Thomas Nelson The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World's Most Beloved Neighbor

* For more than 30 years, Fred Rogers was the kindly neighbor of children worldwide. Why were kids drawn to him? Mining personal interviews and correspondence, Hollingsworth goes beyond Rogers's gentle manner and signature red sweater to reveal the deep faith that sustained him in his many roles---television personality, educator, philosopher, and minister. 224 pages, softcover from Nelson.

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."
