A sense of mission for America . . . a heart for God.

Senator Sam Brownback grew up in the heartland, in a family of hard-working Kansas farmers. Instilled from an early age with a strong work ethic and a fierce sense of independence, he continues to be guided by Christian values and beliefs: strength, courage, character, common sense, faith, and a keen sense of justice and moral responsibility.

From Power to Purpose is the firsthand account of his remarkable journey: from farm boy to U.S. Senator?and in 2008 the Republican candidate for the White House. In honest, straightforward prose, he recounts his trials, struggles, and lessons learned on the way to becoming one of our leading voices for bleeding-heart conservatism.

It's a proactive response to some of our country's most vexing problems. It's a message of hope and fresh ideas for a world that needs both.
