Discover the unapologetically Christian and liberal Barack Obama - and how he represents the changing face of religion in American politics. You'd have to live in a cave to have avoided hearing about Barack Obama's woes as he deals with the crises arising from his former pastor, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. How could Sen. Obama attend for 20 years a church permeated by a defining, if understandable, spirit of anger toward white America? There is, however, much more to the senator's faith than this one issue. In "The Faith of Barack Obama", Stephen Mansfield explores Obama's religious faith without political or ideological bias. Because 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.
