The Faith of Barack Obama

The Faith of Barack Obama

Author: Admin

Date: 19 August, 2008

Stephen Mansfield’s new book, The Faith of Barack Obama, commends itself by it’s Christian demeanor. Mansfield’s work is not to be confused with books such as Jerome Corsi’s The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality or David Freddoso’s The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate. This work cannot in any way be considered a “hit piece” for the “Right” by any standard, except the that of the most extreme Left where any criticism of Mr. Obama is taken as defaming a Messianic figure. Though Mr. Mansfield would deny it, at times he does indeed seem to “gush” over Mr. Obama and even Trinity United Church of Christ. This is testimony to Mansfield’s intense desire to be evenhanded, despite Mansfield’s own professed conservative and pro-life convictions which would prevent him from voting for Obama. This work, then, is a serious attempt to dispassionately portray the faith of Presidential Candidate Obama in it’s most positive possible light. For that, Mansfield has taken and will take profound criticism from both the Left and the Right.
