The Simple Faith of Mr. Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World's Most Beloved Neighborby Amy Hollingsworth
The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers focuses on Fred Rogers' spiritual legacy, but it is more than that. It is about a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "preached the gospel at all times; when necessary, he used words."

Some people expound the eternal. Some live it. The insight that the author has of Mr. Rogers is wonderful, she shows how Mr. Rogers lived it. Reading of the time Mr. Rogers stood before that senate committee and the resultant cheers that came up from the audience at the time that it originally happened, and then again at his memorial service as it was replayed on tape, later, almost thirty years to the day that it happened, was just one of the many times that it brought tears to my eyes. Find out who his heroes were. Read the book. Don't be suprised to find that his heroes were children... all of us.
Many thanks to Mrs. Hollingsworth for such a touching tribute to our favorite neighbor. This is, by far, one of my favorite books! Continually inspiring, it serves as a reminder of what is good in this life and the type of people we should aspire to be. PLEASE read it! As always, Mr. Rogers never disappoints!
