Another Lakeside boy makes good! This seminar reviewed the life of Norman Vincent Peale, an influential mid-20th century pastor with many Lakeside and Ohio connections. Dr. Peale was especially noted for "The Power of Positive Thinking", selling over 5 million copies and still in print. But Peale's work was not without criticism, which will also be part of the description of his enduring legacy in American thought.
