In interesting look at why Donald Trump is our current president. It lays in simple terms why the majority of evangelical Christians voted him into office. After an introduction, we look at Trump's background: his growing up and then his two main religious mentors. We also look at the factors that pushed the Christian community into backing Trump. Things like the Johnson Amendment, Obama and Hillary. After that, the author looks to the future and how evangelicals might possibly help fashion Trump into a great man. I think this is a must read for everybody. Trump supporters might understand their President better and their role in the nation's future. Anti-Trump people might get a better sense of the man. Those in the middle might be able to better understand Trump and how the future might proceed.

The author Stephen Mansfield relates who Trump's spiritual influences have been and explains why Christian conservatives were attracted to this unlikely candidate. They recognized that President Trump could reverse the downward decline and criminality of the liberals in power. He reflects on the vital role of prophetic distance, both historically and now, and shows how this is coming to pass. A great book recommended for those who don't get it. Also for those who do.
