On April 20, 2004 The Lexington Herald-Leader reported, "At a recent news conference and in a new book by Bob Woodward, President Bush conveys a sense that, when it comes to foreign policy, he's on a mission from God. 'I also have this belief, strong belief, that freedom is not this country's gift to the world. Freedom is the Almighty's gift to every man and woman in this world,' Bush said during a news conference last week. 'And as the greatest power on the face of the Earth, we have an obligation to help spread that freedom.' Nearly four years into his presidency, Bush's strong Christian beliefs are well known. But through Woodward's book, and the president's own words, Americans are learning how Bush's faith drives his decisions, political and religion experts said."
