The Faith of Ronald Reagan by Mary Beth Brown

_140_245_Book.350.cover Explore the life and personality of President Ronald Reagan through the lens of his deep-felt Christian beliefs.

With warmth and insight, Mary Beth Brown delves into the spiritual journey of America’s 40th president and offers profound stories of God’s providence in Ronald Reagan’s life—from first making it as an actor to winning the presidency, from surviving an assassination attempt to eventually changing the face of world politics. With the support of Reagan’s own words and writings and firsthand interviews with his family, friends, and co-workers, Brown weaves a magnificent story of Reagan’s quiet, strong devotion to God, sure to both inform and inspire.

Timed for the Reagan centenary in 2011 and released in a season of intense political unrest, The Faith of Ronald Reagan is strikingly relevant for today’s reader.

Heidi Says . . . I passed this book along to Ashley to read and review for me as she showed an immediate interest in it and it was a great resource for her to read for school. Here is her thoughts . . .

Ashley’s 2 cents . . . I really enjoyed reading this book. I found it very interesting all the things that were said about Ronald’s faith in the Lord. Although he didn’t make it completely known and didn’t shove it down people’s throats, he was a great Christian, who showed his faith through the way that he acted. I loved all the quotes that were given in the book, and learned  a lot about the man from this short book. I really enjoyed it.

If you are interested in Ronald Reagan and enjoy reading biographies, I think that you’d really enjoy reading this book! It was well-written and a great read.

My husband wants to read this (I do too)...we've been reading presidential biographies this year and have learned so much. We both read a bio on George Washington that was excellent. Our knowledge of the presidents is minimal so I'm enjoying the bios. Thanks for the recommendation!
