Francis Schaeffer and the Shaping of Evangelical America

William Edgar on Barry Hankins's new volume, Francis Schaeffer and the Shaping of Evangelical America:
"Amid the growing literature on Francis Schaeffer's legacy, this book by historian Barry Hankins offers a fresh look at the man and his times. While covering a wide range of issues, Hankins is particularly concerned to understand Schaeffer's relation to American fundamentalism. Brilliant, fascinating, provocative, critical, the volume will leave no reader indifferent. I recommend it highly as an important contribution to understanding these defining years in American religious history."
- William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
