With gripping honesty, Frank explains the weave of the trauma of his youth and his quest for truth. Faith and the narrative of Christ surface as true, good, and beautiful. Rarely does someone write with such clarity and vulnerability. Tears came to my eyes many times as I read—tears of sorrow and of joy. Readers will be inspired to dive more deeply into their own story and emboldened to wrestle intelligently against fallacious and faithless theologies. Frank’s vulnerability is a gift—to his family . . . and his readership.
Rev. Beth Case
Pastor for congregational life & care, First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
In his book, Frank is writing much more than an autobiography. As an experienced and godly mentor, he’s laying out a pathway to inner healing and maturity from a background of dysfunction. His book is a powerful combination of transparency, honesty, integrity, and insight. It is presented with understanding, wisdom, compassion, grace, and spirituality. Frank leaves us with the same strategy, message, and hope expressed by the apostle Paul: “What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you” (Phil. 4:9 ESV).
