Every Day, He Taught God's Message Without Preaching a Word.
He was their neighbor, their friend. And for over thirty years, Fred Rogers visited so quietly with the children of America that nobody dreamed he was a Presbyterian minister. Using puppets instead of a pulpit, this icon of children's television shared with America's youngsters the basic principles of the Christian faith -- forgiveness, kindness, compassion, respect -- and made those values real for his audience. In this poignant audio book, a longtime friend of Mister Rogers reveals how this extraordinary man touched her and her family through years of correspondence -- and takes us beyond the camera to discover the spiritual legacy of a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "preached the gospel at all times and, when necessary, used words."
