Feb 9th, 2019 by Beliefs
Norman Vincent Peale was one of the most famous ministers of the 20th century as one of the first radio, and later television, preachers. His program "The Art Of Living" aired for 54 years. Peale was very much at the intersection of religion and politics. He was a close friend of Richard Nixon, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Ronald Reagan, and many presidents spoke well of him.
Donald Trump attended his church, Marble Collegiate, with his parents. Both he and his two sisters were married there. Reportedly, he cited Peale as a formative influence on his life.
