Podcast: Frank Schaeffer Interview


My 12-14-08 "Religious Talk" radio interview with Frank Schaeffer (28 MB MP3). Frank is the son of the late Francis and Edith Schaeffer. He is the author of several novels and books and the producer of the "How Should We Then Live?" and the "Whatever Happened to the Human Race" film series. We talk about his latest book, "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."

My interview picks up where Terry Gross's Fresh Air interview with Frank for NPR left off. We talk about his and his father's involvement in the fundamentalist takeover of the Southern Baptist Convention, about their relations with Christian Reconstructionists, and about statements in his book regarding Billy Graham's family.
