Publisher's Description

Tom Brokaw of NBC Nightly News once said of the American icon Fred Rogers, "Mister Rogers was an ordained minister, but he never talked about God on his program. He didn't need to."

Eight years before his death, Fred Rogers met author, educator, and speaker Amy Hollingsworth. What started as a television interview turned into a wonderful friendship spanning dozens of letters detailing the driving force behind this gentle man of extraordinary influence. Educator? Philosopher? Psychologist? Minister? Here is an intimate portrait of the real Mister Rogers.

The Simple Faith of Mr. Rogers focuses on Mr. Rogers' spiritual legacy, but it is much more than that. It shows us a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "preached the gospel at all times; when necessary he used words."

    As parents in the early 70's, we limited television viewing, but Mister Fred Rogers was a welcome guest for our younger children. Thankfully, with DVDs and re-mastering, my young grandchildren also can sing along with "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood."

    In this book, readers are allowed a rare glimpse into the life of Fred Rogers. And guess what? His persona as a gentle, caring person who loved children was authentic on and off the screen.

    The author, however, goes deeper and shows us the man's faith in GOD. Quoting Mr. Rogers, "I'm so convinced that the space between the television set and the viewer is holy ground...and what we put on the television can, by The Holy Spirit, be translated into what this person needs to hear and see, and without that translation, it's all dross as far as I'm concerned."
