God Is in the House:
Congressional Testimonies of Faith
by Virginia Foxx

About the Book

Members of Congress reflect on their deep faith and how it guides them as politicians and legislators in leadership, voting, and responding to our nation's crises.

The book was compiled by Representative Virginia Foxx, who personally asked congressional colleagues who are devout in their Christian faith, representatives who are in a Bible study group with her, and colleagues she knows on a personal level to each contribute an essay.

"An inspiring look at faith and politics. A worthy read." - John Boehner, Former Speaker of the House
