Talk: Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in GOD

Frank Schaeffer visited Google's office in Cambridge, MA to discuss his book, "Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in GOD: How to Give Love, Create Beauty and Find Peace". The book is Mr. Schaeffer's latest set of observations on the human condition and our relation to spirituality, religion, art, and the universe. He was born into a family of prominent evangelicals, and helped found the Religious Right in the U.S. Rejecting that political point of view, he became a vocal enemy of the Tea Party. He has been a film director; a New York Times-bestselling author of fiction and nonfiction; a visual artist whose work has been shown, and collected, around the world.
