Alastair Campbell's 'We don't do God' is one of the most (mis)quoted sound bites of the age but, however much it might have been right concerning his political master (and therein lies a debate), it is certainly not true of all contemporary political leaders. Indeed, it is striking how many global political leaders are Christian believers and how far their faith shapes and is shaped by their politics - for better or for worse. This collection examines how a range of recent and contemporary leaders have 'done God': their Christian background and formation; how it has informed their political values and agenda, their priorities and their rhetoric; and what all this says about Christianity and contemporary political power. The collection will cover figures including Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, George W. Bush, Stephen Harper, Tarja Halonen, Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Kevin Rudd, Nicholas Sarkozy, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Margaret Thatcher.
