Theodore Roosevelt

Preaching from the Bully Pulpit

Benjamin J. Wetzel

Spiritual Lives

  • Offers the first religious biography of Theodore Roosevelt
  • Advances a significant historiographical conversation about how religious Roosevelt was
  • Argues that Roosevelt used his “bully pulpit” to preach with the language of the King James Bible; entertained a tolerant and ecumenical outlook toward Protestants, Catholics, and Jews; strongly defended the separation of church and state; and underwent a personal religious odyssey from youthful devotion to adult detachment
