´´Mom was a much nicer person than her God. There are many biblical regulations about everything from beard-trimming to menstruating. Mom worked diligently to recast her personal-hygiene-obsessed God in the best light.” Alternating between laugh-out-loud scenes from his childhood and acidic ruminations on the present state of an America he and his famous fundamentalist parents helped create, best-selling author Frank Schaeffer asks what the Glenn Becks and the Rush Limbaughs and the paranoid fantasies of the ´´right-wing echo chamber” are really all about. Here’s a hint: sex. The unforgettable central character in Sex, Mom, and God is the author’s far-from-prudish evangelical mother, Edith, who sweetly but bizarrely provides startling juxtapositions of the religious and the sensual thoughout Schaeffer’s childhood. She was, says Frank Schaeffer, ´´...the greatest illustration of the Divine beauty of Paradox I’ve encountered... a fundamentalist living a double life as a lover of beauty who broke all her own judgmental rules in favor of creativity.” Charlotte Gordon, the award-winning author of Mistress Bradstreet, calls Sex, Mom, and God ´´a tour de force.... Sarah Palin, ‘The Family,’ Anne Hutchinson, adultery, abortion, homophobia, Uganda, Ronald Reagan, B. B. King, Billy Graham, Hugh Hefner—it’s all here. This is the kind of book I did not want to end.” 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank Schaeffer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/gdan/000555/bk_gdan_000555_sample.mp3.
