Former evangelical Christian political activist Frank Schaeffer takes a long, hard look at fundamentalist atheists as well as religious zealots. Drawing comparisons in their battle for followers in the world today, he is scathing in revealing their blatant commercialism and fear-mongering. Schaeffer speaks from experience, as the child of fundamentalist missionaries, who as an adult became part of the evangelical/fundamentalist political scene until he could stand it no longer.
Schaeffer is now a follower in what he calls the “Church of the Hopeful Uncertainty,” worshipping God rather than the Bible itself, and finding great beauty in the music, art and liturgies of the Church. He offers hope for many who seek a more generous and inclusive faith, and who are looking for a
new way to interpret and make meaning of the God-experiences that enrich their lives every day.
