Damaged Heir

Crazy for God
by Frank Schaeffer
Carroll and Graf, 2007
(304 pages, $25.99, hardcover)

reviewed by Jason R. Edwards

A train wreck. The analogy may be used too frequently but rarely more appropriately than in reference to Frank Schaeffer’s new book, Crazy for God. While terrible to view, it is hard to pull one’s eyes away from Schaeffer’s prurient tell-all memoir, written for the voyeur in all of us.
