- "Dough Wead"
(Author of New York Times bestsellers "The Raising of a President "and" All The President's Children)"
"Though every president of the United Stated has thought of himself as a Christian, some have denied various doctrines of orthodox Christianity. Daniel Mount carefully examines each president's religious beliefs and compares those beliefs to the doctrines of biblical Christianity. He discusses their conversion experiences (when applicable), examines how their religious beliefs affected their presidencies, scrutinized their beliefs pertaining to God's role in American history, and looks into important historical controversies. "
"The Faith of America's Presidents ""contains both new and long-forgotten facts about, and statements made by many of our American Presidents. Recently discovered (or rediscovered) information leads to new or modified conclusions about the religious beliefs of Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, James Buchanan, and Richard Nixon. "
"The author uses original sources-letters and firsthand recollections-to offer one of the most comprehensive portrayals of the topic ever written. "

A Fascinating Historical Study of the Faith of American Presidents Oct 20, 2008
What type of faith in God does it take to lead the United States of America? While every president of the United States is a "Christian?" How does their Christianity play out in the historical record and against the various central doctrines of orthodox Christianity? Daniel J. Mount has provided a remarkable effort in THE FAITH OF AMERICA'S PRESIDENTS.
Starting with George Walker Bush, the reader learns detailed and documented background of each president and their faith. Each entry is thoroughly footnoted and documented.
This book makes a lasting contribution to the historical record of American Presidents and I recommend it.
Definitely recommended Oct 12, 2008
This is a book you really ought to have on your bookshelf. It was published in 2007, so the first president in the chapters that work their way backward in time is George W. Bush. The chapters are mostly short, ranging from three to over twenty pages, depending upon the president and his spiritual beliefs and his life experiences. There are extensive bibliographies at the close of each chapter as well.
I found this book fascinating, and it is one that I will return to again and again. It's easy to pluck it off the shelf and read about just one man who led our nation (although most often reading one will lead to two and then three).
