Francis Shaeffer

Posted by Mike on October 6, 2008

As someone who grew up in the middle of the Christian fundamentalist movement and later leaving the faith, I’m always drawn to the writings of those who did the same and believe me it’s a pretty small number. But one particularly important figure is Frank Schaeffer, the son of evangelist Francis Schaeffer, who blogs at the Huffington Post. He continually writes from a perspective few people have on this form of belief. This is his latest post (and you can find others by clicking on his name). Schaeffer’s a good example of a man who’s managed to dump a lot of the irrational beliefs of the fundamentalists without giving up his faith entirely. This is the very definition of a brave human being. I’d love to see him on Maher’s show.
