  • Description
Howard Frankl's God, Sex, Drugs and Other Things begins with three essays on subjects found in the title: one essay on drugs, one on sex, and one on God. The "Other Things" turn out to be Money and Murder, and there is an essay on each of these topics. The book comes to a close with a short epilogue on the reality that holds the whole work together, call it compassion, call it universal salvation, or just call it Love. Writer Ernesto Cardenal calls this "a bold book ... In it are things writers don’t dare say. Only God. And he has said them in the Bible. But since we read the Bible so often, those things don’t shock us. They shock us when someone says the same things in a new way. This is an orthodox book, but to some it will not seem so, because it presents the dogmas with a freshness and originality we’re not used to."

About the Author/Editor

HOWARD FRANKL was raised by a good and devoutly atheistic family and remained a devout atheist until his mid-twenties. Then he had a completely unexpected meeting with God. Months after this revolutionary meeting, Howard was baptized. Now, more than 50 years later, he remains a happy, practicing member of the Catholic Church.
