Donald Trump is making an appeal to evangelical voters by hosting a meeting with 30 Christian leaders, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Among those leaders will be Paula White, who has interviewed Trump on her program for many years. 

The invitation-only event is planned for Sept. 28. 

"Mr. Trump's goal is simple: to hear the heart of America's Christian leaders and learn what they feel are the most critical issues facing our nation today," Sheila Withum says.

The politician's blunt talk is one of the reasons he's the Republican front-runner. 

CBN's David Brody breaks it down like this: "Hey look, you may not think of Donald Trump and evangelicals as being the perfect fit but that would be a lazy misread of the situation. I'm not saying Trump is a hit with all evangelicals. I know his egotism can rub some the wrong way but let me clue you in to a little secret. Trump's ability to cut through the clutter and paint the world in 'absolutes' attracts quite a few evangelical voters."

Trump's campaign is pulling out all the stops to woo Christian voters. He recently told a rally his favorite book is the Bible, but later refused to share his favorite verse

When asked directly about the specifics of his faith, Trump tells reporters he's "not sure" if he's ever asked forgiveness for his sins, but he does love God.
