Program Summary: 18 May 2014

The discussion will be joined at the bottom of the first hour with Frank Schaeffer, New  York Times best-selling author of Keeping Faith about his just released book, "Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God."

From his web site "about" Frank:

Frank is a blogger on Huffington Post and Patheos. He was one of the first Huff Post bloggers and has a significant online platform worldwide. His three semi-biographical novels about growing up in a fundamentalist mission: Portofino, Zermatt and Saving Grandma have a worldwide following and have been translated into nine languages. Pulitzer prize winner and novelist Jane Smiley writing in the Washington Post says this of Frank’s books Crazy For God and Sex, Mom and God: “Schaeffer’s memoirs have a way of winning a reader's friendship...Schaeffer is a good memoirist, smart and often laugh-out-loud funny...Frank seems to have been born irreverent, but his memoirs have a serious purpose, and that is to expose the insanity and the corruption of what has become a powerful and frightening force in American politics... Frank has been straightforward and entertaining in his campaign to right the political wrongs he regrets committing in the 1970s and '80s...As someone who has made redemption his work, he has, in fact, shown amazing grace.”
