Trump's presidency has forced evangelicals to confront a profound moral dilemma. Many of his actions and policies appeared to violate their core beliefs about compassion, honesty, and integrity.

Believe Me explores how this dilemma played out within the evangelical community. Some argued that they could not support a man like Trump, while others rationalized his behavior as a necessary evil.

Fea's penetrating analysis sheds light on the struggle evangelical voters faced between their faith and their political choices.

The embrace of Trump has deeply divided evangelicalism. Conservative evangelicals have grown increasingly vocal in their support of the president, while more moderate and progressive evangelicals have distanced themselves from the movement.

Believe Me examines the potential consequences of this divide for the future of evangelicalism. Will the movement become more fragmented, or will it find a way to reconcile its differences and move forward?

Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump is a captivating read that offers an intimate glimpse into the lives of evangelical voters. John Fea paints vivid portraits of the people who made up this movement, showcasing their hopes, fears, and motivations.

Through personal stories and in-depth interviews, Fea humanizes the evangelical experience, helping readers to understand the complex factors that shaped their political choices.

"Believe Me is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the rise of Donald Trump and the role of evangelical voters. John Fea has written a fair and balanced account that sheds light on this important chapter in American history."
