Marketing Description Discover the unapologetically Christian and liberal Barack Obama-and how he represents the changing face of religion in American politics.
You'd have to live in a cave to have avoided hearing about Barack Obama's woes as he deals with the crises arising from the close mentor relationship he had with the senior pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. How, people ask, could Sen. Obama represent as president people of all races, when he attended for 20 years a church permeated by a defining, if understandable, spirit of anger toward white America? There is, however, much more to the senator's faith than this one issue. As early as 2004, as he delivered a powerful speech to the Democratic National Convention in Boston, he was taking a stand for his faith: "We worship an awesome God in the Blue States." In The Faith of Barack Obama, Stephen Mansfield explores Obama's religious faith without political or ideological bias. Because if a man's faith is sincere, it is the most important thing about him, and it is impossible to understand who he is and how he will lead without first understanding the religious vision that informs his life. "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. His inspiration comes from his faith; he is an ardent believer. Yes, he is a Christian and proud of it." ---ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU NOBEL LAUREATE
While it is generally agreed that evangelical beliefs are a source for many members of the Tea Party and other conservative groups, Christian spirituality has also informed those on the Left, including Barack Obama. Author and philanthropist Stephen Mansfield (who has written about George W. Bush and Oprah Winfrey) describes how the president's faith was shaped by his experiences as a young adult in the Trinity United Church of God in Chicago. He paints a picture of a faith concerned with social activism, human rights, racial equality, economic justice, and peace.
