Sex, Mom, and God: How the Bible's Strange Take on Sex Led to Crazy Politics - And How I Learned to Love Women (And Jesus) Anyway
With hilarious scenes from his childhood alternating with acidic ruminations on the present state of an America he and his famous fundamentalist parents helped create, Frank Schaeffer asks what the Glenn Becks and the Sarah Palins are really all about.

The central character in this "startlingly honest” (Booklist) memoir is the author’s far-from-prudish evangelical mother, who sweetly but bizarrely provides startling juxtapositions of the religious and the sensual throughout young Frank’s childhood. To quote Max Blumenthal, the author of Republican Gomorrah: "Few writers command Frank Schaeffer’s intimate understanding of right-wing radicalism, and even fewer are able to share their insight as entertainingly and with as much moral weight.”
