Frank Schaeffer, author of the New York Times best selling memoir, 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, joins us to discuss his fiery evangelical past.
Church and State: The Role of Spirituality in Politics, Hammer Museum
Run Time: 1 hour, 43 min.
The son of theologian Francis Schaeffer, Frank came of age with the Christian right, growing up in an evangelical/fundamentalist world with Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson at the kitchen table. He eventually broke ranks with the powerful political/religious movement that influences the Republican Party and will provide us with his unique insights as he searches for a meeting place for what he calls "the scattered refugees of The Church of Hopeful Uncertainty."
