Reagan Tried To Convert Gorbachev To Christianity

This is an interesting story  from the height of the Cold War. Apparently, President Reagan tried unsuccessfully to convert Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to Christianity while they were both in power. From the article, which is based on a new biography about Reagan, only political motives are given for Reagan’s attempt. I’m willing to believe that he was evangelizing for spiritual reasons; although not a church-goer, Reagan was well-known as a believer and he had to know that his attempt could easily backfire politically.
