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.

From the Publisher:

"As a lifelong liberal democrat, it's a pleasure for me to see Frank Schaeffer turn his back on the extreme religious right here, but it is a far deeper pleasure to go where this painstakingly honest and courageous memoir really takes us, into a finely nuanced exploration of how easy it is to lose one's way and how difficult it is to find one's true direction home. We are fortunate that Frank Schaeffer's path has taken him from the rigid fundamentalist thinking of his youth to where he is now, working not in stark black and white, but in the blessed gray from which true art arises. Crazy for God is a brave and important book."--Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog
