Frank Schaeffer is a New York Times best selling author. His books include Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back and Sex, Mom, and God: How the Bible's Strange Take on Sex Led to Crazy Politics--and How I Learned to Love Women (and Jesus) Anyway. 
Frank is a survivor of both polio and an evangelical/fundamentalist childhood, an acclaimed novelist of 4 novels including Portofino who overcame severe dyslexia, a home-schooled and self-taught documentary movie director, a feature film director and producer of four low budget Hollywood features Frank has described as "pretty terrible." Of Frank's writing Jeff Sharlet writes, "'Crazy For God' is a brilliant book, a portrait of fundamentalism painted in broad strokes with streaks of nuance, the twinned coming-of-age story of Frank and the Christian right." Jane Smiley (The Nation) writes: "'Crazy For God' offers considerable insight into several issues that have bedeviled American life in the past thirty years, and... when taken in conjunction with [Frank Schaeffer's] other works (notably the Calvin Becker Trilogy, ['Portofino,' 'Zermatt' and 'Saving Grandma']), it gives us not only a handle on the mess we are in but also quite a few laughs..." Frank Schaeffer has been interviewed on OPRAH, C-SPAN, (Book TV) PBS, the NEWS HOUR, FOX NEWS, CNN, ABC Nightline, 20/20. He has also been interviewed on just about every major talk radio show in the country and been a commentator on both NPR’s All Things Considered and the NEWS HOUR and Jim Lehrer."
