The Faith of George W. Bush
From “The Faith of George Bush” to refusing to fight in Iraq
Stephen Mansfield is a writer and speaker best known for his groundbreaking books on the role of religion in history, leadership and modern culture. He first came to international attention with “The Faith of George W. Bush,” the New York Times bestseller that influenced Oliver Stone’s film W. His book “The Faith of Barack Obama” was another international bestseller. He has written celebrated biographies of Booker T. Washington, George Whitefield, Winston Churchill, and Abraham Lincoln, among others. Known for aggressively researching his books, Mansfield worked in a brewery while writing “The Search for God and Guinness” and was embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq to produce The Faith of the American Soldier.
Stephen speaks around the world on topics of faith, leadership and culture. He is also the founder of two firms, The Mansfield Group (MansfieldGroup.com) and Chartwell Literary Group (ChartwellLiterary.com). He is a frequent commentator on television news programs, a writer for a number of leading websites and an outspoken advocate for a variety of social causes. A single sentence from one of his books about religion in the Oval Office captures the guiding principle of his work: “If a man’s faith is sincere, it is the most important thing about him and… it is impossible to understand who he is and how he will lead without first understanding the religious vision that informs his life.”
Stephen lives in Nashville and Washington DC with his wife, Beverly, who is an award-winning songwriter and producer. For more information, log onto MansfieldGroup.com.
