A very inspired and original compilation for this election year, God Is in the House is a collection of essays by members of Congress who reflect on their deep faith and how it guides them as legislators. The book was compiled by Representative Virginia Foxx who personally asked congressional colleagues who are devout in their faith to contribute, coworkers who are in Bible study with her, and colleagues she knows on a personal level. The book includes seventeen members of Congress, representing ten Christian denominations from both political parties.
With the political uncertainty many American's are facing, it is a great time for a book like this to come out. God has not forsaken or abandoned this country, it is nice to know that there are politicians who seek inspiration.
