"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.

I have to say that I love David and Nancy French. I read their columns on National Review and Patheos and have always found their work to be informative, well-written, and often humorous. I take my Christianity seriously, and have had major concerns about Romney, they put them to rest with this book. Some pros and cons:

Pros:

- Make the point that we are voting for a President, not a pastor.
- Make a great case that Romney's statements nearly two decades ago do not reflect his current views or how he actually governed
- Make a great case that he has shown conservative credentials even in the face of pressure and has done so consistently.

Cons:
- I understand they consider Mormons friends and don't want to (my words) "put on airs" by presuming to be better than them and example of Christ, on the other hand, we are supposed to be witnesses to everyone we meet so some of their statements in this regard rub me the wrong way.
- I get that some people on Right or other Christians have been nasty to them, but is it really true that there is no one like that who is also a Mormon? The praise is a little thick at times.

Overall:
A great and short read. They lay out a great case for why Romney is a consistent conservative and why Christians should feel no guilt about supporting him. The writing is well-done and to the point. They also model how people of different faiths can come together and work for a common goal. If we all could do that, we could be a mighty force for change in this country. A great read and while I won't say I'm "excited" to support Romney, I can certainly say that I "feel good about it", am confident in his conservatism, and that he would make not just an okay, but a great President.
