Thank you for taking time to read my stop on Celebrate Lit’s Book Tour and Giveaway for “The Faith of Mike Pence.” I hope you will enjoy learning about the book, the author, and Vice President Pence. Make sure you enter the giveaway for a $20 gift card, hardback copy of the book, and adult Faith and Freedom Coloring Book.
Vice President Mike Pence is quoted in author Leslie Montgomery’s book saying “I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.” My heart warmed when I read that. Author Montgomery did an outstanding job with this biography focusing on faith which Mr. Pence has unquestionably.
There are eighteen chapters in this open, frank book on the Vice President. I was not expecting so much scripture. It was a pleasant surprise. It is obvious that Mike Pence is a man of great faith. In my humble opinion he should be praised for that and not ridiculed or scoffed.
I liked the author’s easy style of writing. She had notes to back up her facts. The book was excellently planned and organized. I learned a lot of things about Mr. Pence. He was named after his maternal grandfather for one. He tells the complete story of his faith from being a young child in a faithful Christian home to being a straying teen and finally coming back to the Lord.
This is an uplifting, encouraging true story filled to the brim with faith. It will give readers a clearer view into the heart of Mike Pence. I loved it and would highly recommend it. Everyone should read it to get to know our Vice President better. It definitely gets a 5 star rating. Celebrate Lit provided a copy but these are my honest thoughts.
About the Book
Book: The Faith of Mike Pence
Author: Leslie Montgomery
Genre: Biography, religious, political
Release Date: August 6, 2019
Several books have been published about Vice President Mike Pence, but none have touched upon what may be the most fascinating aspect of our nation’s second in command: his deep faith.
The Faith of Mike Pence offers an intimate look at the man who calls himself “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.”
Author Leslie Montgomery details Pence’s spiritual journey and examines how the vice president’s commitment to Christ has been a key component in his life as a husband, father, and public servant. Montgomery examines Pence’s encounters with politicos and evangelistic leaders such as James Dobson and Charles Lake. She shows the role of Pence’s faith in running for various offices, implementing faith-based initiatives, and responding to 9/11, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the infamous Anthrax scare in Congress that directly affected him.
The Faith of Mike Pence is a powerful account of one of the most conservative vice presidents in American history, with exclusive interviews and insightful commentary from friends, family, and colleagues. It is a serious and moving reflection about one of America’s most admired and respected politicians.

More from Leslie
In 2006, I wrote and released The Faith of Condoleezza Rice, know-ing it might be years before I published another book. My husband and I were undergoing fertility treatments and vowed that if I got pregnant, I’d take a few years off of working outside the home to raise my children until they were in school full-time. Well, I did get pregnant and we had two children in the span of two-and-a-half years.
In early summer 2017, with two kids getting ready to start school again, I prayed and asked God to send me a new book contract; it was time to get back into the thick of things. Two weeks later, I dreamt that I was to write The Faith of Mike Pence. The truth is, neither he nor his faith were even on my radar. I got out of bed and began doing a little research. I wrote a book proposal for different publishers and began to accumulate a list of people I hoped to interview.
My overall goal with this book is not to set the vice president up as a spiritual hero, but to show the heart of the real man—as a Christian, husband, father, and politician. In doing so, I tried to allow his own words and those of his family, friends, and colleagues tell his story while I served as a conduit to weave it together. My prayer is that it inspires, encourages, and challenges you. —Leslie Montgomery
