This book aims to examine the importance of Christian philosophy in theological education through the prism of the life and teachings of Emile Cailliet. The book's primary focus is on his years of teaching at Princeton Theological Seminary, to which all the authors are connected. This work examines Cailliet as a believer, teacher, scholar, and philosopher. Although Cailliet wrote over twenty books, none of them articulated his formal position on the nature of theological education. However, it is clear from his teaching at seminary and his writings on philosophy, especially Pascal, that he saw philosophy as an integral part of seminary training. We want to preserve his work because he was a seminal but neglected thinker whose influence extends from science to literature and from philosophy to spirituality and theology. We believe that Emile Cailliet was one of the most influential Christians of the twentieth century. We invite the reader to stand in the long shadow of Cailliet and consider how his life and thought can help us tackle some of the knotty questions that face us today. ""Emile Cailliet wonderfully enriched my life. As his teaching assistant at Princeton, I met with him almost daily to garner insights that became foundational for my life and career. This new book powerfully reflects Dr. Cailliet's wisdom, which helped prepare me and scores of others to teach thousands of students. Dr. Cailliet also encouraged me to write, especially two works on Blaise Pascal. I rejoice that Evans and Bartollas's valuable book will be available to bless and guide teachers and preachers in the future."" -Charles Sherrard MacKenzie Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Theology Reformed Theological Seminary ""The authors of and contributors to The Long Shadow of Emile Cailliet have provided a gift to generations of students who did not know Dr. Cailliet. They have given us a glimpse of a man of great faith and great intellect. He emerges in these pages as one who was both a lifelong learner and one who loved God with heart, soul, mind and strength. An example for every generation of those who believe and those who want to believe."" -Rosemary Catalano Mitchell Vice President, Seminary Relations Princeton Theological Seminary Abigail Rian Evans is a Scholar-in-Residence at the Center for Clinical Bioethics at Georgetown University Medical Center and the Charlotte Newcombe Professor of Practical Theology emerita at Princeton Theological Seminary.
