The Faith of Mike Pence
Mike Pence's faith sets him apart and defines him as a man, a husband, a father, and the vice president of the United States of America. What is the influence of Pence's faith upon history? Can he really apply biblical truths to political decisions? How does his faith define his role as a family man and a national leader? In this incredible book, the man emerges, not just because of faith, but because in finding faith, Pence has discovered who he is and has stepped forward to become the man God has called him to be.
In this favorable look at the faith of the nation's vice president, author Leslie Montgomery, who penned The Faith of Condoleezza Rice, details Pence's spiritual journey and discusses how it shapes his role in everyday life. To understand his brand of faith, Montgomery traces his family legacy, his boyhood in Columbus, Indiana, his years as an Irish, Roman Catholic, and then how he gave his life to Jesus as his personal Savior as a freshman at Hanover College.
Pence says, "When I went off to college, I made a personal decision that put my faith in Christ. And that's been a defining characteristic of my life ever since."
Mike Pence is a devoted husband and father who has surrounded himself with men and women of faith and has made his commitment to Christ a key component in his life. Montgomery details encounters with numerous evangelistic leaders, including Billy Graham and James Dobson, that were pivotal in Pence's spiritual growth. She also shows the role of Pence's Christianity in running for various offices, implementing faith-based initiatives, and responding to 9/11, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the infamous Anthrax scare in Congress that directly affected him.
The Faith of Mike Pence is a powerful account of one of the most conservative vice presidents in American history, with exclusive interviews and insightful commentary from friends, family, and colleagues. It is a serious and moving reflection from one of America's most admired and respected politicians.
