"It's Mitt." No exclamation point, and precious little enthusiasm. After all, he's Mormon, and as much as I know America needs a smart manager to get us out of this mess, I hesitate to give this guy, whom I perceive to promote theological heresy, any kind of platform. Romney may mouth support for my social conservatism, but will he really deliver? . . . That's what I thought.

I just purchased and read through the French's pro-Romney book, in the course of the past hour. Frankly, despite my undergraduate studies in politics, I have never plowed through a political tract before. What this couple offers is a powerful evangelical Christian argument that not only allows me to proclaim loudly, "It's Mitt!"--but to do so with, err...evangelical fervor!

In this presentation we learn first that Presidents are not pastors, not evangelists, and not very influential at all, in the spiritual realm. Mitt will be a powerful leader, but will not likely usher one soul into a Mormon temple--certainly not an evangelical one!

More important to most, Mitt will bring us a comprehensive conservatism. Unlike most predecessors though, Romney knows how to implement policies in the face of tremendous liberal opposition. He actually gets stuff done, rather than just preaching from the political pulpit. Even "Romneycare" was an attempt to hold off a much worse liberal Democrat proposal for his state--an effort that proved mostly popular with his constituents.

The authors demonstrate convincingly that President Romney will promote a solid, sincere pro-life, pro-family, pro-traditional marriage agenda. His conversion from more liberal stances in the past is authentic and wholly believable. Coupled with this, Mitt is dedicated to religious liberty and freedom of conscience.

In their book, Why Evangelicals Should Support Mitt Romney (And Feel Good about It!), David and Nancy French share their experience about their decision to support Republican Presidential Candidate, Mitt Romney, starting with his first run back in 2006. Coming from Southern Evangelical backgrounds, their decision was not especially easy, particularly for Nancy whose initial reaction was, "I won't vote for a Mormon!"

The book takes us through their paradigm shift of determining that not only is it acceptable to support someone not of their belief system who shares their values but also determining that for them, Mitt Romney is the best qualified candidate in the field. They share their experiences of forming their blog 'Evangelicals for Mitt.org'; the comments from readers, both positive and negative, both from Non Mormons and Mormons alike. They address the issue of what a President Romney might do towards advancing the agenda of the Mormon church. They address Governor Romney's Romney's supposed flip-flops and his positions on all the major social and economic issues including gay marriage, abortion, RomneyCare vs. ObamaCare, and what he really did while working for Bain Capital.

There is also a very personal side to their story as Nancy shares her first experience "skiing" (or something like that) in Utah with the Romneys. David shares his feelings and observations about Mormons in general as he expresses his appreciation for the Mormon commitment to social issues he holds dear.

Throughout the book they make it absolutely clear that they are first and foremost Evangelicals. They are not interested in promoting the Mormon church nor would they want Governor Romney to be their pastor. But as they state many times, "We are not electing a Pastor-in-Chief.

I am not an Evangelical. In fact, I am a Mormon, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In reading this book I am reminded once again that even though Mormons and Evangelicals have theological disagreements, we certainly share values that unite us. Those values that we share often affect our political views, and David and Nancy French do an excellent job, from their Evangelical point of view, of detailing how we can work and vote together to make and keep ours a great nation.

Romney's Mormon faith was never an issue for me. What was an issue for me was his conservatism (or supposed lack thereof). I had initially dismissed him as a Northeastern liberal and bought into the line that he was a RINO (Republican in Name Only). I discovered, through the Evangelicals for Mitt website, other sites, and now this book, that I was wrong. This book makes a compelling case for Romney's conservatism, and he's someone that all conservatives, Evangelicals included, can support. He's an across-the-board conservative on economic, social, and national security issues. I hope you will take the time to read this book if you're a skeptic like I once was, and I hope it will change your mind.

Let me start by saying that I am one of "them". I am a born-again-Bible-believing-six-day-creation-virgin-birth-Jesus-really-walked-on-the-water Christian. I began my journey as a follower of Jesus in my mid-twenties. I have spent most of my time as a Christian in a Southern Baptist Church. On more than one occasion I have had a speaker in that church come prepared with supporting books/videos etc to teach us that Mormons (and other various "odd" religions) were a cult. My own experience with Mormons was while living in Southern Idaho for my husband's job. They were nice to us, but they never made us feel welcome. We thought they were "weird". So when Mitt Romney ran in 2008, I dismissed him. I paid him no mind whatsoever and it didn't matter to me much because I was completely behind the candidacy of one of "my own" in Mike Huckabee (who I continue to have great respect for). When this newest election cycle began I still paid Romney no mind. He's a Mormon, in my mind that eliminated him (and many if not most of my friends felt the same way). I didn't bother to do any research, that was all I needed to know (much like Nancy's attitude in the outset of her story). Then I watched (in disgust) as my Governor attacked Romney for his wealth and work in the free market. It really hit a nerve with me that a Republican (albeit a Republican who has never worked for anyone outside his Government)would attack capitalism! So I decided to find out more about Romney as a candidate. I decided that I was not looking at him holistically. I decided I was a bigot. I googled "why should a Christian vote for Mitt Romney" and I found the French's book. I had already read all the reasons why I shouldn't vote for him, now I was ready to read something about why I should. What a concept!Read more ›
