Book Review: The Faith of Ronald Reagan

Mary Beth Brown, in her book The Faith of Ronald Reagan, shares a side of President Reagan that many people have not known much about; his faith.  Brown shares how his faith influenced his life and his decisions.  We are shown a humble man with strong beliefs who did what was right because it was right, not for political gain.

Proverbs 22:6 says Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.  President Reagan is evidence of this.  What an encouragement to Mom's everywhere!  From a humble childhood to Hollywood and than on to the White House, President Reagan represents that anyone can be successful in the United States.  That for any child, anything is possible. 

I did not know much about President Reagan before picking up this book.  I now have a better understanding of our 40th president.  I have great respect for him, as he strove to do what was right, not what was easy.  I enjoyed reading about his childhood and how he became interested in politics.  I feel like a lot of time was spent on his childhood.  Some parts felt repetitive and may not have needed to be there.  It is a very easy to read book. If you are interested in learning more about Ronald Reagan, then this is a great choice!
