The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers focuses on Fred Rogers' spiritual legacy, but it is more than that. It is about a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, preached the gospel at all times; when necessary, he used words.
Although he was an ordained Presbyterian pastor, Fred Rogers's most enduring ministry undoubtedly happened in the half hour each day when he spoke gently and candidly to preschoolers via public television. His show, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, was an iconic fixture of American childhood until his death in 2003. For the first time, a full-length book undertakes his Christian journey. The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World's Most Beloved Neighbor explores topics like prayer, the Holy Spirit, forgiveness, honesty, and yes, neighborliness. Author Amy Hollingsworth, a mother with a graduate degree in psychology, spent eight years working in the Christian television industry and first met Rogers when she interviewed him in 1994. What followed was a genuine friendship and correspondence that form the nucleus of this loving tribute. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
