Frank Schaeffer’s new novel is now available on Amazon

It’s called And God Said, Billy!, and in my opinion, it’s one of the best things Frank has ever written. The product of 17 years of working out his own salvation with fear, trembling, anger and a radical encounter with grace, the novel is a biting satire of the fundamentalist Christian subculture Frank left behind and a daring plunge into the depths of uncertainty and humility in the face of a God and a universe loathe to divulge their secrets.

I like this novel so much I adapted it into a screenplay, which we are presently shopping around. The paperback is available for just $16.o0 with the Kindle version coming online soon.If you’re a Frank Schaeffer fan, this is a must-read.

Speaking of which, I’ve also been privy to the manuscript for Frank’s next non-fiction book Letters to Lucy, which he composed as a series of letters to his four-year-old granddaughter. Sincere and heartfelt, if you think the outspoken MSNBC version of Frank is all there is to the man, you’ve got another thing coming. No word on a publication date for Lucy yet, but I’ll keep you posted.
