About This Book

Members of Congress reflect on their deep faith and how it guides them as politicians and legislators in leadership, voting, and responding to our nation’s crises.

The book was compiled by Representative Virginia Foxx, who personally asked congressional colleagues who are devout in their Christian faith, representatives who are in a Bible study group with her, and colleagues she knows on a personal level to each contribute an essay.

Editorial Reviews

"An inspiring look at faith and politics. A worthy read."
-Former House Speaker John Boehner

"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."
