Hard to understand without a philosophical mindset. ( )

Like a splash of cold water on the face, challenging and so refreshing. Links the lived world with the Bible so that one can be pietist no more. Art, pop culture, philosophy, history -- Schaeffer was a bridge man to show how theology has an alternative and full account of the world. --Found in a small Christian bookshop in Nuku'alofa Tonga Jan 1984, enriched a vacation fabulously.
