A Word in Season for Us All

Udo Middleman, close associate, fellow pastor, and friend of Francis Schaeffer, describing Schaeffer:
He was not slick. He revolted against false appearances of leadership, growth statistics, and any show, in which he saw the dangers of pretense, performance, and praise of men. He had been there and found it dishonest, dangerous, and finally condemning.
--Francis Schaeffer, No Little People (Crossway, 2003), 14
