John Chandler's Faith-Based Policy: A Litmus Test for Understanding Contemporary America provides insight into the faith-based policies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Chandler argues that the faith-based experiment is becoming increasingly entrenched in the institutional fabric of American government and culture and that analyzing it reveals new paradigms that explode traditional political and religious designations such as conservative-liberal and evangelical-progressive.
