About the Author:

Virginia Foxx is the US representative from North Carolina's Fifth Congressional District. She is a Republican and was elected secretary of the House Republican Conference in 2012.

Review:

''An inspiring look at faith and politics. A worthy read.'' -- John Boehner Former Speaker of the House of Representatives

''North Carolina's fifth congressional district is represented by Foxx, a self-identified Catholic-Baptist and Republican, who wants to restore Americans' faith in the churchgoing members of Congress. By collecting short faith testimonies by current and former congressional representatives, Democrats and Republicans, men and women, from across Christian denominations, Foxx pulls back the curtain on Capitol Hill Bible studies and prayer groups, revealing a surprising bipartisan unity when it comes to nurturing one's faith life in the midst of often corrosive politics. Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals, and others candidly discuss their religious backgrounds, daily practices, the establishment clause of the First Amendment, and public service as an act of faith.'' --Publishers Weekly
