About the Author:

Recognized internationally for his work in Christianity and culture, Francis A. Schaeffer authored more than twenty books, which have been translated into a score of languages and sold millions worldwide.

Schaeffer, and he is the former Chairman of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. Dr. Dennis serves as the Chairman of the ESV (English Standard Version) Bible Translation Oversight Committee and as the Executive Editor of the ESV Study Bible. Lane and his wife, Ebeth, live in Wheaton, Illinois.

From AudioFile:

A twentieth-century classic on Christian morality gets the treatment it deserves as Kate Reading presents the historical sweep of Schaeffers perspective. Like a lock pick to the fetters so willingly worn by many Christians, Schaeffer frees the listener to engage with secular culture--but from a solid Christian worldview and with historical precedents. Kate Reading tackles the text with aplomb, soldiering through German, Greek, and French names without sounding like shes gargling marbles. As Shaeffer weaves seemingly disparate strands of ancient, Renaissance, and modern cultures, Reading makes the listening experience inviting and challenging. Whether youre a Christian seeking direction or a listener who wants to satisfy your curiosity about Schaeffers ideas on right living, this book delivers. S.M.M.
