My Journey Out of the Religious Right, a public lecture by Frank Schaeffer

April 8th 2013 - 7:00pm

Frank Schaeffer, son of conservative theologian Francis Schaeffer, grew up in Switzerland in a Christian community founded by his parents. As a young man he followed in his father’s footsteps, eventually becoming a public face and voice for fundamentalist Christianity in the American political arena. In the 1980s Schaeffer’s core values began to shift in a more liberal direction. He formally broke from the Religious Right, though not from Christianity, and became an outspoken critic of conservative positions on issues such as abortion and women’s rights.
Today, Schaeffer is an acclaimed writer and political commentator. Among his many media appearances are interviews with Rachel Maddow, Terri Gross, and Oprah. His books include three memoirs, among them Sex, Mom, and God (2011); novels such as Baby Jack (2006) and Zermatt (2003); and more than a half dozen nonfiction works on topics such as faith in a progressive society and the American military, including the bestselling Keeping Faith: A Father-Son Story about Love and the United States Marine Corps (2002).
