Schaeffer's latest book is a memoir: Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of it Back. It tells of his experience growing up as the son of Francis and Edith Schaeffer, known for their writings and their intellectually-leaning Christian community in Switzerland, L'Abri. Frank joined his father on the evangelical speaking circuti before becoming disillusioned with the religious right. He is now a regular contributor to the Huffington Post as well as to several newspapers. He is also the author of three semi-biographical novels, Portofino, Zermatt, and Saving Grandma, and the nonfiction besteller Keeping Faith: A Father-Son Story about Love and the United States Marine Corps.
