At The High Calling, Christine Scheller remembers an unlikely mentor:
Ours was an unlikely pairing on the surface. Me: an evangelical Christian, one-time homeschooler, pro-lifer. He a secular Jew, pioneering New York City public television host and station co-founder, long-time president of the Motion Picture Association’s ratings board.
What we had in common was Rutgers University, where he taught for 50 years and where I studied as an adult student in the 1990s. I initially didn’t think much of his class, with its senior citizen professor and reading list of books written before 1950.
