I borrowed this book from the library.
In "The Faith of Barack Obama," "New York Times "bestselling author Stephen Mansfield takes readers inside the mind, heart, and soul of presidential hopeful Barack Obama--as a person of faith, as a man, as an American, and possibly as our future commander in chief.""
I enjoyed reading this account of our President’s faith. I believe President Obama’s path to Christianity shows God’s hand. Here he was raised by a mother who was an atheist but taught him to respect all religions and people’s differences. He was a lost soul. President Obama says he didn’t fit in with African-Americans or with the white population. He didn’t even have a faith to call his own. It wasn’t until he stumbled into a Christian church on the east side of Chicago did he find the peace he was always looking for. He found something bigger than himself to say he was part of. He could call himself a Christian.
Stephen Mansfield did a fine job of telling a story of our president’s faith and stitching the president’s background story so you can get the full picture of who President Obama truly is. If you are curious about the faith our president, or are one of the population who believes the president is a Muslim, I recommend reading The Faith of Barrack Obama by Stephen Mansfield.
