I enjoyed listening to this book, and it was decent enough... but it mostly consists of re-telling Reagan stories that I've heard numerous times before. I enjoyed hearing them again for the nostalgia effect. The big 'twist' to this book is its attempt to spin every seminal event in Reagan's life as having come from the "hand of providence" (God). In some ways, I felt like I was being hit over the head by a 2x4, as the author refused to allow me (the reader) to draw my own conclusions. The author even says in the preface that she hopes that the book will serve as a "witnessing tool" to draw people to Jesus.
I'd say as a bottom line: if you're looking for a more scholarly review of Reagan's religious views and the impact his faith had on his life, read Paul Kengor's "God and Ronald Reagan." If you think the 1980s were the greatest decade of the 20th Century, and you can't possibly get enough of Ronald Reagan, and if you're not too uptight about proselytism, you should enjoy listening to this book.
