I ask myself these questions silently and inwardly: How may I atone for helping to poison America with certainty addiction? How do I defend my grandchildren against the religious right juggernaut I helped create? How do I reject what my parents stood for (fundamentalist fanaticism) and yet honor the love they gave me? How can I help my grandchildren stumble upon the goodness of life before they’re sold towering mounds of brain-damaging garbage? How do I help save the world? (And what kind of deluded messianic fool am I to believe that this is even possible?)
Great Book. Terrible Format
Loved the book. It was very relatable and spoke to many of my life experiences. The format however is terrible. It just looks like someone uploaded a pdf of the book. It’s not practical to read on a phone or tablet.
Wonderfully written, brilliant use of multitouch
A great read, but just as important a masterful use of of the iBook/multitouch medium to further the story. The design engages and invites deeper exploration. Well done.
The absolute best iBooks experience I have ever had.
Equal parts memoir, pop culture commentary, defense of truth, beauty and creativity, and history of the art and politics of western civilization, author Frank Schaeffer’s Letter to Lucy: A Manifesto of Creative Redemption—In the Age of Trump, Fascism and Lies is an absolute revelation and a salve for our troubled times. I found myself putting it down after I’d finished a section because I wanted to savor what I had just experienced before excitedly picking it up and diving in again. At 435 pages, the book is incredibly dense with information, and the beautiful layout and stunning use of text, music, video and images make discovering the totality of this book an unparalleled delight. It really is a touch of magic.
