Barack Obama. The speculation about his religious life abounds. Is he a closet Muslim? Is he really a Christian? Does his faith have anything to do with his governing? As the picture of President Obamas faith has emerged over recent years, questions about the foundation of his beliefs continue to ignite debate. In this updated edition of his international bestseller The Faith of Barack Obama, Stephen Mansfield explores the claims of Obamas detractors and supporters alike, while examining how the challenges of the presidency have shaped Obamas religious beliefs.
This evenhanded account of the presidents spiritual life provides a closer look at the people and events that have influenced his belief system. Mansfield analyzes Obamas friendship with the controversial Jeremiah Wright and also profiles the Christian leaders who have offered guidance and support during the presidents challenging term.
Mansfield takes you inside the religious life of Barack Obama, introducing you to the type of preaching the president hears at Camp David and even revealing details such as the content of the daily devotional readings the president receives on his cell phone. This fascinating study explains the faith elements within Obamas politics, while acknowledging the questions about his beliefs that remain unanswered.
"You must read this perceptive and well written book. Then you will know why Barack Obama has such a passion for justice and equity, such a gift for filling people of different generations with a newfound hope that things can and will change for the better." ?ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU
