The Spiritual Danger of Donald Trump

The Spiritual Danger of Donald Trump: 30 Evangelical Christians, edited by Ron Sider, now available

30 prominent evangelicals biblically critique Donald Trump and his white evangelical support: a crisis of justice truth and integrity.

What should Christians think about Donald Trump? His policies, his style, his personal life?

Thirty evangelical Christians wrestle with these tough questions. They are Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. They don't all agree, but they seek to let Christ be the Lord of their political views. They seek to apply biblical standards to difficult debates about our current political situation.

Vast numbers of white evangelicals enthusiastically support Donald Trump. Do biblical standards on truth, justice, life, freedom, and personal integrity warrant or challenge that support? How does that support of President Trump affect the image of Christianity in the larger culture? Around the world? Many younger evangelicals today are rejecting evangelical Christianity, even Christianity itself. To what extent is that because of widespread evangelical support for Donald Trump?

Don't read this book to find support for your views. Read it to be challenged—with facts, reason, and biblical principles.
