Some Americans love him, and some feel much differently, but everyone would agree that President Donald Trump has been a force in American society over the past year and has cemented his place in American history.
Award-winning journalist and author Stephen E. Strang is releasing his new book, God and Donald Trump, tomorrow. And in it, he highlights the influential evangelical leaders who implored Christians across the nation to educate themselves about what was at stake in the 2016 election. In the new book, Strang also shares his personal interviews and gives a behind-the-scenes perspective on the road to the Trump White House and the billionaire businessman's headline-making time in office thus far.
Former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee penned the foreword for God and Donald Trump.
"Since his election, I'm encouraged by the way President Trump has surrounded himself with a number of evangelical Christians, starting with Vice President Mike Pence, and genuinely desires their counsel," Huckabee wrote. "I believe his continued openness to input from Christian leaders shows that he wasn't only pandering for votes, but that he truly understands and welcomes godly advice and he sees the value of prayer. Trump once said, 'Imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people, under one God, saluting one flag.' I believe that is still his dream and he intends to see it through as he leads our country from the Oval Office."
Other influential leaders have also offered words of praise for God and Donald Trump.
- "God and Donald Trump may very well be one of the most important books about the Trump presidency. Steve Strang has delivered a terrific book that cuts through the mainstream media narrative to explore the spiritual life of the 45th president, and in doing so, we get to see the true heart of Donald Trump." —Todd Starnes, Fox News
- "Everyone is curious about the topic of God and Donald Trump. That's why I'm so thankful that a trusted Christian writer like Steve Strang took on this timely challenge. I know President Donald Trump personally. I like him as a man, and I enjoy serving on his Faith Advisory Board. President Trump sincerely cares about protecting every American's religious liberty rights under our brilliant First Amendment. In God and Donald Trump you'll find a comprehensive, realistic and fair assessment of President Trump's faith. In fact, I'm confident you'll be pleased by what you read. I've come to trust and rely upon Steve's words since I began reading his columns in Charisma magazine in the 1980s. Enjoy this important book! —Michele Bachmann, former presidential candidate and Minnesota Congresswoman
- "Evangelical and pro-life Catholic Christians turned out at the polls in record numbers on Nov. 8, 2016. Eager to see the end of the lawless actions of the Obama administration, they helped elect Donald J. Trump president, the only president in American history to never have held public office or served in the military. Steve Strang has done Christendom a service in God and Donald Trump by documenting a miracle of God." —David Lane, American Renewal Project
Set for release tomorrow—Nov. 7, almost a year to the day from the 2016 presidential election—God and Donald Trump takes an incisive look at these and other factors that drove millions of conservative and evangelical voters to the polls.
Strang is an award-winning journalist and successful businessman who began his career as a newspaper reporter at the Orlando Sentinel. He later founded a Christian publishing house and media company while interviewing and writing about nearly every Christian leader in the country over the past four decades.
