Overview He was their neighbor, their friend. And for over 30 years, Fred Rogers visited so quietly with the children of America that nobody dreamed he was a Presbyterian minister.

Life Changing Jan 7, 2008
I got this book after reading one of Mister Rogers quote books. It was such a feel good book, I ordered a few more and had them sent to friends.
The Simple Fatih of Mr. Rogers Dec 30, 2007
This is an honest and well written book which includes good examples of how Fred Rogers was the real deal. This book substantiates that there is a way to be a good person in a bad world and that way is through living the Christian faith, leaning on God. Fred Rogers had that kind of faith and was that kind of person.
Worth reading...once Dec 9, 2007
This book is nice, and a great way to remember Mr. Rogers, who evidently was as wonderful a person as could ever be. But it is written from a very personal point of view--so if you are looking for more of a biography or profile of Fred Rogers this is not the one. Some reviewers have complained about the overt Christianity in the book. Hello! He was a minister after all! And a Christian one! Anyhow, the author gives many examples of how Mr. Rogers was never too busy for her and her family, even though they were not close friends. Pretty cool.
Profoundly Moving And Spiritually Uplifting Mar 29, 2007
I once wrote to Fred Rogers, asking him a few questions concerning technical aspects of the show. I did this because I have a job in recorded media, albeit a low-key one.
Anyway, I expected a short reply - if anything - and, knowing how many people in media are, wouldn't have been surprised to receive no reply at all. What I got, instead, was a handwritten three-page letter, pre-printed inserts concerning my questions totalling about 15 pages, and a personally autographed photo.
That's how Fred Rogers was. He cared deeply about the smallest things. He considered every request made of him as a blessing; an opportunity to enrich not only the life of the person asking, but also his own. And Amy Hollingsworth has captured that loving, giving spirit magnificently in this book.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is quite possibly the most spiritually uplifting book I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Please do yourself a favor and buy it. You will not be sorry you did.
The Simple Faith is simply the best Feb 5, 2007
The world lost a great man when Fred Rogers died. We are fortunate that his words of wisdom live on through his many videos and writings and the memories that others like Amy share with us. Thank you, Fred. Thank you, Amy.
