Francis Schaeffer on the Centrality of Christ in Spirituality and Apologetics

Are you the author: 

Historically, some portions of the church have struggled to understand the practical relationship between Apologetics and Spirituality. This was especially prevalent in Schaeffer’s time. He regularly encountered those who were critical of the discipline of Apologetics and saw it as merely academic and conceptual, and likewise often saw Spirituality as something with little relationship to the mind. In contrast, on the other hand, perhaps fulfilling the skepticism of the former, there were frequently those that practiced forms of Apologetics that could be construed as more purely academic and intellectual and arguably, out of touch with the everyday situation of the non-believer.  Schaeffer felt very strongly that Apologetics needed to be brought into the “rough and tumble” world of the common man
