Press Release #2

God and the oval office

A new & timely book by John McCollister, Ph.D.

 

PORT ORANGE, FLORIDA, MARCH 21, 2005.  How have the 43 presidents’ individual religion and faith, or the absence thereof, affected the direction and destiny of the U.S.A.?  From George Washington to George W. Bush, most of our country’s chief executives have turned to God in varying degrees for assurance, guidance and hope.  Timely and timeless, GOD AND THE OVAL OFFICE tells their stories. 

 

John McCollister, author of 21 books, has devoted years of research into how each of our presidents has chosen, or not chosen, to use his faiths in their decisions.

 

As President Lyndon Johnson said, “We need to remember that the separation of church and state must never mean the separation of religious values from the lives of public servants.”

Thomas Jefferson disagreed with many passages in the Bible.  He, therefore, edited a new version of the Gospels which became known as the “Jefferson Bible”.

 

When the Roman Catholic Church was looked upon despairingly by many Protestants, Andrew Johnson secretly practiced Catholicism.

 

Readers get a unique, insider’s view how of each president viewed his faith and how he applied their principles personally and officially.

 

David Aikman, author of the best-selling “A Man of Faith: The Spiritual Journey of George W. Bush”, says of GOD AND THE OVAL OFFICE: “The richness of detail in this book should make it required reading for anyone interested in how the enormous a role faith has always played in the presidential leadership of this nation.”

 

“When one understands a person’s depth of faith, one is better able to understand that person’s decision making progress,” Dr. McCollister adds.
