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.

Hey Frank, Haven’t read you much lately, primarily because you closed the comments section. Glad its back open. Some of the comments were interesting. Your video here is very interesting. Never before heard Falwell, Grahm and Barr called narcissists, but I think you hit the nail on the head. Calling Christianity the exact opposite of Narcissism is exactly right.
During my 3rd and 4th decade of my life .personal contacts and discussions with Your parents were instrumental in helping me realize that a person could be “in their right mind/sane” and ;committed to the Eternal Word of God (Jesus. Christ) and think rationally and critically. and create beauty,. This eventually led me out of Protestant Christianity and a “Bible Alone and Faith Alone”. orientation to Life. After extensive study of the Early Church Father’s and Church History prior to
Reformation I became a convert to
Eastern Orthodox Catholic Christianity… I also remember you
speaking at St. Mary’s Orthodox Church in Minneapolis and also I’m reading your book “ Dancing Alone”, that you too had found “the tools” needed to live the Historical- BiblicalChristian Faith.and had converted to Eastern Orthodoxy. Do you still believe in “one holy. catholic and Apostolic Church”?
