Description

I ask myself these questions silently and inwardly: How may I atone for helping to poison America with certainty addiction? How do I defend my grandchildren against the religious right juggernaut I helped create? How do I reject what my parents stood for (fundamentalist fanaticism) and yet honor the love they gave me? How can I help my grandchildren stumble upon the goodness of life before they’re sold towering mounds of brain-damaging garbage? How do I help save the world? (And what kind of deluded messianic fool am I to believe that this is even possible?)

    Like Frank Schaeffer, I am a recovering Evangelical. I went to Oral Roberts University and Pat Robertson’s graduate film program at a time in the 1980s when the sprawling, magnificent “How Should We Then Live?” film series — featuring the late great Francis Schaeffer (Frank’s father) — was THE core humanities curriculum. What a pleasure to follow along in “Letter To Lucy” as Frank teaches his grandchildren about art! And the iBook format — with graphics, video, and music embedded into the pages — is perfect for a new generation hungry for meaning in an increasingly chaotic world. In “Letter To Lucy,” Frank Schaeffer makes a convincing argument that beauty and art are human necessities; not only for educational purposes, but also for a lasting sense of personal fulfillment.
