A Man of Faith: The Spiritual Journey of George W. Bush Reviews
For some reason, (I don't know what) the author of this book kept mentioning and bashing Calvinism. I wonder what pertinence he felt this had to the topic of George W. Bush....?
I think history will show kindly on President Bush. I have no problem with those who disagree with President Bush, however I have little time for the foolishness of those who feel he was the worse president ever, etc. The ridiculousness of those people cannot be changed no matter how much one pleads. At the age of 37 I have been alive for six presidents serving in office. I was only 2 when Carter lost the election but my parents didn't care for Carter because they felt he did more harm for farmers then good (they are farmers) Since I trust my parents judgment, I will also pass on Carter although I must admit I have read very little about him. President Reagan was at the height of the Moral Majority and my family were big supporters. President Reagan, is probably my favorite president not named Lincoln. Bush senior served in a very crucial time but most critics seem to feel he failed to show the people the hope of the future. President Clinton was a good speaker, charismatic, and knowledgeable but his moral failings and well documented relaxed White House made him an utter failure in my books. I don't care for President Obama's policies either. President Bush was the president of the birth of my adulthood. Newly married, I proudly supported W. I didn't regret it then nor do I now. At the crucial events of 9-11, President Bush was the right man in office. He made mistakes in his presidency but overall he brought back honor to the White House. The media and Hollywood have made him a scape goat for some of the failures seen in the last several years but I don't believe they are warranted. On another note, it has been documented that WMD were found in Iraq, and I do believe that President Bush was correct in invading. As far as this book, what is there to say? It is a great insight on the life of 43 and his strong faith. I thought the author did a great job and bringing us up close to see how faith played a part in President Bush in his early life as well as his presidency. It also gave some nice insight into the beliefs of other presidents as well. Read the book.
It was a slow read but gave me a better understanding of who George W. was and the reasoning behind his actions. Like the saying goes..."You can't judge a book by it's cover" and that is certainly true of #43.
Very informative and enjoy reading how it is possible to take your faith to work with you. Not an easy read and a struggle to get through some parts.
I new he was a Christian man but this book makes me appreciate him even more.
