“Few studies … systematically analyze the connections between faith-based groups and US foreign policymaking. Finding Faith in Foreign Policy works to fill this gap, shedding light on the complex relationships between religion and US foreign policy initiatives.”

“Although the theoretical richness might slow down the nonacademic reader in certain parts, policymakers will find great value in its content—not only those working on religious affairs, but also those in need of an analytical perspective through which to understand the relationship between any issue area and foreign policy.”
