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.

    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.
