About the Author

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale (1898–1993) was a minister, author, and a progenitor of the theory of "positive thinking". He earned degrees at Ohio Wesleyan University (where he became a brother of the Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta) and Boston University School of Theology. Raised as a Methodist and ordained as a Methodist minister in 1922, Peale changed his religious affiliation to the Reformed Church in America in 1932 and began a 52-year tenure as pastor of Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan. During that time the church's membership grew from 600 to over 5,000. Dr. Peale became one of New York City's most famous preachers.
