Speaking of Francis Schaeffer, I ran across this Christianity Today article from 2007 entitled Learning to Cry for the Culture. In it, writer John Fischer shows that Francis Schaeffer’s most crucial legacy was his tears. He writes:

Schaeffer was teaching at Wheaton College about the existential dilemma expressed in Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 film, Blowup, when movies were still forbidden to students. He didn’t bat an eye. He ignored our legalism and went on teaching, because he had been personally gripped by the desperation of such cultural statements.
