I found this book very interesting. I love reading about famous people. The book goes back to before he was born to current time. I learned a lot about him. The struggles he had in life and accomplishments. His faith in God helped him. How when he wasn't close to God things were not the best.
Our country needs more men like him. That believe in putting God first. Even telling his wife ( per the book) before they were married that God would be first in his life. That she would be second.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit. This review is my own opinion.
nkwbookreviewer5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful book!August 25, 2019nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Vice President Mike Pence is quoted in author Leslie Montgomery's book saying "I'm a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order." My heart warmed when I read that. Author Montgomery did an outstanding job with this biography focusing on faith which Mr. Pence has unquestionably.
There are eighteen chapters in this open, frank book on the Vice President. I was not expecting so much scripture. It was a pleasant surprise. It is obvious that Mike Pence is a man of great faith. In my humble opinion he should be praised for that and not ridiculed or scoffed.
I liked the author's easy style of writing. She had notes to back up her facts. The book was excellently planned and organized. I learned a lot of things about Mr. Pence. He was named after his maternal grandfather for one. He tells the complete story of his faith from being a young child in a faithful Christian home to being a straying teen and finally coming back to the Lord.
This is an uplifting, encouraging true story filled to the brim with faith. It will give readers a clearer view into the heart of Mike Pence. I loved it and would highly recommend it. Everyone should read it to get to know our Vice President better. It definitely gets a 5 star rating. Celebrate Lit provided a copy but these are my honest thoughts.
vics495483 Stars Out Of 5Good bookAugust 22, 2019vics49548Quality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2After reading this book I have an even higher regard for Mr. Pence. I appreciate his deep faith that goes hand in hand with his love for others. In today's politics, I'm sure it's difficult to allow your faith to guide you.
In this book you'll read about Pence's journey as a Christian, a husband, and a politician. There are interviews with many people who esteem him highly. Yet I appreciate that Montgomery didn't write about him as if he's perfect. We see flaws in a man who deeply wants to follow Christ. And while his political beliefs are touched on, this book his about his spiritual journey as a believer.
I will say that because of the style of the book, and maybe the author's writing style, there were times this book was dry, almost as if Ms. Montgomery was just stating facts, and I felt it was very simplistically written. But that is my personal viewpoint. Others may enjoy this style of book. All in all it was interesting and refreshing.
I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.
Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5Really enjoyed thisAugust 21, 2019MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Let me just say, if Mike Pence runs for President he has my vote. I wish I would have known more about him before the presidential election, not that that would have changed my vote but it would have made me feel more confident about it.
If you want to get to know our vice-president more this is a book I definitely recommend. Even if you don't agree with him politically hopefully you would agree with him spiritually.
I got tears in my eyes I read about him becoming VP after reading his whole journey. It is so God and I think it's wonderful the President Trump choose Mike as his running mate.
A copy of this book was given to me through the Celebrate Lit Team. All opinions are my own.
Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyed Getting to Know the Vice PresidentAugust 20, 2019Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleOne of the biggest pulls for me towards the current President during the past election was the Vice-President. When I saw this book, I knew I wanted to read it, and get to know more about this man.
I have to say I was not disappointed!! Vice-President Mike Pence is a very impressive man! Reading about his life was interesting and inspiring. The author does a great job at portraying him as a down to earth man, who just does his best to live for the God he loves. That is what really impressed me the most. I like that he loves his family, makes an effort to prioritize his wife and children. He values family! I was impressed with the stand he takes for the cause of Christ and not allowing pressure and politics to override his beliefs and the foundation of the Word of God he stands on. I can only imagine the pressure to bend, fit in, do the run of the mill stuff with everyone else. However, this book points out a man who seeks like Solomon to govern people well, in the wisdom of the One who created him.
All that being said, Leslie also doesn't portray him as perfect, and none of us are. So if she did, I would have second thoughts on this book, as though maybe she were building him up too much. Overall, this book does a great job of portraying the Vice-President in a different light than what the media chooses. Leslie writes it in an easy to read way, in a time line manner beginning with the Vice President's parents and heritage.
I would highly recommend this book, especially if you just want to know the Vice President more personally and understand the whys about what he does and what he stands for. It was very enlightening and I am going to be encouraging my teenage son to read it. I received a complimentary copy of this book courtesy of Celebrate Lit and the Publisher. All opinions are my own. I was not asked to review this book positively.
