Francis Schaeffer’s Christian Spirituality

We welcome William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA, to the program to reflect upon Francis Schaeffer’s life and thought. Dr. Edgar focuses on Schaeffer’s Christian spirituality in Schaeffer on the Christian Life: Countercultural Spirituality, a unique and welcome addition to the literature on Schaeffer. Having spent time with Schaeffer at L’Abri in Switzerland and having been deeply influenced by Schaeffer’s ministry, Dr. Edgar’s book brings a warm tone to a rich and insightful treatment of the Christian life.

You guys waste too much time at the beginnings of your interviews. 56 mins with 14 mins of waste at the beginning.

My complaint though is it leaves too little time for the interview. I want longer interviews. In this one you barely touched on what made Schaeffer’s spirituality unique. You mentioned prayer, but most of the interview was seminary politics of that era.
