This Friday Night, November 2nd at 8pm EST on Out the Box, Martha Kimbrough and Dionne Hill will co-host a discussion with New York Times Bestselling Author Frank Schaeffer, about his book “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”.  
Frank is the survivor of both polio and an evangelical/fundamentalist childhood. He is the acclaimed author of over a dozen books. One of which is, “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”.  His books have been translated into nine languages, and he has a world-wide following. 
"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...."  —Jane Smiley, Washington Post
This is sure to be a spirited and timely (pre-election) conversation. We hope you plan to join us!
