Abstract:

Overview: His faith makes him what he is. Without a doubt, the 2004 presidential election made a statement to the entire world. Mainstream commentators noted that it was the unusually high turnout of born-again Christians concerned over moral values who helped George W. Bush get reelected. Voters who said they regularly attend worship services favored Bush by a nearly 2-to-1 ratio. In the first book to explore the religious ideals and background of the forty-third president of the United States, The Faith of George W. Bush discussed how Bush's spiritual beliefs shape his private life as well as drive his policies and politics. From his devotional time alone each morning to his frequent use of Scripture in his speeches, the president has learned to use his faith to help him live his public and private life. This revealing book, which was on the New York Times bestseller list for fifteen weeks, will inspire others to do the same. "Exit polls from this most recent election show that people voted for Bush primarily for what he believes rather than for his competence. Clearly, they view his faith as a rock of security in the troubled sea of our age. This revised edition features a new preface by Stephen Mansfield; foreword by Ted Haggard, president of the National Association of Evangelicals; and prayers by John Hagee, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, and Stephen Strang, publisher of Charisma House.
