Based on extensive inside sources, including exclusive interviews with the President and Vice President, The Faith of Donald J. Trump explores his rarely discussed, but deeply important, religious beliefs and relationships with leading Evangelicals.

The Chief Political Correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network and the "Jesus in the Public Square" columnist for the Washington Times explore the rarely discussed, but deeply important, religious beliefs and worldview of Donald J. Trump and his advisors.

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 advisors who share his deep faith. In this deeply reported book, David Brody and Scott Lamb draw on unparalleled access to the White House to explain President Trump’s connection to the Christian faith, the evangelical right, the prosperity gospel, and the pressing moral and ethical issues of our day.

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.

The Faith of Donald Trump is a very good book. Most liberals won't like it, but if you have an open mind and have some knowledge of what it means to be ' saved ' or ' born again ', you will discover this book to be a fascinating read. Trump is brash, but has more ' heart ' than most people realize. As I told a person the other day, who said, "Trump ' doesn't know what the average person's life is like ". However, I told that same person and many others, the average person wouldn't have a clue how to run a large organization (such as Trump does). In the same manner, the average person wouldn't have a clue how to run the government. That has been proven many times by presidents who had never managed a large, complicated business or organization and were unqualified.

The Faith of Donald J. Trump Whether you love President Trump, detest him or are something in between, you will find this book enlightening about the formation of the man who leads our nation, and the role religion has played in the life of both himself and his ancestors. I am very well-read on the election of 2016, but learned a lot from the looks behind-the-scenes I liked that the book is pretty straight-shooting - good,bad or ugly.

It was just so hard to read about his supposed faith knowing he sleeps with prostitutes and takes innocent kids form their mothers. I wish the author would have been more honest about trump's deviant and sinful behavior, it isn't like we don't see it!
