Has anyone seen or read or gotten any info on Frank Schaeffer's new book?
I hear he's got a new one, Patience with God, and am wondering how it fits into the persona he's developing. Frank Schaeffer is such a gifted storyteller, I'm very curious about what he's doing next.

TIA!

1. Haven't read it, but I find him a fascinating person.
Politically progressive, and a convert to Orthodoxy. Could've chosen a "Progressive" church, but didn't. I really think Orthodoxy should, logically, lead to a progressive social ethic, but it doesn't seem to most of the time. It does for Schaeffer, though. So, I find him very interesting.

3. I know a very progressive fellow who calls himself an outright socialist
who was just officially received into the Orthodox church.

I know other people who converted to Orthodoxy, and they all seem to have a mystical bent that can be satisfied nowhere else.

2. I got a copy for Christmas, plan on reading it and a few others I've got collecting dust now that
I'll have some down time. I've only read the prologue so far and I must agree on the gifted storyteller part. I enjoy his writing style in what little I've read thus far.

Have you had a chance to read it yet?
