About the Author
Stephen Mansfield grew up largely in Europe as the son of a U.S. Army officer, an experience that afforded him an early love of history and international affairs. After becoming a Christian at the age of eighteen, Stephen attended a university where biblical faith and intellectual pursuits were merged. This integration of faith and thought shaped him profoundly, and he went on over the next several decades to earn two master’s degrees and a doctorate in the fields of history, philosophy and literature. Stephen’s life message is the idea of destiny, the certainty that God has made all things, including men and nations, with a purpose. All of his writing, his teaching, his work in the nations-and more recently, his focus on calling the United States to a reclaiming of its purpose-is centered around this much-neglected theme. Stephen is currently working on a variety of writing projects, including several biographies of great contemporary leaders. Stephen is the author of numerous books in history and leadership, including Never Give In: The extraordinary Character of Winston Churchill and Then Darkness Fled: The Liberating Wisdom of Booker T. Washington, and recently, the New York Times bestseller The Faith of George W. Bush.

We see in George W Bush a man who has the total confidence of one who understands his purpose and who has total faith in his God, but who, at the same time, humbles himself before that God, knowing that all can and will be lost if he succumbs to the temptation of pride and forgets that he is only where he is by the grace of God.
This is a book that needed to be written, and should be read by all who truly want to understand what motivates this 43rd President of the United States.
What is most fascinating in the book is to see how George Bush's beliefs have affected his leadership development and style. The information about the Bush family history provides insight into the Bush family structure and belief systems and what motivates them in general, and George W. Bush in particular.
I came away from reading the book with some lessons in leadership, spirituality and courage. I think that one can learn from every person who has achieved something, no matter whether I agree with their politics or religion. I highly recommend the book to all with an open mind.
I let my father-in-law, a long-time labor Democrat read the book, and he said he had gained a newfound respect for the president. I hope the same will be said for other Christians who read this book with an open mind.
The book is a quick read which examines the religious histories of both the USA and the Bush family. From these contexts Mansfield reveals George W. Bush's spriritual awakening which occured late in his adult life and how this awakening has made him whole. As a spiritual biography of sorts, The Faith of George W. Bush illustrates that in his search for self fulfillment, Bush has found the answer which few seem to discover and fewer actually act on. What answer is that? Getting into heaven is more important than getting into Forbes.
Also, we all have a soul which plays a much greater role in our big picture and sometimes due to the hectic pace we all lead; we neglect it to our overall detriment. Best Wishes.
