Why I am an Atheist who believes in God – How to give love, create beauty and find peace.

Frank will speak on subject matter from his latest book “Why I am an Atheist who believes in God”.

“Caught between the beauty of his grandchildren and grief over a friend’s death, Frank Schaeffer finds himself simultaneously believing and not believing in God—an atheist who prays. Schaeffer wrestles with faith and disbelief, sharing his innermost thoughts with a lyricism that only great writers of literary nonfiction achieve. Schaeffer writes as an imperfect son, husband and grandfather whose love for his family, art and life trumps the ugly theologies of an angry God and the atheist vision of a cold, meaningless universe. Schaeffer writes that only when we abandon our hunt for certainty do we become free to create beauty, give love and find peace”.

“As someone who has made redemption his work, Frank has, in fact, shown amazing grace.” — Jane Smiley, Washington Post 

The evening will begin at 6.30pm with a drinks reception featuring live music from UrbanBirds. Frank will speak at 7.30pm.  (Festival seating)
