Caught between the beauty of his grandchildren and grief over a friend’s death, Frank Schaeffer finds himself simultaneously believing and not believing in God—an atheist who prays. Schaeffer wrestles with faith and disbelief, sharing his innermost thoughts with a lyricism that only great writers of literary nonfiction achieve. Schaeffer writes as an imperfect son, husband and grandfather whose love for his family, art and life trumps the ugly theologies of an angry God and the atheist vision of a cold, meaningless universe. Schaeffer writes that only when we abandon our hunt for certainty do we become free to create beauty, give love and find peace. Available now at Amazon. Want more political videos and commentary?

In 1998, Frank Schaeffer was a bohemian novelist living in “Volvo driving, higher-education worshipping” Massachusetts with two children graduated from top universities. Then his youngest child, straight out of high school, joined the United States Marine Corps. Written in alternating voices by eighteen-year-old John and his father, Frank, Keeping Faith takes readers in riveting fashion through a family’s experience of the Marine Corps: from being broken down and built back up on Parris Island (and being the parent of a child undergoing that experience), to the growth of both father and son and their separate reevaluations of what it means to serve.

Thank you for ….well, sanity . We💙 you, Marcia & Gabe
Thank you Frank – I agree that it is time to re-evaluate our American culture and reconnect with people and nature. Cooking, reading, sharing thoughts and ideas with friends and family are lost arts.
Perhaps this is the silver lining of this enforced time at home. I know that I, who live in Vermont, am communicating much more regularly with my two sons, who live in California. Even responding to your video is not something I would have taken the time to do in a past life. I am meditating again and playing scrabble online with my older son (one who did not have much time for me before cv). Let us hope that this is happening to many people around the world and we will emerge a better species.
