“You and our wonderful First Lady Michelle Obama, along with daughters Malia and Sasha, have personified such a living portrait of true family that your opponents and detractors ceased talking about ‘family values’.”

– Rev. Otis Moss, Jr., Pastor Emeritus of Olivet Institutional Baptist Church in Cleveland, Ohio

Mr. President

Interfaith Perspectives on the Historic Presidency of Barack H. Obama

This compilation captures the experiences, thoughts, and emotions of people who have known President Barack Obama—some from afar, many from up close. Contributors focus on the president’s expression of his Christian faith, his role as a husband and father, his legislative priorities, his personal demeanor, and his leadership style. They also address some of the social and political dynamics that have emerged during his time in office.

“[President Obama] repeatedly told his advisors that he wants to be remembered as the U.S. president who put the world on track to end hunger and poverty.”

– Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World

“No person of good will can deny that in today’s shamefully ugly political discourse, President Obama has acted in a much more Christian fashion than virtually all who have stooped to vilify him.”

– Obery M. Hendricks, Jr., professor of biblical interpretation at the New York Theological Seminary

“President Obama’s initiative in caring for the most vulnerable and neglected people on the planet, growing in numbers every day, is characteristic of the leader I know and admire.”

– Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, Executive Vice President of the Rabbinical Assembly
