Abstract [en]

The Religious Dimension of George H.W. Bush has often been overlooked by his biographers. However, the entries in Bush’s The China Diary along with his official comments on his experiences in China as President of the U.S., show clearly that Bush stands not only in a tradition which stresses the importance of Christian faith, Christian liturgy and Christian hymns, but also in a sort of Evangelical tradition, in which you openly both speak about and act on your faith. The imprint of the China experience is evident, both politically and spiritually, and the entries are congenial with, for example, the very clear religious dimension in the politics of Bush Sr. as President of the United States.
