Great story even if the writing left a bit to be desired. Worth the read. ( )

Wright's First book, a set of sermons. This book began Wright's writing career and set up the style, themes and even traditions of illustration that continued through the 1920's. Wright was asked to write this because of the dramatic and picturesque nature of his sermons. This is the Burt printing of the 1903 1st edition.Wright went on to be one of the most prolific and best-seller writers of the early 1900's, living in Tucson and writing in the Catalina's. See Mine with the Iron door for his Oracle connection.

A bit scattered, and too preachy. ( )

When I learned in Paul Kengor's book, God and Ronald Reagan, that Reagan read this book when he was eleven years old and cherished it throughout his life, I felt a need to find it and read it for myself.

The author was a minister of a Disciples of Christ church in Kansas when he wrote the book. It was first printed as a serial in the Christian Century, at the time, a Disciples of Christ journal. It was his first book.

The story is about a young man, son of a drunkard, who after his mother died, wound up living in a middle western city. He found work as a printer, secretly fell in love with a beautiful rich girl, and became an active Christian versus just a church member. Because of his poor background he was looked down upon by the religious elite (including the parents of the girl he loved). His natural talents boosted him into leadership positions in the town and because of his faith in Christ and belief in its practical application he prevailed over all sorts of opposition and evil.

I was reminded of John Sheldon's book, In His Steps, as I read That Printer of Udell's.

The book would not be considered politically correct in this day because of its depiction of African Americans, although this is but a small portion of the book. It would also likely be panned for being too simple in its understanding and presentation of the Christian faith. Yet I am glad to have found and read this book, and am happy to recommend it, particularly to those who want to learn more of the literature that influenced Ronald Reagan. ( )

To that friend whose life has taught me many beautiful thruths; whose words have strenthened and encouraged me to live more true to my God, my fellows and myself; who hoped for me when others lost hope; who believed in me when others cold not; who saw good when others looked for evil; to that friend, whoever he is, wherever he is, wherever he may be, I affectionately dedicate this story.
