Presidential Campaign Rhetoric in the Age of Confessional Politics analyzes religious rhetoric in presidential campaigns from 1976-2008, proposing a confessional political style successful candidates must employ that differs sharply from earlier ideals of civic piety. Brian T. Kaylor also considers changes in American society that helped create this confessional political system and critiques the problems with this system.

This treasure trove of stories and statements from the presidential campaign trail will thrill political junkies and captivate all those who care about faith and politics. Brian Kaylor skillfully demonstrates how discussions of a candidate's religious beliefs have become an essential part of running for president, and he offers powerful arguments about what this portends - not only for politics, but also for religious liberty, religion, and our democracy. -- Melissa Rogers, Wake Forest University Divinity School
