Overview

Public opinion polls, Ronald Reagan is the most popular of modern presidents, and yet to most biographers the man is still an enigma. This is because, as Brown explains, few have ever focused on this great man's faith. This book explores the life and personality of Ronald Reagan by focusing on his deep-felt Christian beliefs and showing how faith guided him along his distinguished career and led him to his unprecedented success. With the support of Ronald Reagan's own words and writings and firsthand interviews with Ronald Reagan's family, friends, and co-workers, Brown weaves a magnificent story of Reagan's strong devotion to God that will not only inspire Christians to enter public service and allow their faith to motivate all their actions but also help point others to the Cross of Jesus Christ-a cause that was near and dear to President Reagan's heart.

If ever anyone had any interest in President Reagan, this book certainly will give an insight into just who and what made him such an influential man in politics and an admirable man of God. Our country desperately needs a Leader like him during these difficult and trying times.

Poltics, policies and all accomplishments aside, this book exposes the most overlooked facet of what truly made Ronald Reagan a great man: his faith. Within its pages I found great insight into the foundations of what made Reagan so unforgettable and an inspiration to many. From his relationship with his mother who sparked his faith and instilled the strong values and principles he never lost sight of to those he touched this book truly explains the character of a great man. I would highly recommend reading this book before any others on Reagan if you really want to understand his greatness. Reagan was more than just a great president and a great leader. By studying his life it's evident that he was a great teacher and a great human being as well.

Just a wonderful book about the greatest president of our time and his strong belief in the Almighty. This book would be enjoyed by all conservatives and fans of Reagan. It would be good instruction to those who are trying to push God out of our country.

Exciting to see that a woman of prayer so encouraged her son. Well written book, so enjoyable to read with a very intimate look at President Reagan's faith.
