On this very special edition of Carson's Corner, as part of The Commons Project Network dot com, we welcome back our old friend Frank Schaeffer to Carson's Corner. Frank's new book, WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to Create Beauty, Give Love and Find Peace, is already sending shockwaves throughout the media landscape. Below is a taste of what critics are saying:
“Frank Schaeffer always writes well, but Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God is extraordinary. Somewhere between the sterile, absolute, and empty formulae of reductionist, totalitarian science and the earnest, hostile, excessively certain make-believe of religious fundamentalism, there is a beautiful place. There is room in this place for honesty. For tenderness. For fury. For wonder. For hope. For mistakes. For paradox. For grace. This book is written from that in-between place. It will help you get there too, if you're interested in finding it.”—Brian D. McLaren author/speaker/activist
“A delight and charmer of a read—deft insights, burnished gold probes, arrow hit bull’s-eye again and again.” —Ron Dart (Thomas Merton Society of Canada)
Afterwards, Bob will discuss some concepts from the latest book he read, The Case for Socialism by Alan Maas.
