Publisher's Summary

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, "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, pens this dramatic and gripping account of Bush's journey to faith. Based on interviews and behind-the-scenes stories, you'll learn how:


His life changed after a conversation with Billy Graham on the beach at Kennebunkport
He walked away from alcoholism toward a new destiny
The events following 9/11 caused many to view him as God's chosen man for this critical time in history
His decision to go to war with Iraq became the ultimate test of his faith
A Man of Faith is an intimate look at how Bush's spiritual life has impacted his presidency, the nation, and the world.

A Welcome Alternative

A welcome alternative to a flood of anti Bush literature, without the fundamntalist arguments that tries to assert American moral superiority. The fact that the author is clearly a Bush supporter detracts a bit from the credibility of the book. However, in all very informative and well argued

Focus on the Faith of Presidents

A balanced view which sticks to the topic and does not venture into politics too often. The author is not the greatest reader, but does OK. Nice bonus with sermon given by Bush as Texas govenor. Bush seems sincere about his faith and I have greater respect for his commitment after reading this book. But I voted for Kerry.
