About the Book
Book: The Faith of Mike Pence
Author: Leslie Montgomery
Genre: Biography, religious, political
Release Date: August 6, 2019
Several books have been published about Vice President Mike Pence, but none have touched upon what may be the most fascinating aspect of our nation’s second in command: his deep faith.
The Faith of Mike Pence offers an intimate look at the man who calls himself “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.”
Author Leslie Montgomery details Pence’s spiritual journey and examines how the vice president’s commitment to Christ has been a key component in his life as a husband, father, and public servant. Montgomery examines Pence’s encounters with politicos and evangelistic leaders such as James Dobson and Charles Lake. She shows the role of Pence’s faith in running for various offices, implementing faith-based initiatives, and responding to 9/11, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the infamous Anthrax scare in Congress that directly affected him.
The Faith of Mike Pence is a powerful account of one of the most conservative vice presidents in American history, with exclusive interviews and insightful commentary from friends, family, and colleagues. It is a serious and moving reflection about one of America’s most admired and respected politicians.

So, no matter where your political views lie, you have to admit Mike Pence is a unique, interesting guy if for no other reason than his seemingly untouchable calmness in all situations. I really admire that he and his family seem to really live out their lives based off their personal relationship with Christ, and don't just use religion as a political power play like most politicians do. What I really liked about the book was it showed Mike Pence as an average guy, and showed another side to him when he wasn't the guy we know now, and how he made mistakes along the way. The book is presented from many printed sources and also from interviews including family members, friends, other politicians, and even those that aren't particularly religious, but had been impacted by Mike Pence. I know with politics being so divisive today, it can be hard to pick up a book like this, but I was really refreshed that it wasn't a book set out to really put Mike Pence on a pedestal, but just show how the Lord has led him and continues to lead Him to be involved in our country's leadership in some way or form. I think regardless of political beliefs, the quality of writing and relatability of this man that is now our Vice President makes for an interesting read. The book is also written in an inviting and smooth flowing way rather than presenting a lot of facts. At the end, I didn't feel like the book was a political manifesto, but rather an interesting and in depth look at an average man that happens to now be our Vice President.
I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

More from Leslie
In 2006, I wrote and released The Faith of Condoleezza Rice, know-ing it might be years before I published another book. My husband and I were undergoing fertility treatments and vowed that if I got pregnant, I’d take a few years off of working outside the home to raise my children until they were in school full-time. Well, I did get pregnant and we had two children in the span of two-and-a-half years.
In early summer 2017, with two kids getting ready to start school again, I prayed and asked God to send me a new book contract; it was time to get back into the thick of things. Two weeks later, I dreamt that I was to write The Faith of Mike Pence. The truth is, neither he nor his faith were even on my radar. I got out of bed and began doing a little research. I wrote a book proposal for different publishers and began to accumulate a list of people I hoped to interview.
My overall goal with this book is not to set the vice president up as a spiritual hero, but to show the heart of the real man—as a Christian, husband, father, and politician. In doing so, I tried to allow his own words and those of his family, friends, and colleagues tell his story while I served as a conduit to weave it together. My prayer is that it inspires, encourages, and challenges you. —Leslie Montgomery
