Waldenström’s unlikely pupil (Fall/Winter 2022)

Many who have grown up in an environment cultivated by the Swedish free-church movement have heard of the preacher Paul Peter Waldenström (1838-1917). While many might even be able to recall his central question of “Where is it written?,” it is virtually impossible to find much discussion of the connection between Waldenström and his most famous pupil. And no, I do not mean David Nyvall or other religious leaders.
