Takes an intimate look at the man who "gave 'em hell"

In today's day and age, there is a great need for faith-based biographies of important twentieth century men and women. That is why Xulon author Michael Louthian tackled the life of Harry S. Truman, the 33rd president of the United States, in Harry Truman's Successful Presidential Succession: Luck or the Lord? ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-60477-484-9) Long regarded as one of the top ten presidents, Truman was a man whose presidency faced challenge after challenge due to domestic affairs, the end of World War II, and the failing economy.

Louthian's book is an educational and informative quick read that blends American history, the Bible, and humor to capture the essence of the post-World War II president. The use of the atomic bomb on Japan, the struggle for civil rights, and the United States' immediate recognition of the State of Israel and the Cold War are analyzed from a Christian and historical perspective. Additionally, the comparisons to Franklin Roosevelt and George Bush, Truman's letter to music critic Paul Hume, and the greatest upset in the history of American presidential elections are approached from a creative and sometimes humorous perspective.

Says the author, "I have written a one of a kind biography that asks readers to reevaluate their beliefs about God's impact on American history. It is important to evaluate individuals by their heart and not by their physical appearance so we can have leaders who have character instead of people who are characters."
