984

Francis Schaeffer foi um teólogo cristão evangélico americano, filósofo e pastor .

Tornou-se famoso por seus escritos e pela criação da comunidade L’Abri , na Suíça. Opondo-se ao modernismo teológico, à chamada neo-ortodoxia, Schaeffer defendia uma fé baseada na tradição protestante e um enfoque pressuposicional na apologética cristã. Alguns teóricos creditam às ideias de Schaeffer o despertamento das Direita cristã nos Estados Unidos. Edit Schaeffer, esposa de Francis Schaeffer veio a tornar-se também ela uma autora com seu próprio mérito.

Citações Francis Schaeffer

„O conhecimento precede a fé. Isto é crucial para entender a Bíblia. Dizer como um cristão deveria, apenas pela fé, acreditar em Deus com base no conhecimento é verdadeira fé, é algo que causa uma explosão no mundo do século XX.“

—  Francis Schaeffer

Knowledge precedes faith. This is crucial in understanding the Bible. To say, as a Christian should, that only the faith which believes God on the basis of knowledge is true faith, is to say something which causes an explosion in the 21st world.

„A maior parte das pinturas da crucifixão hoje, como as de Salvador Dali, por exemplo, não são do Cristo histórico morrendo na cruz. Elas usam o Cristo simbólico para exibir o homem em agonia.“

—  Francis Schaeffer

Most of the paintings of the crucifixion today, for example, Salvador Dali's, are not of Christ dying on the cross in history. They are using the Christ symbol to exhibit Man in agony.

„History indicates that at a certain point of economic breakdown people cease being concerned with individual liberties and are ready to accept regimentation.“

—  Francis Schaeffer

How Should We Then Live : The Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture (1976), p. 246
Contexto: History indicates that at a certain point of economic breakdown people cease being concerned with individual liberties and are ready to accept regimentation. The danger is obviously even greater when the two main values so many people have are personal peace and affluence.

„His death there on Calvary's cross is for us individually, but it's not egotistically individualistic. Our individual salvation will one day be a portion of the restoration of all things.“

—  Francis Schaeffer

A Christian Manifesto (1982)
Contexto: His death there on Calvary's cross is for us individually, but it's not egotistically individualistic. Our individual salvation will one day be a portion of the restoration of all things. It is our calling until He comes back again that happy day, to do all we can — while it won't be perfect as when He comes back — to see substantial healing in every area that He will then perfectly heal, and that Wesley did understand.

„Cambridge historians who aren't Christians would tell you that if it wasn't for the Wesley revival and the social change that Wesley's revival had brought, England would have had its own form of the French Revolution.“

—  Francis Schaeffer

A Christian Manifesto (1982)
Contexto: Cambridge historians who aren't Christians would tell you that if it wasn't for the Wesley revival and the social change that Wesley's revival had brought, England would have had its own form of the French Revolution. It was Wesley saying people must be treated correctly and dealing down into the social needs of the day that made it possible for England to have its bloodless revolution in contrast to France's bloody revolution.

„We must understand something very thoroughly. If society — if the state gives the rights, it can take them away — they're not inalienable. If the states give the rights, they can change them and manipulate them. But this was not the view of the founding fathers of this country.“

A Christian Manifesto (1982)
Contexto: We must understand something very thoroughly. If society — if the state gives the rights, it can take them away — they're not inalienable. If the states give the rights, they can change them and manipulate them. But this was not the view of the founding fathers of this country. They believed, although not all of them were individual Christians, that there was a Creator and that this Creator gave the inalienable rights — this upon which our country was founded and which has given us the freedoms which we still have — even the freedoms which are being used now to destroy the freedoms.
