George W. Bush has invited more analysis and controversy over the impact of religion on his presidency than perhaps any chief executive of the modern era. Opinion on Bush's religiosity is intensely divisive, with conservative evangelicals seeing him as a man of deep faith and principles and at the same time many progressives seeing the president as almost dangerously fanatical. This volume is a scholarly review and analysis of the role of religion in the Bush presidency. It is divided into two sections of essays by leading scholars: The first examines the impact of various religious voting groups to the 2004 presidential campaign. The second reviews and assesses the impact of religion on the policies of the George W. Bush presidency.
