Crazy for God by Frank Schaeffer

Book Description

By the time he was nineteen, Frank Schaeffer's parents, Francis and Edith Schaeffer, had achieved global fame as bestselling evangelical authors and speakers, and Frank had joined his father on the evangelical circuit. He would go on to speak before thousands in arenas around America, publish his own evangelical bestseller, and work with such figures as Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, and Dr. James Dobson. But all the while Schaeffer felt increasingly alienated, precipitating a crisis of faith that would ultimately lead to his departure--even if it meant losing everything. With honesty, empathy, and humor, Schaeffer delivers "a brave and important book" (Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog)--both a fascinating insider's look at the American evangelical movement and a deeply affecting personal odyssey of faith.
