@ASoulAFire @JaniceOCG In 2014 book #WhyIAmAnAtheistWhoBelievesInGod by @Frank_Schaeffer, he wrestles with faith. Frank is live on Thurs., Jan. 27 at 8 pm ET, w/ “If America Fails?” on the TruthWorks Network YouTube channel, for our discussion on gender issues in The Handmaid’s Tale.
To varying degrees, I think it’s common to have internal conflicts about all sorts of things. As my mother, Loga B. Odom, frequently said, “life is not so much black and white, as it is gray.” Certainly a self-aware person like Frank Schaeffer, (Artist, Filmmaker & Author, Fall in Love, Have Children, Stay Put, Save the Planet, Be Happy), wrestles with his own internal conflicts about faith in his 2014 book: Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to Give Love, Create Beauty and Find Peace. Perhaps you relate, as well.

“Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God,’ is [a] distillation of wisdom.” — Washington Post (June 12, 2014)
“Caught between the beauty of his grandchildren and grief at a friend’s death, Frank Schaeffer finds himself simultaneously believing and not believing—an atheist who prays. In Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God, Schaeffer wrestles with faith and disbelief sharing his innermost debate with the poignant lyricism only a great writer of literary nonfiction can achieve. Schaeffer writes as an imperfect son, husband and grandfather whose adoration of his family, love and art trumps the ugly theologies of an angry God.” — Publisher
