"[Schaeffer] was a generalist, and the academic world requires hyper-specialization if you are going to advance there. Schaeffer was interested in the forest. When you spent your entire career studying only one leaf of one tree, Schaeffer will have a hard time satisfying you when he has occasion to mention your tree. But if you want to see the forest for the trees, you need Schaeffer. The sad inability of many Evangelical academics to see beyond the end of their noses when it comes to the significance of Schaeffer's insights, ... is one of the most depressing phenomena of the last half century, and goes far toward explaining why the so-called 'Evangelical Renaissance' has produced such poor results."
