I had hopes for Frank Schaeffer s memoir for a couple reasons Like him I grew up in a crazy conservative evangelical milieu although his was far colorful Second it was his father s early books which liberated me from that milieu even though as his son documents Francis Schaeffer was sucked back into the worst aspects of the religious right Frank s father was a genuine paradox a man in love with art and ideas the passion of humanism yet who for complicated personal reasons could never escape the dead weight of fundamentalist obsessions and ended up betraying the very ideals for which his early readers valued him most I m sure there must be many ex evangelicals out there who owe their first taste of intellectual freedom to Francis Schaeffer and who were dismayed to see his weird turn to the anti intellectual rightThis memoir doesn t do the father justice if only because it s mainly about his son who s not nearly as interesting To do him justice Frank comes off as a thoroughly decent guy and as readers of Portofino know occasionally a very funny writer His memoir is brave a bit sad and often boring particularly when he uotes verbatim the memories of peripheral characters Hard not to appreciate his energy and sincerity though So I land in the middle 3 stars
