Overview

Except—Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is a devout Mormon. So what does that mean for Election '08? The road to the White House runs through some very fundamentalist precincts in Iowa and South Carolina, and the national political press will have a field day with some of the more unusual Mormon beliefs.

A Mormon in the White House? is the first book on this intriguing candidate and his unusual faith story. Through exclusive interviews with the governor, his family, and closest associates, mixed with candid conversations with some of the country's leading Christian pastors and shrewdest political observers, Hugh Hewitt sets out to explain Romney, his faith, and the importance of that debate in a headline-making and election-shaping opening shot in the campaign before the campaign.

Editorial Reviews

Hugh Hewitt
… Hewitt is often astute about examining the "Mormon issue" from a range of angles, including a pointed warning that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) might resort to anti-Mormon bigotry if he became desperate. Hewitt also quotes an evangelical Protestant religion professor who claims that voting for a Mormon president "could be a sin." Hewitt warns mainstream Christians that this sort of anti-Mormon rhetoric could backfire someday if one of their own seeks office and faces assaults from secularists. Nor does he target only Romney's foes on the right; he quotes secular writers who've criticized the rationality of Romney's faith and argues that such attacks are un-American.
