Stephen Fox wrote:Molly Worthen does not hate Francis Schaeffer. Only the most thin skinned chip on the shoulder fundy would read Molly in context and come to that conclusion. She does talk about the exchange he had early on with Mark Noll, and find him on the whole to be full of "bluster". At one point she refers to him as a "demagogue". Roger Olson interprets it all as Molly dismissing FS as a "charlatan".
Pseudo Intellectuals like Worthen can't stand Shaeffer because he can match wits with them, and his arguments and scholarly foundation for evangelical, conservative Christianity blows holes in their position.
Read Schaeffer, Stephen. It's obvious you haven't.
