Ronald Reagan’s Faith and Attack on Soviet Communism

  • Paul Kengor
Part of the The Evolving American Presidency Series book series (EAP)


Ronald Reagan’s religious faith is a subject that, until recently, has received almost no serious attention. Not until 2004 was a scholarly treatment of Reagan’s faith published.1 Of Reagan’s two best-known biographers, Lou Cannon and Edmund Morris, only Morris gave a certain amount of attention to Reagan’s faith; even then, Morris barely touched the tip of the iceberg. Worse, if Reagan’s faith is mentioned, it is linked to sensational matters like end-times prophecy and the Battle of Armageddon.2
