New book published on Donald Trump's Christian faith

by Tola Mbakwe

Entitled The Faith of Donald J. Trump: A Spiritual Biography, the book includes interviews with the Mr Trump and US Vice President Mike Pence about the president's religious beliefs and his relationship with evangelicals during the 2016 election.

The book was written by the chief political correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network and the Jesus in the Public Square columnist for the Washington Times.

It journeys through Mr Trump's faith starting from his Protestant confirmation to how he stood up for traditional Judaeo-Christian principles as a presidential candidate and as the leader of the United States.

Despite much criticism about Mr Trump's three marriages and politically incorrect behaviour, the authors maintain that "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".

James Robison, spiritual counsellor to the president told the authors: "God uses the imperfect people to accomplish his perfect will. He always has and always will."

The book explains that President Trump has surrounded himself with Christian leaders that will bring values of "hard work, discipline, duty, respect, and faith" back to America.
