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

This is the story of Frank Schaeffer, who grew up in a famous community founded by his parents; Switzerland's L'Abri; an idealistic mecca for spiritual seekers worldwide. By the age of twenty-three, he had directed two multi-part religious documentaries (which are still required viewing at thousands of schools and churches in the English-speaking world) and had helped instigate the marriage between the American evangelical community and the anti-abortion movement. But as he spoke before thousands in arenas around America and published his own evangelical bestseller Schaeffer felt alienated, precipitating his own crisis of faith and eventually resulting in his departure.
