Francis Schaeffer Lecture on Apologetics MP3

In this audio, Francis Schaeffer presents a lecture on apologetics, presuppositions, communication in culture, and the line of despair. Although somewhat of a fragment (it’s only part of a group of lectures), it’s a nice audio for getting a feel for Schaeffer’s style, ideas, and approach. Original at SermonIndex. More by Schaeffer here.
Full MP3 Audio here (1hr)
Enjoy.

    I've never heard Schaeffer in audio before. He has an interesting accent. American with a twist of English/Australian. Is there a reason for this?

    For instance, when saying "Half", he says "Harf" (English/Australian) instead of "Hairf" (Nth American).

    Similarly when saying "Path", he says "Parth" rather than "Pairth".

    Toally irrelevant of course, but a curious dialect none-the-less.
