not yet rated|write a review
Frank Schaeffer has a problem with the New Atheists. He also has a problem with the religious fundamentalists. The problem is that he doesn't see much of a difference between the two camps. Sparing no one and nothing, including himself and his fiery evangelical past, and invoking subtleties too easily ignored by the pontificators, Schaeffer adds much-needed nuance to the existing religious conversation as he challenges atheists and fundamentalists alike.

Editorial Reviews

TheBookWeb.com, 11/23/10 “[Schaeffer] is a religious riddle wrapped in an enigma inside a conundrum…A compelling read for anyone who has wondered if there is no God and for everyone certain that there is.”Santa Fe New Mexican, 12/3/10 “Patience with God is the middle ground between Rick Warren and Christopher Hitchens, a measured alternative to what has begun to feel like strictly black-and-white arguments that conflate religion with politics, assume all Christians have identical beliefs, and seem to require all Americans to make a dichotomous choice between moral tradition and Godless progress…Schaeffer’s voice is casual but firm. You don’t have to agree with him, but he isn’t easily dismissed.” Acadiana LifeStyle, December 2010 “Whether you’re an atheist or fundamentalist, or something in between, you’ll find many thought-provoking ideas in this volume…An interesting look at religious beliefs from all angles.” Bad Catholic blog, 12/30/11 “Frank takes no prisoners when it comes to Evangelical Fundamentalists…[His] books fall into the same category as drinking straight Bourbon whiskey. It’s an acquired taste which some may find too strong to tolerate. Reading Patience With God is like sitting down and having a long rambling talk with good old Frank who is brilliant but is also something of a crank. I loved it and can’t recommend it highly enough.”Financial Times, 3/14/11 “This beguiling ramble of essay and memoir is worth the effort.”
