Advance Praise For Patinece With God

Patience With God -- Faith For People Who Don't Like Religion (Or Atheism) will be in Stores by Oct 20 or pre-order now at:

"Frank Schaeffer is a patient writer but a passionate one too. This beautiful argumentative and even funny book is popular theology at its best, an explanation of tradition and its absence from a man who has lived both, a writer who knows better than most that God -- whether you do or don't believe -- is always a brilliant story."
Jeff Charlet, New York Times best selling author of The Family.

"Ever feel straitjacketed by the Church? Convinced that God can't be put in a box? You've got to read Frank Schaeffer's explanation of why you're not alone, and how contradictions can be a paradox to be celebrated.&nb sp;You'll be intellectually challenged and spiritually heartened by his life story and lessons learned."
Richard Cizik, President, The New Evangelicals, Fellow, The Open Society Institute

"Patience With God does more than celebrate the gift of paradox-it's a feast for those hungering for something truly greater than themselves and their own ideas."
Charles E. Moore, editor, Provocations: The Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard

"With remarkable skill Schaeffer exposes the flaws of fundamentalists and atheists alike, only to reveal the true meaning of faith."
Patricia Fernández-Kelly, Princeton University

"Patience With God gives us voice, it validates our experiences, it starts a conversation-one that has been needed for a long, long time."
John F. DeFelice, University of Maine at Presque Isle

"Patience With God presents an alternative that we would do well not to ignore. It is an appeal for sanity, compassion, tolerance, and authentic spirituality."
Reverend Antony Hughes, St. Mary Orthodox Church, Cambridge, Massachusetts

"A meditation on the follies of religious and atheist fundamentalism . . . [Schaeffer's] criticisms . . . are on target."
Kirkus Reviews
