L’Abri

World Magazine | World News | Christian Views

A short article on the community of faith, L’Abri that was started by Francis Schaeffer. Sadly, he has gone home already.

I remember my first exposure to Schaeffer. Through reading his books. They always had something to do with art, and I loved books with pictures, especially those with Western pictures. And the nice thing was that it became my first exposure to philosophy.

From there my life history branched out into two directions. One was that I began to adopt a particular style of thinking about Christian concepts. Another direction was that I became interested in philosophy.

I think I have read most of his books that I could find in my house. There is one particular book that I like very much: The God who is There.

My greatest wish would be to be able to speak with him. I guess that is every christian geek’s dream. 😛 I am no exception. Recalling those times, I was one of a kind. Nobody around me had any remote interest in Schaeffer. Like my mother would say, “Philosophy isn’t everybody’s cup of tea.”

Francis Schaeffer is one of those people who impacted my life (via his writing) a lot. There are others of course, but I think he was the most important one.

Feeling nostalgic all of a sudden.
