    Fascinating Subject, Excellent Scholarship

    So many biographies of our 40th President have left the impression that Ronald Reagan was difficult to understand. His official biographer, for one - historian Edmund Morris - was apparently so baffled by Reagan that he had to resort to fictionalizing Reagan's life story when he wrote his book 'Dutch.' But now, thanks to Dr. Kengor's superb and scholarly work, we have a book that begins to uncover the real Ronald Reagan. For the first time, Reagan's many years of public policy pronouncements are comprehensively examined in light of his unwavering faith. For the first time, we begin to understand Reagan's motivations and his make-up as we come to realize that his spiritual life and his public life were inexorably intertwined - and that his religious faith had a tremendous, positive impact on public policy. Whether President Reagan's bold, courageous, and timely public declarations about the malevolent intentions of the former Soviet Union, for example, actually accelerated that country's demise may well have to be left to a thorough examination by future historians. But there is no doubt that President Reagan sincerely believed that his faith compelled him to speak the truth about the evils of communism - something that is commonly accepted today but that no politician before him dared to utter. And there is also no doubt that his 'evil empire' speech, all by itself, lifted the hopes and dreams of so many Christians and Jews imprisoned worldwide by communist governments that, to this day, remain intolerant and afraid of all things religious. Reagan's spiritual beliefs made a real difference. Overall, this is a well written, thoroughly documented, and fascinating study. I am grateful to Dr. Kengor for shedding light on this topic and I look forward to his future works.

    An inspiring story of a President's faith

    Having read several books about President Ronald Reagan which clearly showed his tremendous resolve in taking steps which led to the fall of the Soviet Union and the survival of the freedoms we enjoy in our great country, this book sets forth what propelled Ronald Reagan along this path. Anyone who desires to know and understand Ronald Reagan and his presidency, and why and how he attacked Soviet Communism should read this book.
