A profound and meaningful testimony of faith direct from the lips of the Great Communicator president Jul 6, 2005
Reagan's God and Country fills in a gap left by many of President Ronald Reagan's biographers, which often overlook, minimize, or even look down upon his strong religious convictions. Author and political campaign consultant Tom Freiling presents portions of every meaningful public address Reagan gave about God, religion, and morality. Each excerpt is a few lines to several paragraphs long, and each refers to a different facet of spirituality and personal convictions concerning tough choices. A profound and meaningful testimony of faith direct from the lips of the Great Communicator president. "If you came upon an immobile body and you yourself could not determine whether it was dead or alive, I think that you would decide to consider it alive until somebody could prove it was dead. You wouldn't get a shovel and start covering it up. And I think we should do the same thing with regard to abortion." - remark to reporter, White House press conference, January 19, 1982.
Let's hear it for the Gipper! Feb 18, 2003
If you have any interest at all in Reagan, you have to read this book. This helps round out the man and his convictions. Although this is a very insightful look at Reagan's religious beliefs and how he was not afraid to share his faith with the public, I still find it hard to determine whether he was a Christian or just a deist. Either way, Reagan was a complex fellow. Just one more thing that was impressive about this great president's administration.
