I used to live in Fulton, Missouri, the city where Winston Churchill gave his famous Iron Curtain speech. I've been to the local museum, studied his life, and as a newspaper reporter, interviewed people who witnessed his speech. Thus I was excited to read Christian Encounters' Winston Churchill.

This book is a great summary of important dates, people, and events in Winston Churchill's life. It provides a peak into the spiritual life of Winston Churchill. As a future homeschool dad, I think this will be a great resource when studying his life. However, currently as a parent of small children, I frequently had to stop reading and found it difficult to pick up where I left off. This is not a long book but it took me a while to finish.

I've come to greatly respect Winston Churchill, and this book affirmed my beliefs that he was an honorable and courageous man.
