Overview

THAT PRINTER OF UDELL'S....A CHRISTIAN NOVEL! A BOOK THAT INFLUENCED THE LIFE OF RONALD REAGAN AT ELEVEN YEARS OF AGE. A REALLY GOOD READ! 355 PAGES IN PRINT!

The story follows the path of young Dick Falkner, whose mother is dead and whose father is a drunk. From a very young age, he makes his own way in the world, until he finds himself looking for work among the "kind" Christian people of Boyd City.

Unfortunately, their hypocrisy is all too clear to him; they go to church and nod their heads as the pastor preaches goodwill to all men, but their lives reflect that of self-centered socialites. Disgusted, he applies for work from a man who, like himself, sees the falsity of the church people.

In time, the people of Boyd City, with young Dick as their catalyst, slowly begin changing that first impression that he had formed of them. More and more, the young people start reaching out with ideas to change things for the better in their city, and before too long many of the older folks are engaged in helping their fellow man as well.

Any political junkie or political scientist who wants to understand Ronald Reagan the man and the politician must start with this book. Young Reagan read it when he was 11 years old and promptly decided that he wanted to become an evangelical Christian, informing his Mother that he wanted to be baptized. Reagan obviously identified with the protagonist of this story who like Reagan was the son of an alcoholic father who through the power of faith became a better man and works to change his community through his church. The book concludes with his marching off to Washington to assume a political career. Sound familiar?

That Printer of Udell's is easily the best balance and voice of what it means to be a human. The book utilizes the trials and challenges we face in every decision into the character we become when we are older. It shows that a person of complete low and poor could become a successful and honorable person, or a person born into wealth and riches could become a dirty and disgusting, terrible person. A book that depicts the real journey into depths of what a person goes through every choices and how it affects the ending of our life, which then gives up to the favorable and judgement of God.
