Summary
A look at the life of the 43rd president of the United States, from his beginnings as a privileged alcoholic to his becoming a born-again Christian whose belief in religious destiny helped move him to the top ranks of political power. How Christianity turned his life around, how he met and married his wife, and the days before his decision to declare war on Iraq are featured
