I have been trying to understand Barack Obama's religious views. He describes himself as a Christian and a follower of Jesus Christ and he has commented about the Bible and the role that it should play in setting public policy.
I've listened to CNN video of him and I've listened to Dr. James Dobson's reaction. What else do I need to read to more fully understand where he's coming from?
Here are some links from Christianity Today:
- Christianity Today online writes about his new connection to the faith community, Dr. Shaun Casey, a professor at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.
- ChristianityToday online writes about how Obama uses the Sermon on the Mount as his support for civil unions.
- Christianity Today online in a piece by Collin Hansen looks at what Obama says about the Bible and religion and writes about the good and the bad from an evangelical perspective.
- Christianity Today page of links to stories from the past about the pre-primary candidates and the various issues they raised related to faith.
