The Faith of Barack Obama
Yes, Barack Obama is no longer a member of the United Church of Christ.
But, his faith was born and molded in the UCC.
For this reason, The Faith of Barack Obama will be of interest to those of us within the denomination.
The book is written by Stephen Mansfield, who also wrote The Faith of George W. Bush.
Mansfield probably didn't get much criticism in the evangelical community for writing about Bush, but he certainly is for writing about Obama. And while Mansfield is upfront that he doesn't agree with Obama politically, he argues that the conservative church community has no right to hate Obama simply for his politics.
I'll provide a full review of Mansfield's book.
That is, if the publisher comes through with their promise of a free copy.
