About Our Speaker
stephen-mansfield-ask-question-rStephen Mansfield
is a New York Times best-selling author and a popular speaker who also leads a media training firm based in Washington DC. He first rose to global attention with his groundbreaking book “The Faith of George W. Bush,” a bestseller that Time magazine credited with helping to shape the 2004 U.S. presidential election. The book was also a source for Oliver Stone’s award-winning film “W.” Mansfield’s “The Faith of Barack Obama” was another international bestseller. He has written celebrated biographies of Booker T. Washington, George Whitefield, Winston Churchill, Pope Benedict XVI, and Abraham Lincoln, among others. Publishers Weekly described his book, “Killing Jesus,” as “masterful.”

Stephen’s humorous but fiery “Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men” has inspired men’s events around the world. His more recent “The Miracle of the Kurds” has been selected as “Book of the Year” by Rudaw, the leading Kurdish news service. As a result of this book, Mansfield has become a leading voice in support of the Kurds against the evils of ISIS in the Middle East. In 2016, he released a book often lauded for its timeliness and insight: “Ask the Question: Why We Must Demand Religious Clarity From Our Presidential Candidates.”
