Format: Paperback
Note: For readers with weak stomachs: Reagan's Children is not for you.

Zeiger is the pilot of this uncomfortably honest and turbulent flight of opinion-and you're in the middle seat, suffocated by the only `overweight passengers' on the plane. Zeiger's honesty might compel you to jump out-parachuteless or not.

Contemporary issues are addressed and accompanied by real solutions to real problems. God is talked about and the Bible is cited. Eeks. Zeiger's beliefs and biases radiate off of the pages. Liberals will call it plutonium. Conservatives will call it platinum.

Chronicling the accomplishments of Ronald Reagan and the successes of the conservative movement explain the reason this book was created. Filled with methods of leadership, this book is a guideline for like-minded conservatives who want to engage the public and win over their hearts and minds.

Format: Paperback
Americans who happen to stumble upon Hans' Reagan's Children will be better for it. Hans fills his well-written book with words of inspiration and hope for a promising future. He points to that which is good and right in America; moreover, in his own special way he encourages his fortunate readers to stand up and be an active part of a growing movement of hope, optimism and fulfillment.

And while he's deeply concerned with many aspects of society, Reagan's Children tells of a spreading, positive trend in America today that everyone must work to sustain for our country's well-being. Readers who pick up this book will remember the "make a difference" power each individual American has long after turning the last page. This is a must read for all those who care about their country and need a reminder as to how they fit into the picture. What better way to read about this unique generation than from one of the finest of the "Reagan Children" - read it soon.

Format: Paperback
In today's tense political climate, many analysts have speculated that Reagan conservatism is dying out. Among other things, they point to the popularity of big government Republicans who may seek to lower taxes, but overcompensate through increasing government programs and spending. To Reagan conservatives, the future looks bleak. But in Reagan's Children: Taking Back the City on the Hill, Hans Zeiger looks to the rise of conservative values among young Americans today.

Zeiger has essentially one point throughout the book: there is a resurgence of conservatism and faith among the youth of America today and this should be a great cause of optimism. To make his case, he provides countless statistics, case studies, and anecdotes. He explores the reasons why it's occurring, the historical significance and importance, and how conservative Christians can further strengthen their cause.

Perhaps the greatest value of Reagan's Children is Zeiger's relentless optimism. It's refreshing, and almost shocking, considering the typical doom and gloom rhetoric often put forward by conservative commentators worried about the future of America.

However great this optimism is, though, it is rooted in the book's greatest problem: Zeiger contends that God is calling this generation to change the world and that when Christians take charge of this calling America will continue to be (or return to being) "that shining city on a hill." The problem is that the primary mode for making a difference is through political action. What's missing in the calling of Reagan's Children is the role of the church. It is the church's responsibility to change the world, not a secular government.
