KENGOR A POPE & A PRESIDENT
Even as historians credit ­Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II with hastening the end of the Cold War, they have failed to recognize the depth or significance of the bond that developed between the two leaders. Acclaimed scholar, bestselling author, and GCC professor Paul Kengor changes that. In this fascinating book displaying his thorough knowledge of Ronald Reagan years of research, and unique access to Washington insiders, he reveals a singular bond—which included a spiritual connection between the Catholic Pope and the Protestant President—that drove the two men to confront what they knew to be the great evil of the twentieth century: Soviet Communism. Reagan and John Paul II almost didn’t have the opportunity to forge this relationship: just six weeks apart in the spring of 1981, they took bullets from would-be assassins. But their strikingly similar near-death experiences brought them close together—to Moscow’s dismay. Ronald Reagan and John Paul II united in pursuit of a supreme objective—and in doing so they changed history.

SMITH FAITH & THE PRESIDENCY
Religion has been a major part of the presidency since George Washington's first inaugural address. Despite the mounting interest in the role of religion in American public life, we actually know remarkably little about the faith of our presidents. Was Thomas Jefferson an atheist, as his political opponents charged? What role did Lincoln's religious views play in his handling of slavery and the Civil War? How did born-again Southern Baptist Jimmy Carter lose the support of many evangelicals? Was George W. Bush, as his critics often claimed, a captive of the religious right? In this fascinating book, Grove City College Professor Gary Scott Smith answers these questions and many more. He takes a sweeping look at the role religion has played in presidential politics and policies. Drawing on extensive archival research, Smith paints compelling portraits of the religious lives and presidencies of eleven chief executives for whom religion was particularly important. Faith and the Presidency meticulously examines what each of its subjects believed and how those beliefs shaped their presidencies and, in turn, the course of our history.

SMITH SUFFER THE CHILDREN
Written by Grove City College History Department Chairman Gary Scott Smith and his wife Jane Marie Smith, Suffer the Children describes the plight of poor children and provides many practical ways we can participate in one of the most important crusades to improve our world. Most of us feel that we cannot significantly impact the lives of children in need, both near and far, but this book gives concrete examples of how we can improve their lives spiritually and materially. By praying, giving generously, investing and shopping more prudently, and advocating more zealously in the political arena, among other things, we can improve their material situation and open their minds and hearts to the Gospel.
