In her more than 200 year history, the United States of America has had only forty-three presidents. Each brought his own politics, personality and brand of religion to the White House. While almost a third of them belonged to either the Episcopalian or Presbyterian church, others practiced denominations as varied as Congregationalist, Disciples of Christ, Quaker, Reformed, Roman Catholic, and Unitarian. Even the eight commanders in chief who claimed no official affiliation, were intensely spiritual men.George W. Bush has made no secret of the place God and religion play in his presidency. John F. Kennedy will always be known as the first Roman Catholic president. But neither Thomas Jefferson nor Abraham Lincoln ever joined a church. And though some presidents worshipped publicly, some only in private, they all realized that the Constitutional guarantee of "freedom of religion" never meant freedom from religion.
"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." ―Lyndon B. Johnson
"So help me God." Goerge Washington added those words to the presidential oath, and every president since has followed suit. Whether their faith was devout or doubted, heartfelt of pragmatic, John McCollister plumbs America's strong and deep spiritual heritage, showing the fascinating and vital role faith played in the lives of each of our forty-three presidents:
From George Washington to George W. Bush, most of our country's chief executives have turned to God for assurance, guidance, and hope, Through what they learned in the Bible, bolstered by strength found in prayer, they have led America to become the greatest nation on earth. Timely and timeless, "God and the Oval Office tells "tells their story.
