    Bush's spiritual journey

    has led him to massive tax breaks for the richest Americans and the oil industry. Not much for the poor in Bush's value scheme. His spiritual journey led him to an unnecessary war with Iraq, which he has consistently lied about. His most frequent lie is the war makes America safer when our own national intelligence estimates show that it does not. His spiritual journey led him to significantly curb controls of air and water pollution. There is nothing in Bush's spiritual journey that fits the values of Jesus.

    A bit 'Michael Moorized'

    This book gives one an interesting perspective on George W. Bush. He seems to be a man of faith and integrity, but as with everyone there are many more ¿sides¿ of the story. Evangelical pastor Jim Wallis and the people of Sojourners magazine have written some interesting perspectives as well.

    Without Faith It Is Impossible....

    Mansfield's look at George W. Bush's innerspace reveals a man who has been given much and of whom much is expected. The 'call' on his life has obviously led GW to a more intimate religious life than that expressed by previous Presidents' including that of his own father. GW, like many others, especially in his younger years, skirted Christianity, viewing it as a belief system that provided wholesome, family-oriented, morality and something that was like a life preserver on a ship; one could throw it out when there was some sort of a crisis. What GW found out, that his religious beliefs were untried for much of his life. He appeared to be like many citizens who passively viewed the gradual decline in morality with its permissiveness, pornography, rejection of authority, a demise of the family, and abortion, to name a few. Alcohol was a personal issue that he knew he must overcome. The decision to give up alcohol was a major turning point in GW's life. At some point in GW's life, his heritage and his platonic Christian spirituality collided, and he made a decision to 'go with God.' In the Oval Office he once said: 'You know, I had a drinking problem. Right now I should be in a bar in Texas, not the Oval Office. There is only one reason that I am in the Oval Office and not in a bar. I found faith. I found God. I am here because of the power of prayer. The book is the story of a man coming to find his place in the life God planned for him. It will not interest the non-believer, whether it be the political or the religious. It will interest the person who relies on faith...for 'without faith it is impossible...' Reaching for God or reaching for a goal...faith is an ingredient that is necessary. Mansfield did a great job of showing how faith functioned in the life of a governor of Texas who became the President of the United States. It can inspire you, if you are open and if you believe in 'faith.'

    Excellent writing

    Very informative. I was able to understand Dubya better. I found the book brief. Could have written more.

    young college Republican

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Mansfield is an excellent writer and he picked, in my opinion, one of the greatest subjects ever. The topic of this book and the stories told inside prove to me that we truly have a caring, concerned leader at the helm of this ship called America.
