Nancy und Richard Pearcey sind damit beauftragt worden, an der Houston Baptist University (USA) ein „Francis Schaeffer Zentrum für Weltanschauung und Kultur“ aufzubauen. In einer Presseerklärung vom 21. Dezember heißt es:
The purpose of the Francis Schaeffer Center is to “promote foundational research and out-of-the-box creative thinking based on historic Christianity as a total way of life informed by verifiable truth concerning God, humanity, and the cosmos,” according to the FSC mission statement.
Nancy Pearcey serves as Director of the Francis Schaeffer Center. Formerly an agnostic, Nancy is Professor and Scholar in Residence at HBU. She is the author of seminal works such as Total Truth, The Soul of Science, and Saving Leonardo, and also serves as editor at large of The Pearcey Report. Nancy was heralded in The Economist as „America’s pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual.“
Courses created by FSC will give students a unique opportunity to work through Nancy’s award-winning books and other foundational resources on worldview and cultural engagement. „Our goal at FSC is to equip students in every major to be critical and creative thinkers,“ Pearcey said. „Under the visionary leadership of President Robert Sloan, Houston Baptist University is moving forward strategically to implement a Christian worldview approach more intentionally and comprehensively across all the disciplines.“
The Center is named for noted author Francis A. Schaeffer, whose work with wife Edith at L’Abri Fellowship in Switzerland won international respect for giving an “honest answer to honest questions.” Time magazine hailed the Schaeffers‘ work as a “Mission to Intellectuals.”
So eine Einrichtung brauchen wir auch im deutschsprachigen Europa.
