Editorial Reviews


This treasure trove of stories and statements from the presidential campaign trail will thrill political junkies and captivate all those who care about faith and politics. Brian Kaylor skillfully demonstrates how discussions of a candidate’s religious beliefs have become an essential part of running for president, and he offers powerful arguments about what this portends – not only for politics, but also for religious liberty, religion, and our democracy. (Melissa Rogers, Wake Forest University Divinity School)

I heartily recommend his discussion of this important dimension of contemporary presidential rhetoric. (Presidential Studies Quarterly Review)
