    The Faith of Barack Obama

    Thomas Nelson (the Christian Publishing Company) recently held an open invitation to recieve a free book in exchange for a 200 word review. It was open to the first 100 bloggers to request the honor. I was among the first 100! The book is The Faith of Barack Obama by Stephen Mansfield. Below is my review on the book. It truly was a great read and definitely opened my eyes to who Obama is as a man of faith and what he truly believes.

    "An excellent clear view of Barack Obama. The Faith of Barack Obama clearly defines the lines of his faith and politics. There have been many arguments about Obama, his faith and his values. From both the right-wing and left-wing, Barack has taken his punches. This book is a transparent look at how he allows his faith to define him. Not conformed to the right-wing of Christianity, nor fully defined by his Spiritual Father (Rev. Wright), Obama is and will remain a man of faith, defined by what he believes.
    The Faith of Barack Obama answers many questions of those concerned about the mans faith. It takes you from the beginning of his faith journey to where he stands now. A moving piece of literature pregnant with the real hard facts. Stephen Mansfield hits a homerun with his literary piece on The Faith of Barack Obama. Not content to wallow in the mushy falsified attempts to discredit Obama as a man of faith, Mansfield highlights all of the key speeches Obama has made in order to define what he truly believes. I strongly recommend you pick up your own copy in order to clearly view Barack Obama and his faith."---Reviewed by Marv Nelson

    Good review. I'm also one of the Nelson reviewers, though I decided to do a series rather than a single review. Thought you might be interested. My first two posts are here and here.

    Nice review. I have also reviewed the book - only I was delayed due to Hurricane Ike. It's fun reading the differing reviews.
