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.

I generally have an iron-clad rule to not read any “real-life stuff” about suffering, death, or anything too heavy. I can watch the news if I want to be depressed. However, I am extremely glad that I made an exception to read Faith of a Father. Frank not only gave my thoughts a voice . . . he made them make sense.
