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.

After all, I had read the spiritual biography of Jackie Robinson, in the same series, and 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.
His specialty is spirituality, and that shows up regularly in the book. In the end, we encounter a person of deep faith who is committed to justice and peace in the world.

I was amazed to learn that she kept a Book of Common Prayer close by, throughout her life, but also memorized the New Testament in French.
So, she knew her Bible, probably better than most of her critics. Things got better during adolescence, but that was due to spending time at the Allenswood School in England, which was led by Mlle. 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.

Jesus always seemed to have an answer for his critics. Usually, he drew his answers from Scripture. In this case he turned to Hosea 6, where God declares: “I want mercy and not sacrifice.” Jesus used that text against his critics, telling them that he was supposed to minister to sinners and not the righteous.
