I have a book about to come out this spring–May 15. Here’s the back cover copy below. I’m self publishing because this book does not fit with my secular publishers or any religious publisher. It will have a significant readership, I think. Also, that way I get to keep the price low: $3.99 on Kindle and $9.99 in print.
Does the jacket copy work for you? Please let me know. Would you like a free copy as an e-file before publication, in return for agreeing to review it on Amazon? Please let me know. Contact me at http://www.frankschaeffer.com/
WHY I’M AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD
How to Create Beauty, Give Love and Find Peace
“As someone who has made redemption his work, Frank has, in fact, shown amazing grace.” — Jane Smiley, Washington Post
“To millions of evangelical Christians, the Schaeffer name is royal, and Frank is the reluctant, wayward, traitorous prince. His crime is not financial profligacy, like some pastors’ sons, but turning his back on Christian conservatives.” — New York Times
“Frank Schaeffer’s gifts as a writer are sensual and loving. He’s also laugh-out-loud funny!” — Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog
Caught between the beauty of his grandchildren and grief over a friend’s death, Frank Schaeffer finds himself simultaneously believing and not believing in God—an atheist who prays. Schaeffer wrestles with faith and disbelief, sharing his innermost thoughts with the lyricism that only great writers of literary nonfiction achieve. Schaeffer writes as an imperfect son, husband and grandfather whose love for his family, art and life trumps the ugly theologies of an angry God and the atheist vision of a cold, meaningless universe. Schaeffer writes that only when we abandon our hunt for certainty do we become free to create beauty, give love and find peace.
