At first glance, this might seem a rather unusual book to choose on the topic of the Kingdom of God. Tony picked the book up in a store and bought it when he recognized a photo in it. The author,Frank Schaeffer, son of well known evangelical Francis Schaeffer who founded L'Abri, went to the same school as Tony and the book contained a picture of the principal.
The book is Frank's entertaining but negative view of life growing up as the somewhat neglected child of famous evangelical parents. Later in life, howeve, he joined with his father and some others in an attempt to bring about Kingdom principles by political means. The book is subtitled, "How I grew up as one of the elect, helped found the religious right, and lived to take all (or almost all) of it back." Frank eventually turned his back on evangelicalism.
Jesus said, "My Kingdom is not of this world!"
