By Harold Ivan Smith. Westminster John Knox Press, Eleanor Roosevelt not only was the longest serving First Lady, but perhaps except for Hillary Clinton, she is surely the most influential First Lady in American History. I know that, while I had some sense of her importance as a political figure, not only during her tenure in the White House, but as a delegate to the United Nations, I did not know the extent of her faith.
Her faith, her religion, was broad, liberal, and committed to justice. She was a friend of H. After all, I had read the spiritual biography of Jackie Robinson, in the same series, Thesis margins ucc loved it.
As with the Robinson biography, the author focuses on the connection faith to life. There are likely other more detailed and comprehensive biographies of Roosevelt, but Harold Smith, who is not a historian or a biographer by trade, gives us a readable, thoughtful introduction to her life that puts faith front and center.

Marie Souvestre, a progressive educator, who recognized both the scars inflicted on her by family, and her potential to be more than had been instilled in her. There, she got to travel and grow into a thoughtful young woman. While Souvestre was an atheist she didn't douse her faith, but instead challenged her to examine her faith.
That faith blossomed as she examined it. There is a chronological progression in the book, but the chapters also focus on specific topics, beginning with the development of her own progressive form of Episcopal theology.
