|Frank Schaeffer, SEX, MOM, AND GOD: HOW THE BIBLE'S STRANGE TAKE ON SEX LED TO CRAZY POLITICS -- HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE WOMEN (AND JESUS) ANYWAY. Da Capo Press, 2011.|
Having read Portofino years ago, and laughed her way all the way through it (knowing the humor from the inside!), Marash Girl recognized the author of Sex, Mom & God , and thought, "Oh, good! Another romp!" But this romp, though it kept her laughing, was far more serious and among many other journeys, takes the Religious Right and the home school movement, and traces it back to Christian Reconstructionism begun by no other than the Armenian-American (Frank's words) Rousas John Rushdoony. Who would have guessed. In a very frank (no pun intended) exposee of his life with sex, mom, and God, and not necessarily in that order, Schaeffer keeps the reader alternatively laughing and in anguish as he reveals the history of himself, his family and his faith.
