Frank Schaeffer's new book comes out November 2nd.
It's been called, "An essential read."
Frank Schaeffer is a friend of The Christian Left. He's an early pioneer in the progressive Christian movement. His memoir 'Crazy for God' is used as a textbook in the history of religion classes and courses in comparative religion and sociology in public and private universities. We call him our historian. He can easily be classified as one of the 'grandfathers' of progressive Christianity.
Every single one of his books is recommended reading. His new book coming out on November 2nd is no exception. "Fall in Love, Have Children, Stay Put, Save the Planet, Be Happy," will captivate you. As one editorial review put it, "Frank makes the bold argument that we should focus on living meaningful lives rather than making money and seeking validation from our jobs. Schaeffer’s argument takes him down paths that will surprise, delight, and even shock readers. This is an essential read."
Even before everything was disrupted by COVID-19 (not to mention by Trump), millions of Americans were already questioning capitalism’s “values.” We were already challenging the idea that your job defines you. We already knew something was wrong. Loneliness, frustration, and alienation were already on the rise. Even the most successful of us felt too busy, too preoccupied, and too distracted to enjoy what we intuitively know are life’s greatest rewards: vibrant relationships, family life, connection to others, involvement in our community, and the thrilling experience of love.
Fall in Love . . . builds a well-researched and entertaining bridge to living happier lives and to a better future. It shows us that based on a better understanding of our evolutionary selves, we can thrive in family life and in our work life, too. But to do both joyfully—and at the same time—depends on rediscovering the priority of relationships, connections, community, and love.
Pre-order Frank's book today. Let's help him with a successful launch in November and send his book up the charts. It's worthy of being a best seller. It's that good.
