Overview

"More than any other world leader in recent times, George W. Bush is a man of faith.a conservative Christian who has brought the power of prayer and the search for God's will into the Oval Office. His faith has proven to be a bedrock of strength and resolve during two of the most tumultuous years in our nation's history.According to Newsweek magazine, "this presidency is the most resolutely faith based in modern times. An enterprise founded, supported and guided by trust in the temporal and spiritual power of God."David Aikman, skilled journalist and former senior correspondent for TIME magazine, pens this dramatic and gripping account of Bush's journey to faith."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
For Americans who still believe in the separation of church and state, Bush's presidency has always been problematic. When asked in the Iowa primaries who he most admired, Bush answered, "Jesus Christ, because he changed my life." Pundits were surprised by his willingness to discuss what is generally considered a private matter, believing the candidate had committed political suicide. Journalists compared him unfavorably to other (more obviously devout) presidents and were seemingly perplexed, wondering if Bush was taking a position based on politics or religion. Aikman makes the assertion that Bush's faith is genuine and that he's the most overtly "Christian" world leader in recent times. The author, a former senior correspondent for Time, based this work on interviews and "behind-the-scenes" stories, offering a look at how one man's beliefs influenced a presidency. Like every President from the 1960s to the present, Bush has considered Billy Graham to be a spiritual advisor, crediting him with his conversion. Recommended as interest warrants.-Pam Kingsbury, Univ. of North Alabama, Florence Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
