Militia groups have always been around in America. Do the Christian militia groups pose a particular risk? Are they looking to bring about the second coming of Christ? Do some believe that America is the promised land and has special favor with God? Join us as we discuss Christian militias and the week in politics. Frank Special guest will be Frank Schaeffer author of 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 Published by Da Capo Press 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. Also joining us is the Dr. Rev. Steve Poos-Benson of the Columbine United Church. Dr. Poos-Benson spoke at the ceremonies commemorating the Columbine High School Shootings.
