    1. This is both a story of forgiveness, but one of the best, most thoughtful, and insightful looks into the administration of George W Bush It delves not only into the life of the author, but takes a serious look at the roll faith played within the White House during the Bush years and how that faith played out in policy decisions.

    2. A wonderful read of things in the Whitehouse during the Bush administration The respect for this great president only strengthened with this book.

    3.

While this isn t a great book, Tim Goeglein s earnestness and sincerity is rare, as is his ability to admit mistakes without any qualifying factors Basically, he spends most of the book explaining why he favored this or that policy of the Bush Administration, and his role in helping shape and push forward that policy It s the opposite of unbiased, but that s OK He s much critical of himself than he is his former bosses If nothing else, this book shows how a man of principle can survive and thri [...]

    6. I thought this book was going to be about George W Bush However, it turned into a foray into the life of a crazy ultra conservative Yuck Didn t even finish it It did not impress me that much.
