Randall Balmer, one of America’s top historians, explores the role of personal piety and public displays of faith in each of the modern presidencies--from J.F.K to George W. Bush--and shows how these change according to the times and what they reveal about the man sitting in the Oval Office.

From the Back Cover:

Beginning with JFK’s presidential campaign and ending with the George W. Bush White House, Randall Balmer explores the role religion plays in the personal and political lives of America’s presidents.

Through exploring how religion affected our presidents’ personal lives, policies, and campaigns, Balmer reveals that religion is one of the main influencers behind our nation’s leaders and a common thread that connects each of their administrations. Balmer offers a new lens through which to see these extraordinary individuals.

Balmer was nominated for an Emmy Award and was the recipient of the Sidney E. Mead Prize from the American Society of Church History.

He is editor-at-large for Christianity Today, and his commentaries on religion in America have appeared in Sojourners, The Nation, the New York Times, and in newspapers across the country. He regularly appears on television and radio to discuss contemporary religious issues in America.
