Ask the Question: Why We Must Demand Religious Clarity from Our Presidential Candidates

by: Stephen Mansfield

For most of American history, the conventional wisdom has been that religion is too private a matter to ask a political candidate about. But in a political landscape in which we see Muslims, atheists, Mormons, Buddhists, and Christians of all stripes running for high office, we cannot afford to avoid religious questions. It is the right of American voters to know what their candidates believe since those beliefs shape policy and thus action.

In this rousing call to action, Stephen Mansfield shows readers

· what religion can mean in a presidential race
· how the media, both left and right, get religion wrong
· the reasons the faith of candidates such as JFK, Mitt Romney, and Barack Obama caused issues with voters 
· why Hillary Clinton is among the most religious politicians on the American scene today
· how to ask the right questions to get honest answers
· what giving candidates a "religious pass" can cost the country
· how religion in American politics impacts America's role in the world
· and more

Stephen Mansfield is the New York Times bestselling author of The Faith of George W. Bush, The Faith of Barack Obama, and Lincoln's Battle with God, among other works of history and biography.
