Summary:

The first audiobook to explore the religious ideals that drive the policies and politics of Bush as president and that have privately shaped Bush as a man. His life demonstrates the power of faith to create change, to build a family and political career, and to shape the destiny of a nation with his leadership. This audiobook shows us how George W. Bush interjects his faith and belief in God into every detail of his life. From the President's devotional time alone each morning to his frequent incorporation of Scripture into his speeches, Bush relies upon his faith to direct his actions and goals. From the tragedy of September 11th to the present-day conflict in Iraq, President Bush has learned to use his personal faith to help him live his life - both in office and in private. This audiobook will inspire others to do the same.

    This is actually a good biography of Bush. I was pleasantly surprised. It kept me engaged. I think it showed a very personal side of someone we only see from a public perspective. It gave a lot of details regarding his faith and the impact it has had on his life, which is what i was interested in the most. But it largely focuses on his life story, weaving his faith into that main story.

    I just read a previous review by Greg Newby from Memphis, TN. How can two people read the same book and conclude two totally opposite opinions? It was not an autobiography. It was an account of his spiritual journey and the way he dealt with events on that jouryey. This book gives one an excellent insight into what motivates George Bush. You may not agree with his policies or faith practices, but knowing what motivates a man can help you understand where he is coming from. It was an excellent read.

    The book gave me a new appreciation and respect for this president as he daily must make decisions that affect our country and the world. It give me confidence and support for his capable administration who he appears to have chosen with a high standard for morality

    If George W. Bush does any praying at all, it's to the almighty dollar. That's what makes this piece of audio-fiction so outrageously funny. Christianity is a rhetorical device for a man who can't even spell 'rhetorical.' I remember Christ saying something about not praying out where everyone can see you, but to do it privately, in your closet. So why does Bushy Boy wear his righteousness on his sleeve? It's because he's doing the very thing that Christ wanted us to avoid: using religion for other purposes. In his case, the purpose is to justify his corrupt policies and make the Christian right believe that he is being led by the Holy Spirit, so that nothing he he says or does can be questioned or criticized. Well, if Bush is being personally led by God, then I can tell you exactly what God looks like. He's rectangular, made of paper, has a mixture of green and black ink, and bears a picture of George Washington on his front.
