God Is in the House
God Is in the House: Congressional Testimonies of Faith
Foreword by Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House.
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.
