At the heart of Francis Schaeffer Studies is the desire to research and pass on the history of Francis and Edith Schaeffer. We regularly acquire materials that are in the public domain to be examined, studied, digitized and preserved for the next generation. Thankfully, we have been able to locate numerous rare items that are not very well known in the Schaeffer community at large. It is a privelage and a passion to explore these new acquisitions and share our findings with you!
"The process of acquiring and organizing Schaeffer materials is foundational to the study, and preservation, of the message the Schaeffers communicated over their lifetimes. It preserves the context, continuity, and development of their message over 40+ years." ~ Jason Schaitel, Co-Founder of Francis Schaeffer Studies, Director of Acquisitions
