In part, the authors argue, President Trump won over evangelicals not by pandering to them, but by supporting them and all their most important issues without pretending to be something he’s not. Though the forty-fifth president is far from the perfect vessel—he has been married three times—his supporters argue that Donald Trump may be just what America needs. This book reveals how he has surrounded himself with believers who think he is the one guiding figure who can return us to the traditional values—hard work, discipline, duty, respect, and faith—that have long been the foundation of American life, and truly make America great again in all ways.

From the Back Cover
Donald Trump seems to be on a spiritual voyage that has accelerated greatly in the past few years. That journey has been very public and yet very private, mocked by his enemies and admired by his friends.

Now David Brody and Scott Lamb have reconstructed that journey, based on extensive interviews with President Trump himself and those closest to him, including Vice President Mike Pence.

As James Robison, a spiritual counselor and friend to the president, has told the authors: “God uses imperfect people to accomplish His perfect will. He always has and always will.” Trump won over evangelicals not by pandering to them, but by supporting them and all their most important issues without pretending to be someone he’s not. Though the forty-fifth president is far from the likeliest vessel—he has been married three times—his supporters argued that Donald Trump may be just what America needs.

From his Protestant confirmation in Jamaica, Queens, through the wild ride of the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s, and concluding with the laying on of hands in the Oval Office, The Faith of Donald J. Trump demonstrates how he has surrounded himself with believers who think he is the one guiding figure who can return us to the traditional values—hard work, discipline, duty, respect, and faith—that have long been the foundation of American life, and truly make America great again in all ways.

Donald J. Trump was raised as a Presbyterian and has praised both Christianity and the primacy of the Bible. In the Oval Office, he has surrounded himself with close advisers who share his deep faith. Throughout the book the authors chronicle his policies and guidelines that show him to be someone who evangelicals believe is standing up for traditional Judeo-Christian principles.
